Opinion: Why APC And PDP Will Not Give Its Presidential Tickets To South East In 2023

The South East geo-political zone is on the verge of losing out in the political calculus of 2023 if there is anything to go by with ongoing political development in the country.

This was disclosed in a statement in Owerri by a party, South East Vanguard For Good Governance signed by its Founder, Fred Okenwa, and John Okolisa, the Secretary.

The Group said the two driving ideological Party in the nation, the All Progressive Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, won't hand an Igbo its presidential tickets in the 2023 presidential political race. 

The Group expressed this suggests the odds of an Igbo delivering Nigeria's President will be a delusion in 2023, as the two significant ideological groups in the nation will zone its presidential passes toward the North and South West separately. 

"The APC has demonstrated unmistakably that it won't permit an Igbo to fly its Presidential ticket in 2023. The continuous fight in the Party is around 2023 and Igbos are not in dispute. "It is obviously evident that South East have no stake in the APC. The presidential ticket of the APC will dangle between the South West and the North. 

"As of now, Bola Tinubu, has not concealed his longing to challenge for the presidential ticket of the Party utilizing the APC stage and all estimations highlight the way that he is all around established in the Party Which Igbo man is grounded in the APC, to challenge Tinubu for the Party's presidential ticket at the most critical moment? 

"The APC isn't grounded in the South East dissimilar to in the South West where the whole zone is in the grasp of the APC. As of now, the chances are against the South East in the decision party. We have never decided in favor of the brush party since 2015.So, how might they surrender its Presidential pass to a zone which never decided in favor of it in the last two general races. 

The Forum further expressed that the PDP won't zone its Presidential pass toward the South East geo political zone. 

Some portion of the announcement peruses "There are more clear signs that previous Vice President Atiku Abubakar, may pick the PDP presidential ticket again in 2023. 

"In the event that this occurs, where does this leave the South East zone. Not surprisingly, we will play the supportive role by either delivering a running mate to one of the presidential competitors, conceivably the PDP. On the off chance that the Presidential ticket of the APC goes toward the South West, unquestionably the South East can't deliver a running mate" the gathering expressed
