Ben Murray Bruce Backs Atiku On Choice Of Peter Obi As Running Mate.
Naija News reports that Ebonyi Governor, Umahi yesterday, complained that South East leaders were not properly consulted before a running mate was chosen from the region.
Ben Bruce said the party does not need anyone to jinx the effort of the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who he believes was doing his best to give the PDP victory in 2019.
Governor Umahi had yesterday explained that although he was not against the choice of former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, as the running mate of Atiku, but the fact such decision should have been made by party stakeholders in the South-East.
.@Atiku has oompah and this is definitely his time. We in the @OfficialPDPNig do not need any body to jinx this momentum. Umahi should take a chill pill. Atiku and Peter Obi must be allowed to surf this wave all the way to power without any naysayers trying to stop the movement.
