The All Progressives Congress has spoken on the possibility of the Igbo Presidential candidate emerging in 2023.
The deputy spokesman of the party, Yekini Nabena, noted that the next presidential candidate of the party will be based on agreement by stakeholders.
Nabena while speaking with the Sun, also revealed steps to follow by politicians in the South-East region to emerge in 2023.
He said, “We know that there are six geographical zones in the country. But what is going to be the major determinant is the agreement by stakeholders. The unity of the country is more important than any zoning arrangement.”
“Every zone will be involved in the stakeholders’ meeting. But I want to, however, urge the Igbos to know that getting political positions involves lots of negotiations and lobbying, not by whipping up sentiments or by force.”
“The Igbo must discover their allies and go into deep negotiations. They must begin to wake up to the reality that politics is by number. We have seen what Igbo could only do with a political party we can say is truly their own, APGA. How many states did APGA win in the Southeast? What it means is that they cannot get it right with their own political party.”
