While congratulating the PDP presidential running mate in a statement at the weekend, the national coordinator of SERG, Chief Willy Ezugwu maintained that “the appointment has put the country on the path of healing and reconciliation and has proven that the argument that the appointments into the kitchen cabinet of the current federal government was based on merit without a south easterner holds no water.

The PDP presidential running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was picked and made public on Friday.

“With the intimidating profile of the would-be Vice President of the federal republic of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has proven that the South East has more than qualified sons and daughters to occupy any position in Nigeria.

“The choice of Peter Obi has made the combination of the two highly educated joint-candidate of the PDP the team to beat. This is a combination of the best competent and trusted human and resources managers Nigeria has ever produced as presidential candidates.

“With Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi as accomplish businessmen and administrators, it is obvious that Nigeria will work again”, the group said over PDP presidential running mate unveiling.

“He (Obi) is a believer in the rule of law, just like the PDP presidential candidate as both their tenure as governor and Vice President, respectively, were saved by the courts.

“And with no corruption evidence against the duo, it has raised the bar of hope as regards war against corruption.

“Under Peter Obi’s watch as the governor of Anambra State, insecurity was
a thing of the past as he sanitized Onitsha and other Anambra cities known
for crime and turned then into commercial centres.

“Nigeria and Nigerians are indeed lucky to have this unique combination of
educated and excellent human beings in both private and public life as in-coming President and Vice President at this time that the country is at its lowest ebb economically”, the SERG noted.
