The leader of the Pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, leader of the Southern & Middle Belt Forum, Pa Edwin Clark, governors and relevant stakeholders will converge in Abuja on Monday for further deliberation on the South East presidential agenda in 2023.
The meeting which is expected to have in attendance the Greater Nigeria Conference led by the former governor of Enugu state, Chief Okwesilieze Nwodo, eminent nationalists, statement and foremost campaigners of true federalism is scheduled for international Conference Centre, Abuja.
The Great Nigeria Conference, in a statement by its Media Officer, Collins Ugwu said that the meeting would discuss a perfect strategy aimed at convincing Nigerians on why the region should be supported in producing the next president in 2023.
“The planning are complete, the audience is ready, and more patriotic Nigerians are now selfless in championing the truth, that our country can only get better and faster on the wheels of equality, justice, fairness, and deliberate inclusion, for all her citizens, especially the Southeast people of Nigeria,” the statement said.
Aside from the nationalists, patriots expected in Abuja from all over the country, governors from the South East region, would play central roles in the big idea of a Nigerian President from the Southeast persuasion project.
It is already heart-warming, and a sign of great awareness of what one of them, Governor Hope Uzodinma, of Imo state declared passionately this week. That Ndigbo has cried enough on their marginalization, and Nigerians should grant the region a fair playing ground, come 2023 general elections for the Presidency.
