The statement reads: “We are informed that PDP had perfected plans to deny the South-East the Vice Presidential slot to South-West after the primaries.
“We see this plot as wickedness and political treachery against Ndigbo, who had paid dearly for the survival of PDP since 1999, and warn the leadership of PDP that it shouldn’t toil with the people of South-East as regards the Vice Presidential slot or prepare to lose the votes of Igbo Youths in the 2019 presidential election.
“Igbo youths will only vote PDP in other election such as gubernatorial and Senatorial elections in Abia, Ebonyi and Enugu but will wait to sink PDP in the Presidential election if they deny South-East Vice President position after their primaries.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide and her affiliated groups reaffirmed that any of the South-East Governors or Mr. Peter Obi are eminently qualified for the post of Vice President, and will attract Igbo Youths votes in 36 States of the federation.
“PDP will have themselves to blame if they deny South-East the Vice Presidential slot as South-West will not vote for PDP with Tinubu and Osibanjo holding the South-West, the only hope for PDP is to field Mr. Peter Obi or any South-East Governor as Vice President to win 2019.”
