Rochas Okorocha speaks on what will happen to APC if presidential ticket is not zoned to the South.

The former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has sounded a note of warning to his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, on the danger of not zoning its presidential ticket to the southern part of Nigeria.

The Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District of Imo State gave the warning that APC would be divided if the party failed to pick its presidential candidate from the southern part of the country.

Okorocha made this known at an event organized by the Nigerian Union of Journalists,NUJ, Abuja Council.

The Senator stressed that the North has produced a President. Therefore, it would only be reasonable for the North to give the South the chance in 2023.

His words:"There is no justification for APC zoning the presidency away from the South. If zoned to the North, it will polarize the party. When I took the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA) to the APC for the South-East to be in mainstream politics, I was called many names".

The former Governor therefore advised that we should develop national spirit above personal convictions, as that would protect the indigent and weak in the society.
