“Your aspiration as Igbo people will materialise and be realized. So, give me victory so that your aspiration will be realized. Together, we can achieve these goals if we unite as PDP and fight for power.”
The presidential aspirant stressed that the South-East is his real point adding, “Therefore, nobody can label me anti-East or anti-race”.
Atiku added, “I came with these objectives and if you should be able to give me this opportunity, I believe we will work together to achieve this”.
