-O. Adejo

The Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum has released a communique describing the victory of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar at the PDP party primary as a “brazen affront on the people of Southern Nigeria by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)”.

The communique, jointly signed by Senator Bassey Ewa-Henshaw (PANDEF/South-South), Ambassador Okey Emuchay (Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide/South East), Jare Ajayi (Afenifere/South West), Dr Isuwa Dogo (Middle Belt Forum), and the acting coordinator of SMBLF, Ken Robinson, rejected the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and urged all presidential aspirants of Southern extraction to refuse the position of a running mate to any Northern Presidential candidate and to “shun the conceited attitude of individualism and self-confidence, and work collectively to achieve the shared objectives”.
