Lagos – Dr Olapade Agoro, a former presidential candidate and founder of the National Action Council (NAC), has said it is doubtful if the South East will produce the President in 2023 even though a lot of people are canvassing for it.
Speaking in a chat with INDEPENDENT, Agoro said Igbos will have to work for the presidency as nobody will donate power to them on a platter of gold.
While asking them to support Asiwaju Bola Tinubu if the Presidency is zoned to the South, Agoro said nobody in the South-East has really worked to merit the Presidency in 2023.
“The South-East has been clamouring for their right to produce the President but I doubt if that is going to be a reality. There is nothing like power donation anywhere; you have to work for it”.
“Nobody in the South-East has really worked assiduously to lay claim to the right to the Presidency”.
