President Muhammadu Buhari should hand over to candidate from the Southeast in 2023, the Ohanaeze Youths said on Thursday, July 30.
According to the group, 2023 is the turn of the southeast people to produce president.

This was disclosed by President of Ohaneze Ndigbo in Anambra state, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has elected new leaders ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The CUPP took the decision on Monday, July 27 after a virtual emergency meeting involving all key stakeholders of Nigerian opposition parties.
Legit.ng findings indicated that repeated calls by stakeholders for a general assembly of all members and stakeholders of the CUPP prompted the meeting.
In a communique issued at the end of the meeting and sent to journalists, the CUPP resolved to provide a credible opposition movement for the country ahead of the 2023 polls.
The resolution of the meeting states: “That the steering committee immediately hold a meeting to address the socio-economic situation in the country;
“That Nigeria undoubtedly is in dire need of an opposition movement and to this end, the CUPP be repositioned from a combatant opposition to an opposition that is purposeful, result-oriented, focused, demand-driven and providing alternative views to correct what is wrong with government in Nigeria - opposing policies that are not good for our country;
“That CUPP general assembly meetings be as regular as once a month.”
Legit.ng had also reported that the registration certificate of Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), and other socio-cultural groups in the country have been withdrawn by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).
Garba Abubakar, the registrar general of CAC, revealed this over the weekend in Abuja.
Abubakar went on to note that the measure was taken as part of the commission's reforms that are being put in place to subject applications from groups to thorough scrutiny due to security threats.
The registrar-general also added that CAC's reforms were put together to sanitize the commission's operations which lead to the withdrawal of the certificate issued to Ohaneze earlier, adding that it should never have been issued.
