Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former Governor of Anambra State, has said that the people of the Southeast will “go on their knees to beg other zones,” ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Ezeife said the Southeast will beg other zones if it becomes the condition to actualise their ambition to produce the next president of Nigeria in 2023, NAN reports.
Speaking on Monday in Awka during the launch of the Global Movement for President of Igbo extraction in 2023, the former governor also urged people like Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, should jettison their presidential ambition.
The former governor regretted that the southeast remained the only zone to produce a president since the return of democratic rule in Nigeria.
He appealed to other geopolitical zones to support the clamor for a president from the southeast in 2023 for fairness, equity, and justice.
“We are using this medium to call on people like Alhaji Bola Tinubu and others from the north nursing the presidential ambition to have a rethink,” Ezeife said.
