Nwankpa also pointed out that the present APC-led federal government had done well to improve the nation’s economy through its people-oriented policies, and degrading the insurgencies in some parts of the North-East zone.

He said: “Nobody is disparaging the person of Atiku. What we are saying is that he does not have the capacity to drive the current Nigeria.

“He does not have the team to drive current Nigeria. He does not have pedigree and history. He does not have the transformative mentality. He does not have the charisma to take Nigeria to the level we are going into.

“This is no longer the period of experimental governance in Nigeria and Abia state in particular. Enough of experimentation, enough of rigmarole.

“We are happy that our main opponent is Atiku Abubakar. And he has chosen a southeasterner. Is for the south-east to choose. The Vice President that might be removed under one year.”
