Chairman of the Special Presidential Panel on Recovery of Public Asset, Chief. Okoi Obono-obla has urged the entire South South region to vote massively for the All Progressives Congress, APC in the forthcoming governorship and state assembly election to get tangible benefits from the government at the centre.

Obono-obla in a brief statement sent to Fearless Reports said that by voting against the APC in the governorship election would mean that the region would be isolated from the national mainstream politics as well as be in opposition to the Federal Government which is led by the APC.

While noting that having a healthy relationship with the Federal Government would bring tangible benefits to the region, he added that the South South stand a better chance of producing a President in APC than PDP.

The APC Chieftain who is also President Muhammadu Buhari Special Assistant on Prosecution advised the people not to follow the PDP Governors whom he said are pursuing only their selfish interest without looking at the bigger picture.

The South South rejoin is regarded as one of the strongholds of the PDP. In the February 23rd Presidential and national assembly elections, the PDP won all the six states in the region in the Presidential election as well as more national assembly seats.

Obono-obla has however maintained that "Those of us from Akwa Ibom and Cross River States and indeed other South South State must endeavor to vote APC Governors come 9 March 2019 so that we are not isolated from national mainstream politics or alienated from the Centre!

"We cannot afford to remain insulated from national political mainstream or remain in opposition to the Centre ( Federal Government ). Let us manifest the pragmatism that the old generation is shown in 1979 when they aligned with the old National Party of Nigeria!

Being in the national political mainstream and friendly towards the Federal Government will surely bring a lot of tangible and intangible benefits to the people of the South South Region! If we miss this opportunity we may remain in opposition for a long time and also lose the chance of having a shot at the presidency!

We should not follow our PDP governors who for selfish consideration want to vote them under PDP! Let us look at the big picture"!
