In what appeares to be a direct attack on die-hard supporters of the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, a former Deputy Speaker ,House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha has said that Presidency can only come to the Southeast after Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s tenure .
The former governor of Imo State who said this in trending video argued that Nigeria cannot afford to make mistakes in the 2023 election and that there are two parties in the election, the PDP and the All Progressives Congress.
He opined that Nigeria’s presidency will rotate to the South-East, after the administration of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, if he wins next year’s election.
He said, “Let me tell you, after Atiku Abubakar, the next president of Nigeria will come from the South-East of Nigeria. That is the gospel in Accra. You must win in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Gombe, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa etc to become the president of Nigeria.
“There is what we call passion and there’s what we call emotion. They are two different things for people who went to school like me. Emotions don’t win elections. You must be realistic to win elections. You must plan to win election and that is where I belong. I want to tell you, I have the key to the direction of where Ibo should go.”
