APC, PDP PRESIDENTIAL TICKET: Be Fair, Cede Tickets To South – Clark, Southern

Southern governors, senators and elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, yesterday, insisted that power must shift to the South, next year, to ensure equity, justice and fair play in the country.

The Southern governors urged the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to end the guessing game, tread the path of equity and zone its 2023 presidential ticket to the Southern part of Nigeria.

The governors spoke on a day Southern Senators Forum also declared that rotational presidency is legal and constitutional and that it is the turn of the South to produce the country’s next president.

The governors said the APC should not have difficulty in zoning its presidential ticket to the South because “the leadership of the party ensured that the principle of rotational representation guided its decision at the just-concluded convention. “The party chairmanship position has gone to the North. All other offices have been filled on this understanding.

This is the time the leaders of the party must make a categorical statement, devoid of equivocation, on the pattern of succession,” they said in a statement by Chairman of the Southern Governor’s Forum and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

This is even as Elder Statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, specifically said the APC and other parties should cede their presidential tickets to the South-East, saying former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, retd, should have allowed the Igbo to leave Nigeria in 1967 if they were not to be integrated into the country.

He added that there might be no Nigeria without zoning in response to those urging the APC, and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to throw the presidential race open to all parts of the country.
