2023 PRESIDENCY: Elder Statesman, Chief Edwin Clark Throws Weight Behind South East

SAHARANEWS – The demand for an Igbo president ahead of the 2023 presidential election has continued to gain prominence with the latest support coming from Nigeria’s nationalist and foremost Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clerk.

This is coming just as the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), last week, declared its full support for Igbo Presidency while also endorsing Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Senate Chief and former Governor of Abia State, for the position.

In an interview on Monday, Chief Clerk, a former unofficial adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, said power should shift to Southeast in 2023 after President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, “Nigeria’s unity demands that North and South should rotate the office of president and after President Buhari serves his eight years, presidency should return to the South and specifically go to the South-East zone in 2023.

“Some people argue that they want people who are intelligent, who have integrity and worthy personality, I dare say that such people are not scarce in Nigeria, whether in North-East, North-West, North-Central, South-West, South-South and South-East.

“So also the Presidency should not remain in the North-West, it should also go to North-Central and North-East, similarly in the South, it should not be South-West, South-South and South-East

“Therefore, anybody who believes in the unity of this country knows its sustenance depends on quality leadership and ability of all sections of the country to aspire to any position in the country.”

Earlier on Sunday, Alhaji Abdulazeez Yari, immediate past governor of Zamfara state and chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF), said the All Progressives Congress (APC) would support a power shift to the South in 2023.
