Na’Abba endorses South-East’s bid to produce President in 2023
A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’Abba, has endorsed the South-East’s bid to produce the President of the country in 2023.
Speaking on Tuesday when the National Political Equity Movement (NPEM), led by its convener, Chibuzor Okereke, paid him a working visit, Na’Abba said the zone should select their best and present them for selection in the 2023 presidential race.
Na’Abba noted that the South-East has enough competent people that can effectively run the affairs of the country.
He said, “Some of my friends from the South-East geopolitical zone are well endowed and readily available anytime.
“In 1999, the Late Alex Ekwueme would have emerged our presidential candidate if not for the strong influence of the military because we believed in him.
“As at today, there is an array of competent Igbo leaders in the mould of Senator Ken Nnamani, Pius Anyim and several others from the South-East that can conveniently run our political affairs.
“If they bring incompetent hands it may spoil their chance in 2023, if they bring good hands I will support the South-East.”
