Former governor of Anambra state Chukwuemeka Ezeife has called on Nigerians to ensure they vote for either Peter Obi or Bola Tinubu ahead of the presidential elections.
According to The Sun newspaper, Ezeife said that a southerner should be given the opportunity rather than vote for Rabiu Kwankwaso of the NNPP and Atiku Abubakar.
He said: “The truth must be told. Only southern candidates are qualified by the decision of Nigerians to contest. We have Tinubu and Peter Obi. The choice is between Tinubu and Peter Obi.”

The elder statesman further stated that the citizens should not encourage “bullion van politics” but vote for a candidate with competence.
Ezeife added: “We want a system that works. We want Nigeria to work from now henceforth. Bullion Van Politics, Enough is enough. We don’t want Bullion Van Politics, which enables politicians to buy votes and do what they like for the next four years.
“I’ve been saying that people should take money from politicians because it’s their money stolen from them. Bullion Van Politics being PDP and APC must come to end.
“Today, any northern politician who says he wants to be president doesn’t want Nigeria to survive.”
