Somr monarchs in Anambra State have reportedly declared their interest in supporting the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

The said traditional rulers, all from the Idemili North and South local government areas of Anambra, however, shunned their former state governor, Peter Obi of the Labour Party to support the candidate of the PDP.

Stating their reason for backing Atiku, the monarchs said the Wazirin Adamawa and his running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, are getting their full support because of their support received from a chieftain of the PDP in Anambra, Prof Obiora Okonkwo.

According to Naija News, the traditional rulers present were from the 17 communities that make up Idemili North and South.

In his remark at a meeting held in Ogidi, the headquarters of the Idemili North Local Government Area on Saturday, the Chairman, of Idemili North and South Traditional Rulers Council, Igwe C. C. Agbala, said the support for the PDP was in the interest of the Igbo.

Agbala said, “We can no longer continue in opposition as a region; we have endured enough and must get our region back to national politics. You have our unalloyed support and blessings. With you, we are comfortable supporting (an) Atiku Abubakar’s presidency, knowing that you have a record of always standing in the line of progress, development, and stability.”

While addressing the monarchs, Okonkwo assured them that Atiku would restructure Nigeria if elected President in 2023.

The indecisiveness of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to declare his position ahead of the 2023 general elections had stirred a tense atmosphere in the political space of the state.

Supporters and members of the PDP in Rivers State in the camp of Governor Wike are yet to know the presidential candidate to support in 2023.

As Governor Wike is yet to state his position, his supporters don’t know if they should vote for PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku or any other presidential candidate.
