Former Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Ogbonnaya Onu, has said President Muhammadu Buhari should be succeeded by someone from the South-East.
Onu who is contesting for the presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, said this at the party’s presidential primary in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said, “I think naturally, it should be somebody from the South-East that will replace him and give the opposite of South versus North and Christian versus Muslim. It will bring stability to our nation, it will strengthen the unity of Nigeria.”
The former Minister also lamented that the South-East was the only region in the South that was yet to enjoy the Presidency.
He said, “The South-West has eight years as President, eight years as Vice President. The SOuth-South has also enjoined the position of VP and President. Where is the justice? We need to do what is right.”
