The quest to succeed President Buhari has taken a new turn as people from southeast form powerful coalition
According to the coalition, it is the turn of the region and people from other zones should support them.
Going further, the group said anything less that the number one position is not accepted.
The question in most people’s lips is: Whom succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari? Which region will the successor come from? Will it be from the southwest, southeast, south-south or another northerner like the president?
The question however is not for campaigners from the southeast who believed that the region deserved the presidency and this should be non-negotiable.
To make better their chances, the campaigners formed a coalition to deepen their quests for president from southeast.
The coalition, with the name: “Coalition of South-East Presidency 2023, urged those angling for the office outside the region to queue behind its aspirants.
The Guardian reports that members of the coalition are South-East for Presidency 2023 (SEFORP2023), Igbo National Council (INC), Pan Nigerian Presidency of Igbo Extraction (PANPIEC), Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) and Coalition of all Nigerian Support Groups (CNSG).
They insisted that anything other than the number one position of the country was not acceptable to the zone.
Going further, they urged most political parties to field in candidates from the region, claiming that political power at the highest level in the land had eluded the South-East since the independence of the country.
They equally called on other regions to support them because they have also supported other zones to produce the president.
