A Kano based industrialist, Chief Kalu Ogbonnaya, has newed calls for the South-East to produce the next president of the country after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Ogbonnaya, also a philanthropist, said this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Sunday in Kano.
“Everybody knows that the right thing to do is to allow the South East to produce the president in 2023, because it is the only zone in the country that has not tasted it.”
“Olusegun Obasanjo became the president after the return to civil rule in 1999, after Obasanjo, it was Alhaji Umaru Yar Adua and then Goodluck Jonathan, after Jonathan, Buhari came.”
“I think the right thing to do is to give it to the South East after Buhari, I believe it will be an injustice to take it back to the South West after him, when the South East has not tasted it.”
