2023 PRESIDENCY Let’s end civil war, Igbo must be next president – Doyin Okupe

Doyin Okupe, a former aide to ex-Presidents, Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, has written to the National Chairmen of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over zoning of their presidential tickets.

In a letter he entitled, ‘2023: Igbo presidency as a national imperative’, addressed to APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Senator Iyorchia Ayu of the PDP, Doyin Okupe explained how the death of Moshood Abiola and Sani Abacha led to the issue of zoning in the country.

With the likes of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Bukola Saraki and other northerners battling for the PDP’s presidential ticket, Okupe said it would be unjust for another northerner to climb the seat after President Buhari, insisting that power must come to the South.

He maintained that any argument against power shift to the South was inimical to the unity and stability of the country, arguing further that once the tickets are zoned to the South, the next president must come from the South East

In his letter, the former presidential aide argued that in the South, the South East is the only region yet to produce a civilian president for the country.

Fellow Nigerians, let us come together as a fair and just nation that we are. Let us concession the presidency to the Southeast in 2023 and decisively end the Nigerian Civil War forever,” Okupe said in the letter he shared on Twitter.

The fact of Igbo marginalization & political oppression is self-evident. Political parties will in a few weeks elect their presidential flagbearers

It is equitable that once the above stands and power is conceded to the south, the next president must come from the South East

In the South, only the southeast is yet to produce a civilian president. Fellow Nigerians, let us come together as a fair and just nation that we are.

Let us concession the presidency to the Southeast in 2023 and decisively end the Nigerian Civil War forever.”
