2023: Adebanjo, Clark, S/East Govs. meet in Abuja today over Presidency

Leader of the Afenifere socio-political group, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, and leader of the Southern and Middle-Belt Forum, Pa Edwin Clark, are set to attend the Greater Nigeria Conference, (GNC), in Abuja today, Monday, to deliberate on the emergence of the next Nigerian President from the South-East region.

The GNC is a pan-Nigeria dialogue, organised by a global Igbo think-tank, Nzuko Umunna, to canvass support for a presidential candidate from the region during the 2023 general elections.

The GNC, in a statement by its Media Coordinator, Collins Ugwu, said South-East governors and presidential aspirants from the region would also attend the event. It added that more patriotic Nigerians were interested in championing the truth to foster equality, justice and fairness in Nigeria.

“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 what one of them, Governor Hope Uzodinma, of Imo State, declared passionately that the Ndigbo have cried enough on their marginalisation, and Nigerians should grant the region a fair playing-ground in the forthcoming 2023 general elections for the presidency”, the statement read in part.

It further quoted Uzodinma as saying that Ndigbo are zealous, patriotic and committed to the oneness of Nigeria, adding that the region demanded a level-playing field for all to operate and compete.
