The World Igbo Congress (WIC) has endorsed the selection of former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as the Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 Nigerian general elections.

“The World Igbo Congress Board of Directors, the House of Delegates, and the worldwide affiliates congratulate Chief Peter Obi on his selection. His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s Presidential Candidate, couldn’t have made a better choice.

Selection of a running mate is the first test of a presidential candidate. The World Igbo Congress believes that Alhaji Abubakar has passed that test in his selection of Chief Peter Obi,” WIC said in a statement issued on Monday in Texas, United States of America.

“We are confident that Chief Peter Obi will not disappoint, considering his outstanding credentials and the miracle he performed in Anambra State as the Executive Governor for eight years. His excellent records speak for him,” the statement signed by WIC Secretary-General, Dr. Richard O. Nwachukwu, said.

WIC called on “all Diaspora Igbo and Ndi-Igbo worldwide, to rally around the Atiku/Obi ticket and resist the temptation of presenting a semblance of a disunited people for the sake of the future of Ndi-Igbo in Nigeria.”

“The World Igbo Congress wishes this team the success of their dream. Again, congratulations to both Chief Peter Obi and Alhaji Abubakar as they “Atikulate” the way forward,” the statement concluded.
