Balance and Equity Group, a socio-political group has called on the South-East politicians to present a presidential candidate that would be acceptable to all the regions of the country.
The group also warned politicians with bad track records to steer off 2023 elections, saying that Nigerians are wiser now and will not accept them.
The founder and National Coordinator of the group, Chris Arinze, while addressing journalists in Onitsha, on Wednesday, said the preparation for the 2023 presidential election should be about presenting the right and credible candidates with capacity to move the country forward.
Arinze urged interested South-East politicians and technocrats to declare their interest in the contest without further delay.
He commended Ebonyi State Governor, Chief Dave Umahi; former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim; and former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu for declaring their interests, urging other interested Igbo politicians and technocrats to declare interests as the best aspirant would be selected among them.
“We want someone that has the capacity and capability to solve the country’s security and economic problems.
“A Nigerian president of Igbo extraction will go a long way to assuage the agitation that have been bedevilling the country, and we assure Nigerians that they will not regret voting an Igbo man as president of this great country”, he further stated.
