As the issue of the region which should succeed President Muhammadu Buhari's northern's incumbency in 2023 continues to dominate the media space and the country's political discussions, elders and major stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have insisted that it is the turn of the southeast to produce next president of Nigeria.

This was disclosed recently by former Nigerian Ambassador to Greece, Frank Ogbuewu, in a news conference in Abuja.

He disclosed this while reacting to the defection of Governor Dave Umahi who claimed he defected because the PDP is not willing to zone 2023 presidency slot to the southeast region.

However, Ogbuewu noted that the southeast zone of the PDP had not met to have any discussion or even strategise on how the zoning of the presidency to the southeast come 2023 will be actualised.

He said:

“We affirm our belief that it is the turn of South East to produce the next president of Nigeria.
“We, however, note that at no time has the South East zone of the PDP met to discuss or resolve on the strategies to actualise the zoning of the presidency to South East come 2023."

Legit.ng also reported that following the agitations by some geo-political zones to produce the next president of Nigeria, the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, revealed the qualities of who would become President Muhammadu Buhari's successor.

The governor said the All Progressives Congress (APC) would produce a president in 2023 that would unify the country.

In another report, the president of Nigeria Presidential Project (NPP), Walter Oji, disclosed that about 46 professors across ethnic groups in Nigeria are working towards the actualisation of the Igbo presidency in 2023.

Oji made this disclosure during the inauguration of NPP in Akwa, the Anambra state capital on Monday, November 9.

He said four former heads of state and other prominent Nigerians are already joining the advocacy for the southeast to produce the next president.
