The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has urged the Southern Governors Forum to zone the 2023 presidency to the South-East.
VANTAGE NEWS reported that the governors had in a communique after a meeting held at the Lagos State government House, demanded that 2023 presidency be zoned to the South.
Reacting, the spokesman for Ohanaeze, Alex Ogbonnia, while applauding the governors, asked that the presidency be zoned to the South-East.
Ogbonnia said, “The truth is that there have been a gentleman agreement between rotation or alternation of the Presidency between the North and the South.
“However, in commending the southern governors for that resolution, Ohanaeze is urging them to be magnanimous in conceding to South-East the Presidency. The South-West had a shot the South-South had a shot; and in each occasion the Igbo gave them total support.
“So justice, equity and fairness will demand that they concede the Presidency to the South-East. So in thanking them, we are going step ahead to urge them to consider the South East to have a shot at the Presidency.”
