South East APC caucus lauds El-Rufai on rotational presidency
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.
