Rochas Okorocha, senator from Imo State and former governor, has warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, on the risks of not zoning its presidency to the Southern a part of the nation.
Okorocha warned that APC can be divided if the celebration fails to zone its presidential candidate to the south.
He spoke at an occasion organised by the Abuja council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ.
The former Imo State Governor mentioned the North had produced a President for eight years. Hence, it was solely logical and wise for the APC to permit the South in 2023.
Okorocha mentioned, “There’s no justification for APC zoning the Presidency away from the South. If zoned to the North, it will polarise the party. When I took the All Progressives Grand Alliance to the APC for the South-East to be in mainstream politics, I was called many names.
“We should develop national spirit, high spiritual elevation above personal convictions. It protects the indigent and weak in the society. I see positive and new things to come in Nigeria with such spirit. I agree with Southern Governors on the Southern Presidency.”
