Igbos will waste their votes by supporting Peter Obi – Jibrin

Ahead of 2023 poll, a former member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin has warned the Igbos, saying that they would just be wasting their votes if they vote for the  the Labour Party in 2023.

According to him, the best way for the South East to produce the President is to embrace Kwankwaso who will hand over to the geo-political zone at the end of his tenure

Speaking during an interview on Channels T, Jibrin insisted that the people of the region should back the Ex-Governor of Kano.

“Since the Vice President of Alex Rkwueme, the South East has not sat on the table to discuss the presidency in real term to take over the Presidency of Nigeria.

“They’ve never been given that opportunity. This is the first time they will sit at the table with the NNPP to discuss, and sign a concrete agreement that after Kwankwaso, it’s going to be the Eastern part of the country.

“Since after Alex Ekwueme, this will be the first time the South East will have that clarity that after this certain number of years it will be our time.

“And I believe that that is the safest route. But again they have the option to decide to hold on to their votes or waste it if they want to demonstrate their strength.

“The Yorubas have done that for decades…I believe that one of the safest routes for them is to go into alliance with the NNPP for Peter Obi to run as a running mate and after that power can go back to the South-East… the vote for the Labour Party cannot give them the presidency. So if it is in terms of the presidency they may decide to waste their votes.
