The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and other Western and Northern contenders for 2023 Presidency has been called on by a pan Nigeria group, Nigeria Unity Forum, to recede his ambition in the interest of the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.
The group in a statement through its Secretary-General, Digifa Gabriel, on Tuesday, noted that it will amount to insensitivity to the feelings of Ndigbo who desire to contest for the Presidency if Tinubu and others continue to exhibit their ambition.
NUF called on political parties and stakeholders in the country to ensure justice and equity by zoning the 2023 Presidency to the South-East geopolitical zone.
The group further stated that it would meet with key stakeholders in the country after the Coronavirus lockdown.
Director of Media and Publicity of the Forum, Prince Uche Erondu, while speaking on the topic noted that the call by the NUF is worthy and all Stakeholders should heed to the group’s position.
Contributing, Chuks Ibegbu, the Spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the Igbo socio-cultural organization, noted that the concern of the group is on the restructuring of the country but that an Igbo should succeed President Buhari in 2023 for equity and justice.
