The group in a motion moved by a former member of the Anambra State House of Assembly for Orumba North Local Government Area, Bar Okonkwo Okom and supported by a member of the Federal Character Commission, Rev Dr Uche Ibeabuchi urged Ngige to join the 2023 presidential race.

Daily Trust reports that Ngige, however, said he is mindful of the demands of his party members and is well aware that he is qualified to contest for the presidency in 2023.

He also said that by every political calculation, the southeast deserves the opportunity to produce the next president of Nigeria.

The minister said the zone cannot achieve this alone without the support of other geopolitical zones.

He, however, appealed to the members of the APC to allow him until Easter of 2022 to respond to their demand as he is yet to consult with his family members, political associates and other stakeholders.

The Guardian reports that Okom had said that Ngige having served as a governor and a minister is qualified to be president.

Okom added that Ngige's performance as a governor in Anambra state has remained evergreen in the memory of the Anambra people.

He said:

“He, as a senator that represented Anambra central senatorial district, delivered effective representation and ensured that the seven local government areas that made up the zone are connected to the centre through constituency projects and attracted government presence."

Adeboye Speaks on Who Will Be Nigeria’s Next President in 2023

The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has given an answer to questions of who the next Nigerian president would be.

The RCCG general overseer said he does not have the answer as God is yet to reveal the next president of Nigeria to him.

Warning against fake prophecies, the cleric said when God speaks, He is specific and there are no maybes.

Adeboye's prophesies for 2022

Legit.ng earlier reported that during the Crossover Service of the RCCG in the early hours of Saturday, January 1, Adeboye told his congregants this year has good things in store for the people.

The cleric however maintained that he will not speak more about Nigeria and just gave a short parable.

He also predicted that on the global stage, two monstrous storms are coming and the results will be devasting if they are not weakened.
