2023: Northern Elders Task APC, PDP To Zone Presidential Tickets To South East by valentineuwakwe(m): 12:54pm On Nov 22
Northern elders have expressed support for Igbo presidency in 2023 and tasked the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party to zone its presidential tickets to the South East.

The elders say their demand follows the need for all regions of the country to be treated equally in the political affairs of the nation.

In a statement by its National Coordinator, Engr. Zana Goni and the National Women Leader, Hajia Mario Bichi, the Coalition of Northern Elders for Peace and Development affirmed that Igbos have been marginalized in the political scheme of things in the country.

It, however, appealed to the APC and the PDP to feature candidates of southeast extraction in 2023 to maintain the culture of rotational presidency between the North and South, which it claimed has doused political tension in Nigeria in the past.

The group promised to support Igbos tand tasked other zones in the country to do same following their long quest to produce a president.

‘‘Buhari is from the North, the right thing is that after his eight-year tenure, the next president should come from Southern Nigeria and since South West and South-South have occupied the office in the current dispensation, the South East is next in line in the spirit of the rotation principle, fairness, equity and justice.”

The elders said the move will foster national unity and bring an end to the bitterness of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, which has lingered for 50 years since the end of hostilities.

The Northern Elders lauded South East leaders for not taking cessation as an option despite the activities of Nnamdi Kanu, the self-proclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, which it accused of attempting to destabilize Nigeria’s unity by hiding under the delayed Igbo presidency.

“If all the major geopolitical zones in the country and especially the major ethnic groups in the country have all been presidents then in all fairness, justice and equity, we should be looking at the South East to produce the president.

“There is no denying the fact that the Igbos have contributed greatly to the development of this country. It is time for us all to reciprocate their good gestures through mass support for the next president to emerge from the South East. This is the time for it, the statement further said.

‘‘We are asking for a Nigerian President of South-East extraction. We are not asking Nigeria for “Igbo President because that will amount to asking Nigeria to possibly alter geo-political-zones-based rotation arrangement for Presidency in Nigeria”.

The elders further tasked Ohanaeze Ndigbo to reach out to great Igbo politicians and leaders of other geo-political zones and interest groups for support for a South-East president, noting that the creation of six geopolitical zones was to help streamline the way the country was structured.

“The Northern elders desire to stand on this zoning arrangement to make a point on 2023 Presidency that is of grave importance to South-East geo-political zone in particular and Nigeria in general,” they said.

Pls, presidential ticket of which country?

If Pdp zones its ticket to the SE, perfect.

But APC? In which obodo?

You can't harvest where you didn't sow bro.

APC ticket goes straight to the SW and direct into Tinubu's pocket. He then decides either to fly it himself or choose who to fly it.

These are the real patriotic Nigerians. Nothing fosters unity more than equity, justice and fairness. Igbos have always believed in Nigeria and they put their money where their belief is by investing all over the country.

Once they're supported by other Nigerians to rule the country, it will enhance stability and progress.

FIrst grade level: Prof. Kingsley Muoghalu, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, Dr Ngozi Iweala, Engr. Sir Chris Okoye, Festus Odimegwu, OfoIgbo Each of these individuals will make the best president Nigeria ever had

Second grade level: Peter Obi, Dave Umahi, Willie Obiano, Chris Ngige. These individuals will be better than Buhari. They will match Goodluck Jonathan

Third grade level: Rochas Okorocha, Orji Uzor Kalu, Gov Ikpeazu, Mbadinuju These individuals will be at the same level as Buhari, and must never be considered, else Nigeria goes to the dogs
