A member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Board of Trustees, in Anambra State, Ralph Okeke has reacted to the statements credited to National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu and the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo that presidency will return to the South West in 2023.
Okeke said the comment credited to both Tinubu and the Vice President were mere political wishes.
Speaking in Onitsha area of the state on Saturday, Okeke insisted that it will be the turn of the South-East to produce the next president after Buhari’s second tenure.
He said: “The desire to have the presidency is the earnest wish of every zone in the federation. However, that does not imply that the APC as a party does not know the right thing.
“The statements credited to Tinubu and vice president were political wishes and strategy and they have the rights to that.
“As a matter of fact, they were being good leaders fighting for their people the Yoruba race and bringing them together under the APC.
“Every Nigerian, including President Buhari knows that it is the turn of the Igbo to produce the next President of Nigeria.
“All we need to do is to put our house in order and vote for the re-election of president Buhari come February 16, and nobody would have the moral ground to raise any contrary argument.
“Power is not given on a platter; you must show capacity by fighting for and winning it.”
