It is time other regions support South-East for the presidency - Sen Nwogu
Senator Nkechi Nwogu has appealed to other regions of the country to support the South-East in producing the next President in 2023.
Sen. Nwogu who is a strong believer in a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction said it is time the Igbos was treated like any other part of the country in terms of having a shot at the apex governance of the country.
Speaking at her country home Umuocheala Mbutuoma, Osisioma Ngwa in Abia State while revalidating her membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nwogu said that by the virtue of the help rendered by Igbos to other regions in having a taste of the Presidential seat, there was no reason the other zones would have not to support the South East come 2023.
“It is about time the Igbo are treated like any other part of the country in terms of having a shot at the apex governance of the country.
“The Igbo have assisted the South West in 1999, North West in 2007 and the South South in 2009 to produce the president of the country and I don’t think there is any reason the other zones would have not to support the South East come 2023 to produce the president”.
On the security situation of the country, Sen. Nwogu called on all irrespective of political leaning to support President Muhammadu Buhari in the fight against banditry across the nation.
“When the bandits strike, they do not do that based on the political party one belongs and that is why all should join hands in fighting it”.
