‘When I came here few months ago to attend a zonal conference of the South-East, I said to the Igbos I am going to be the Stepping stone to the Igbo presidency. And I mean it, whether an Igboman is from the South-East or South-South, it is the same race and today my running make is an Igbo man. It is a universal ethnic group, it is a universal race.

‘So, my fellow brothers and sisters, the people of Enugu State, I want you to continue believing and I want you to continue supporting the PDP because PDP is Enugu and Enugu is PDP. I want to let you know that this country is geared towards electing a PDP government, do not be an exception, and do not be a minority. The next government is going to be formed by the PDP. Therefore as you have always been, be in the mainstream of Nigerian politics because that is the only way that can bring about the prosperity, economic development, the peace and the security you are looking for in this part of the country and the country in general.

‘So we want to thank you very much indeed for turning up in great numbers to attend this rally and we promise you, Enugu State will continue to receive the required attention it has always received.’

The rally however held with the absence of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and Senator Chimaroke Nnamani who was recently expelled from the party.
