“The PDP has to worry more about the Southeast than we do. First of all, traditionally, the stronghold of the PDP has been the Southeast. Not so anymore.
"We have two exceptional governors there in Imo State and Ebonyi State who are doing very well and have built a broad base of support there."

APC have major states in the southeast in its pocket

Noting that the APC have support from key states in the region, Fani-Kayode said most Igbo leaders are not happy with Obi either.

He added:

“I can cite honourable men like Ugwuanyi, Ikpeazu, and a number of others. Right now, we have four or five states in the South-East. Soludo is also not too happy with PDP or even Peter Obi. So, it’s very clear that we are going to do well.
