His words:

“There is clamour for Igbo presidency today. And I believe it can only be realised if we engage ourselves in conversation with northern Nigeria to buy into our initiative.”

Meanwhile, the minister of works and housing, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, has advised the leadership of the APC to respect and honour the agreement reached at the formative stage of the party for zoning to take place.

Fashola made the comment while chatting with selected journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, November 24, adding that there was an agreement on zoning which he said should be honoured.

In a related development, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise will commence in the first quarter of 2021 ahead of the 2023 general elections.
