Doyin Okupe, a former adviser to ex-Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, has written to the National Chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the zoning of their presidential tickets.
Doyin Okupe outlined how the deaths of Moshood Abiola and Sani Abacha led to the problem of zoning in the country in a letter headed ‘2023: Igbo presidency as a national need’, sent to APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, and Senator Iyorchia Ayu of the PDP.
With former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Bukola Saraki, and other northerners vying for the PDP presidential ticket, Okupe claimed it would be wrong for another northerner to succeed President Buhari, emphasizing that power must come from within.
He maintained that any argument against power shift to the South was inimical to the unity and stability of the country, arguing further that once the tickets are zoned to the South, the next president must come from the South East.
In his letter, the former presidential aide argued that in the South, the South East is the only region yet to produce a civilian president for the country.
“Fellow Nigerians, let us come together as a fair and just nation that we are. Let us concession the presidency to the Southeast in 2023 and decisively end the Nigerian Civil War forever,” Okupe said in the letter he shared on Twitter.
“The fact of Igbo marginalization & political oppression is self-evident. Political parties will in a few weeks elect their presidential flagbearers
“It is equitable that once the above stands and power is conceded to the south, the next president must come from the South East
“In the South, only the southeast is yet to produce a civilian president. Fellow Nigerians, let us come together as a fair and just nation that we are.
“Let us concession the presidency to the Southeast in 2023 and decisively end the Nigerian Civil War forever.”
