Adebanjo, Clark, Govs Meet In Abuja Monday Over S’East Presidency

Leader of the Afenifere sociopolitical group, Pa Ayo Adebanjo and leader of the Southern and Middle Belt Forum, Pa Edwin Clark, will attend the Greater Nigeria Conference on Monday in Abuja to deliberate on emergence of the next Nigeria President from the South East.

The GNC is a pan Nigeria dialogue organised by a global Igbo think tank, Nzuko Umunna, to canvass support for a presidential candidate from the region during the 2023 general elections.

The GNC in a statement by its Media Coordinator, Collins Ugwu, said South East governors and presidential aspirants from the region would also attend the event.

It said more patriotic Nigerians were interested in championing the truth to foster equality, justice and fairness in Nigeria.

Aside from the nationalist patriots expected in Abuja from all over the country, are also our governors from the Southeast region, who will play central roles to the big idea of a Nigerian President from the Southeast persuasion project.

It is already heartwarming and a sign of great awareness what one of them, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, declared passionately that Ndigbo have cried enough on their marginalization, and Nigerians should grant the region a fair playing ground come 2023 general elections for the presidency,” the statement read in part.

It futher quoted Uzodinma as saying that Ndigbo are zealous, patriotic and committed to the oneness of Nigeria, adding that the region demanded a level playing field for all to operate and compete.

The statement added, “Most of the patriots who engineered the plan that made the Southwest region produce the presidential candidates for the two major political parties in 1999 are still alive and active in Nigerian politics. That same underlying love for the country that inspired them to do what they did for the Southwest in 1999, should inspire them to do the same for the Southeast in 2023.”
