South East leadership caucus of All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai for identifying with the agitation for rotational presidency in the party for the 2023 election.

South East leadership caucus of All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai for identifying with the agitation for rotational presidency in the party for the 2023 election.

Director-General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr. Osita Okechukwu, who conveyed the feelings of the zone in an interaction with The Guardian yesterday, noted that Governor El-Rufai’s position was a welcome development.

Okechukwu remarked that although the governor did not specifically mention South-East or South-West in his position, “it was gladdening that a major political actor, a Buharist, foremost northerner and foundational member of APC is joining the agitation for the continuation of the rotation convention for the presidency from North to South.”

He said that El-Rufai’s pronouncement contrasts with issues raised by some prominent politicians that Ndigbo are not only missing in the mainstream, but also are agitating for secession, and therefore not a factor when the presidency is being discussed.
