Ababribe said: "Mr Obi’s widely acknowledged good track record in infrastructural development and economic reforms as governor of Anambra State remains an eloquent testimony of what service delivery and good governance is all about.
“The ticket of the duo of former vice president Atiku Abubakar and Mr Obi represents the finest choice available and one that reflects the high-pitch push by Nigerians for total economic and political reforms.

“The present hopeless situation of fear, despondency and hunger in the land, which is occasioned by a seemingly rudderless and clueless government, requires experienced and steady hands in the saddle. Of course, the Atiku/Obi ticket presents that radical choice capable of pulling the country out of her present horrendous predicament," the Senator added.

The deputy senate president at a meeting with southeast political leaders, comprising the zone’s PDP governors, national assembly caucus, board of trustee members and other party leaders convinced the group not to reject Obi’s nomination.
