In 2023, being eight straight years of the North holding unto power again, under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, it is expected that power will shift to the South.

“When you come to the South, the South West and South South part of the country have both produced presidents.

“It is, therefore, the turn of the South East to produce the president of this country come 2023 in the interest of equity and fairness.

“These are among other things Senator Nzeribe fought for in his active days in the Senate, and the time has come for its realization. This is non-negotiable.”
