Clan leaders of All Progressives Congress in Ebonyi State have kicked against the situation of the northern lead representatives over power shift toward the south, in 2023.
In independent meetings in Abakaliki, on Sunday, they said the north had no defense, for not moving a southerner to become president in 2023.
South-East Coordinator of the APC Youth League, Okenwa Uka, said despite the fact that the rotational administration was not revered in the constitution, the matter on the ground, was an issue of soul.
As indicated by him, “Despite the fact that there is no arrangement in the constitution for rotational of force in the nation, what we are discussing is an issue of still, small voice. Any zone or part of the country that wants it ought to need to haggle for it with different zones.
“There is this inclination inside the south, that individuals have not been genuinely treated and isn’t as though we don’t have individuals who are able to be the president.
Uka proceeded, “Thus despite the fact that force is arranged, the south ought to be permitted to go after the Presidency right now. The President of Nigeria is the leader of all pieces of Nigeria and not a specific piece of the country. I’m of the assessment that our Governors should keep on arranging.
“It ought not be a conflict like circumstance. I’m of the view that discretion and exchange ought to be sent in attempting to accomplish this fantasy for the South.”
The Majority Leader, Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Hon Victor Chukwu, saw that the country’s popular government was an incipient one, adding the initiative didn’t have to allude to the constitution to address each public.
He said, “The northern lead representatives have said the situation of their southern partners is illegal and that is their viewpoint on this. In any case, I am saying that a country with an early popular government like Nigeria, ought not generally depend on the constitution to settling some public issues.
“You can’t examine security and you can’t talk about solidarity in disconnection from value, reasonableness and equity. What breeds weakness is unexpressed or implicit complaints and outrage. Where individuals are insulted and bossed to a corner, you start to see instability and shootings what not.
“I don’t have the foggiest idea what has shaped this position being kept up with by the Northern lead representatives. Indeed, vote based system is a round of numbers. However, sound judgment should let them know that past the number you have, there is a requirement for you to be nationalistic and sober minded.
Chukwu proceeded, “What might they (Northern lead representatives) say is their avocation for plotting to deny the South (particularly the South-East zone) the country’s Presidency, come 2023? What is their support? Is it that they don’t have skilled individuals for sure?
“Utilizing the guideline of reasonableness, value and equity, there isn’t anything the North would present as legitimization for not supporting a Southerner become President, come 2023.”
