2023: Adebanjo, Clark, South-East Governors To Meet In Abuja Monday To Canvass Support For Igbo Presidency

Pa Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of the Yoruba socio-political group Afenifere, Pa Edwin Clark, the leader of the Southern & Middle Belt Forum, and governors from the South-East will converge on Abuja on Monday to persuade Nigerians why the region should produce the country’s next president.

Aside from Adebanjo and Clark, prominent nationalists, statesmen, and leading federalism activists are among those expected to attend the Greater Nigeria Conference, which begins on Monday at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.

The GNC is a pan-Nigeria debate convened by Nzuko Umunna, a worldwide Igbo think tank, to rally support for a presidential candidate from the area in the general elections of 2023.

The conference is dedicated to awakening the best ethnic and political fraternities of Nigerians to appreciate the binding need for accommodation and sacrifice in supporting a Nigerian president from the South-East region in 2023, according to a statement from the GNC Media Office signed by Collins Steve Ugwu on Sunday.

“The preparations are complete, the audience is ready, and more patriotic Nigerians are now selfless in championing the truth that our country can only get better and faster on the wheels of equality, justice, fairness, and deliberate inclusion for all of its citizens, particularly the people of Nigeria’s southeast,”.

The statement by Collins Steve Ugwu, the GNC Media Coordinator said.

“Aside from the nationalist patriots expected in Abuja, from all over the country are also our Governors from the Southeast region, who will play central roles in the big idea of a Nigerian President from the Southeast persuasion project. It is already heartwarming, and a sign of great awareness that one of them, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state declared passionately this week.

“That Ndigbo have cried enough on their marginalization, and Nigerians should grant the region a fair playing ground, come 2023 general elections for the Presidency.”

Amplifying this firm and fair resolve, he again called Nigerians’ attention to history, saying, “Most of the patriots who engineered the plan that made the Southwest region produce the presidential candidates for the two major political parties in 1999 are still alive and active in Nigerian politics. That same underlying love for the country that inspired them to do what they did for the Southwest in 1999, should inspire them to do the same for the Southeast in 2023.

“That simply is a factual foretaste to the many more of what Greater Nigeria Conference will put on the front burner, as they gather all the Presidential aspirants from Southeast before Nigerians to dialogue and persuade the election of one as Nigerian President in the spirit of Together We Can do better for this country.”
