Within Southern Nigeria, Southwest and South-south geopolitical zones have all produced the president of the country, this is why Ohanaeze wants the 2023 presidency to be ceded to the southeast in the interest of fair play and justice.
Fair treatment and proper integration of southeast in the affairs of the country
Another strategy used in the fight for the Igbo presidency is the call for fair treatment and proper integration of the southeast in the affairs of the country.
A report by Tribune Newspaper revealed that the Southeast Governors recently called for fair treatment and proper integration of the southeast in the affairs of the country to allow the zone to produce the next president.

The Chairman of the Southeast Governors' Forum had explained that the Southeast should be treated fairly and properly integrated into the affairs of the country for them to produce the next President of Nigeria.
These strategies may likely convince political parties to produce their presidential candidates from southeast for the Igbos to produce the president of the country for the first time after the return of democracy in 1999.
