2023 presidential election: Igbo group reiterates position

A political group, Igbo for President Solidarity Congress, said it will not support any campaigns for other political interests contrary to promoting a presidential candidate from the south-eastern part of the country for 2023 presidential election.
The president of the group, Dr Olukayode Oshiariyo, expressed this view in a statement he issued on Tuesday in Abuja. 

 He said that the group noted with concern the reported desire of governors from the northern part of the country to draft in the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan to contest in 2023 presidential election. 

 “We are conscious of the fact that the governors have constitutional rights of expression, but we are worried about the consequence of such expression vis-a-vis its impact on our national unity, peace and progress. 

 “It is obvious that opinions of national stakeholders and opinion moulders like the northern governors carry heavyweight and must be expressed with absolute precept.
