Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has urged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to field a presidential candidate from the South-East come 2023 presidential election.
Ikpeazu stated that since the PDP has given the party’s chairmanship slot to the North, the South should automatically get the presidential ticket.
He said zoning the presidential ticket to the South-East would be in the spirit of fairness.
“Our zoning options have been spelt out by the PDP and it says that the chairmanship of the party should go to the North in 2023.
“As an individual, I feel that the weight of equity and justice favours the president from the South and when we come to the South, we find out which zone has not yet produced the president and give the ticket to that zone,” he told Daily Sun.
