The All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman in Anambra State, Fief Ejidike, has said Igbos can produce the next President after Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Speaking when a former Police DIG, Celestine Okoye, joined the party at his polling unit in Awka., on Thursday, Ejidike said Igbo will get the presidency if the people of South-East moved into the APC en masse.
“APC has done so much for the South-East and Anambra in areas of infrastructure, the South-East has never had it like this”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“The only way we can get more is to join the mainstream and 2023 will be a sure bet for South-East to produce the next president.”
He assured that the party would provide equal opportunity to every member in the state.
Meanwhile, a political advocacy group, Tinubu Support Organisation, has revealed that former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, should be Nigeria’s next president because of the track records in politics.
The group made this known at a news conference in Lagos on Thursday. According to the group’s president of the Central Women Wing, Fatima Bello, said the All Progressives Congress national leader had a good vision for the country, particularly the womenfolk.
She said, “While most people are aware of Tinubu’s qualities, few are aware of his love for gender equality and equity.
“This is one of the values that has endeared him to us in women circles. A lot of women are suffering out there. We are pushing for Tinubu because we believe he has so much passion for women. Tinubu answers women first. He cannot even stand to see a woman cry.”
