The former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has warned the All Progressives Congress, APC, on the dangers of not zoning its presidency to the Southern part of Nigeria.
The lawmaker warned that ruling party would be divided if they fails to zone its presidential candidate to the south.
Rochas disclosed this at an event organized by the Abuja council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ.
The imo State senator said the Northern part has produced a President, hence it’s only logical and sensible for the APC to allow the South in 2023.
Okorocha’s statement reads: “There’s no justification for APC zoning the Presidency away from the South. If zoned to the North, it will polarise the party.
“When I took the All Progressives Grand Alliance to the APC for the South-East to be in mainstream politics, I was called many names.
“We should develop national spirit, high spiritual elevation above personal convictions. It protects the indigent and weak in the society.
“I see positive and new things to come in Nigeria with such spirit. I agree with Southern Governors on the Southern Presidency.
