Senator Rochas Okorocha (APC – Imo West) says the South-East geopolitical zone should produce the President of Nigeria in 2023.
He said the presidency was like a competition, with teams taking turns to win.
The former Imo State governor said that since the South-West, South-South and North-West have produced the president since 1999, it was only fitting for the South-East to get its turn.
Okorocha spoke at the Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport, Bauchi on Saturday.
“The issue of Nigeria president of Igbo extraction for me is more like a competition. The North has produced a president, the South West has produced a president and the South-South has produced a president; let us see when the South East produces a president, what Nigeria will look like.
“I think from that Chelsea, Manchester United match kind of thing, when they belong to the same country and when they play a match, that’s exactly the way I see it, but it’s only fair, fairness calls for that.
“Talking about the presidency of Igbo extraction, it will give everyone a sense of belonging and if everyone gets a sense of belonging, there is justice,” Okorocha stated.
