The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the endorsement of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), by some south-east leaders is an affront to Igbo people.

Abubakar and some PDP leaders met with some south-east were leaders in Enugu on Wednesday.

Ben Nwabueze, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN),who was among those who received Abubakar said he would live to witness the former vice-president become president of Nigeria.

But in a reaction, Lanre Issa-Onilu, spokesman of the APC, said the Igbo people were victims of PDP’s “misrule” and it would be interesting to know what the opposition party has to tell them.

“The APC considers Atiku and his PDP co-travellers as people who have lost any sense of shame,” Issa-Onilu said in a statement.

“The purported endorsement of Atiku and PDP by some leaders of the south-east for the 2019 general election is an affront to the the Igbo people who were frontline victims of the 16 years of the PDP misrule.

“It will be interesting to know what the PDP will be telling the Igbo people during the campaign. The South East people have three and half years of visible progress in terms of massive infrastructure and the thousands of common people who are benefiting from the social programme investments under APC to compare to the PDP’s 16 years of retrogression.

“We in APC are confident that the Igbo won’t be fooled by any group, by whatever name, to sell a thoroughly discredited party like the PDP to the very discerning Igbo people.”
