The Presidency In 2023 Should Go To The South East – Obasanjo.
The former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has urged for a Nigerian from the South East to be elected President in 2023.
On Tuesday, May 10, Obasanjo told members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s Political Action Committee, PAC, who paid him a visit at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, that the South-East should be allowed to produce Nigeria’s President in 2023, insisting that this would ensure peace, justice, fairness, and long-term national development.
He went on to say that the future president of Nigeria should come from the south at the very least.
“The next president of Nigeria must come from the South East. The least acceptable minimum is a president from the Southern part of Nigeria”, Obasanjo was quoted by Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, as saying
The former President informed the delegation that he owed Nigeria integrity, objectivity, and guidance, and praised Ohanaeze Ndigbo for fighting for their rights.
“Federal character, rotation of power and such other measures are meant to help our nation-building process and more sure-footedly, move Nigeria forward. Riding over these measures rudely, shoddily, and roughly cannot augur well for our nation-building process and progress,” he was quoted as saying
