Osita Chidoka, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it will be unwise for South-East geo-political to leave the party they have supported since 1999.

According to the former Minister of Aviation, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party who is also from the zone will disrupt the dominance of the South East.

Chidioka made the comment when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme.

“The Igbo position for me is that our significant investment in the PDP for 24 years cannot be thrown away overnight. I remain in the PDP, and many Igbos remain in the PDP,” Chidoka said.

He added that advocates of an Igbo presidency outside the PDP are not wrong, but maintained that the main opposition party is the shortest route for the Igbos to clinch the presidency.
