Secondus, in an interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja on Sunday, said that it was unfortunate that Osinbajo could join the fray of those he described as deceitful in the name of politics. Also, the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, accused the APC of acting like a prostitute, who he said, “is busy duping every man under the guise that she will marry all of them.”
He said there was no way a party would give the same presidential ticket to two geopolitical zones in 2023, saying the APC was just being deceitful.
“The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, said the party would give the ticket to the South-West while the SGF, Boss Mustapha, said it was a lie. He said that the party would look at the side of the South-East. Why the contradiction just because of politics? We all know that Osinbajo is a pastor and a professor of law. It is a pity.”
Also, the African Action Congress and the #TakeItBack Movement#, the campaign organ of Omoyele Sowore, on Sunday called on Osinbajo and the APC to consider national interest and stop dividing Nigeria.
“The masses therefore should unite with one language – ‘to fight for the soul of Nigeria.’ Nigeria must progress!”
A statement by the Director of Sowore 2019 Campaign/AAC (Media and Communications), Rachel Onamusi-Kpiasi, said the Buhari’s administration had succeeded in establishing several ‘sects’ in the society.
“It is no exaggeration that Nigerians have never, in recent times, been this divided. What Nigerians have experienced in the last three years of the Buhari/Osinbajo administration is the height of ethnic and religious divisions laced with diatribes capable of splitting the nation.”
Meanwhile, a member of the APC in the South-East who is also the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu, has advised the PDP to mind its business and face its manifesto, which according to him, is dead on arrival.
“But in the spirit of equity, natural justice and good conscience, the South-East having been the only geopolitical zone in the South which has not become the President should get it. It does not mean hawking because another zone in the South is positioning itself for the Presidency.
Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission and a former Senate Majority Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, has said it will be counterproductive for the South-East to vote for the opposition in 2019.
