A group, South-East for President 2023 Abuja chapter, has called on the Inter-Party Advisory Council of Nigeria, IPAC to support the region’s quest to produce the next President of Nigeria.
The National Coordinator of the group, Ukechukwu Obiora who led the group on a courtesy call to IPAC in Abuja, said it was the turn of the region to produce a presidential candidate.
Obiora said that just like the three major political parties in 1999 conceded the presidency to the South West, South-East should also be considered. He said that such consideration would be in the spirit of fairness, equity and justice, adding that it was in 1963 the region last tested the executive power.
He said that it was not too early to start campaigning for the presidential slot since the other five zones had had it, stating that the South East remained the major partner in the project called Nigeria.
IPAC National President, Peter Ameh, said that Nigeria was
an indivisible entity under God. He called on the group to work with other
political parties to be able to realise its ambition, adding that the Igbo
remained the connected rod that made Nigeria.
