Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, a former Senate Minority Leader and senator from the Abia South senatorial district, has refuted claims that the Igbo people do not have the same kind of interregional coordination that other groups do to produce the president.

He stated that Igbos didn’t choose Obi because he is Igbo, but rather because they believed he was the greatest candidate to address our country’s economic problems.
He said, “Igbos don’t love themselves but what happened during the last election? Peter Obi took all the votes in Igboland.

Because Igbos saw him as the best person to run our economy at this point that we need a sane, sober, very meticulous and prudent person to run the government.”
When asked: Maybe they voted him because he was an Igbo man?
