Chukwuemka told Vanguard that “All of us have seen what this country has been turned into and we need a saviour that will rescue us from this bad governance.
“We need a leader that is well experienced about the issue of governance and that does not discriminate. We need a leader that does not practice nepotism.
“We need a leader that believes in equality and does not segregate along ethnic lines; a leader who believes in the collective interest of the different climes that make up a country.
“Because we are tired of this favouritism style of administration, we are calling on Atiku to come and save this country from collapsing.
“This is a move to ensure that the zone is carried along in the wind of positive change coming to Nigerians and also for the zone to speak in one voice.”
