A former minister of Works, Adeseye Ogunlewe, on Monday assured the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, that the South-West will work towards his emergence as the next president of Nigeria come 2019.
Ogunlewe, a chieftain of the PDP, stated this while commending the former Vice President for promising to give the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, to the South-West geopolitical zone if elected President.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the former minister said PDP leaders in the South-West were satisfied with Atiku’s promise to pick an SGF from the region.
He said, “We thank our presidential candidate for the promised SGF slot. We are very satisfied with it and we are happy about it.
“You see, the office of the SGF is not just another office. It is the fulcrum of any government; it is the engine room. So, for our candidate to have promised the region the office, it means he holds us in high esteem.
“The promise is a just and fair move, we are impressed and we are pledging our total support to Atiku Abubakar to emerge as our president next year.”
