A former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu has said a lack of support from other geo-political zones is the major reason Igbo people may not become president come 2023.

The Chief Whip of the 9th Senate stated this in a statement he personally signed on Tuesday.

Noting that other regions in the South had produced a president and a Vice since 1999, Kalu called on the two major political parties in the country, the All Progressives Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to zone their tickets to the Southeast for equity and fairness.

According to him: “The situation in Nigeria is that without the support of other regions, it would amount to a shadow chase for a South Easterner to be President, he said.

“This is the reason I have been in the frontline of the call that the two major political parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zone their presidential tickets to the South East as they did for the South West in 1999.

“In the absence of this zoning, I shall return to the Senate and stay away from the presidential contest. The reality is that the North is more advantageous to win elections in this democratic setting”
