A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as Naturecracy for Atiku/Peter Obi Support Movement (NAPSUM) has observed that the political momentum being generated by the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate Mr Peter Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State ahead of the 2019 general election in Nigeria is unstoppable.
Founder and President of NAPSUM Chief Chinedu Nsofor who spoke during the inauguration of the Southeast zonal Executives of the NAPSUM, expressed the optimism that considering the massive support being accorded to Atiku and Obi from the masses across the country who no doubt form the larger chunk of the electorates, the victory of the PDP at the polls in 2019 is sure.
Asked to comment on the alleged gang up against Peter Obi by some leaders of PDP in the Southeast, Nsofor said that such gang up is normal because of selfish interest among the political elites, but those involved won’t succeed as according to him, the elites who are on the side of minority cannot scuttle the wish of the masses who are the majority and who have found Atiku and a Obi as the team they have been looking for.
While inaugurating the Southeast Executives who will run the affairs of NAPSUM in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States, the President urged them to enhance the movement with massive mobilisation of members from the local government to the Ward levels to ensure that the target of NAPSUM to mobilise 10million votes for Atiku and Obi in 2019 is achieved.
In response, the Anambra State coordinator, Chief Peter Okala who doubles as national program coordinator gave the update on the activities of the movement and said that the NGO will also lend support to other candidates of the PDP at the polls next year adding that NAPSUM has already identified its movement with the national headquarters of Atiku campaign.
Also speaking, the Abia State coordinator Engr. Christopher Chigbu commended the organisers of the NGO for their commitment to the cause of the PDP in particular and Nigeria in general assuring that Abia State NAPSUM won’t lag behind in the movement hence it is targeted at bring about a team of PDP in the persons of Atiku and Obi to take over the affairs of the nation at Aso Rock.
