Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has explained why the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) needs its 2023 presidential ticket to the Southeast.
He stated this on Monday while fielding questions from newsmen.
According to him, the Southeast has not produced Nigeria’s president; hence PDP should give its ticket to the zone.
Ikpeazu argued that in the spirit of fairness and justice, it is the right thing to do.
“Just as PDP zoned its Chairmanship to the North, the presidential slot should go to the Southeast.
“Our zoning options have been spelt out by the PDP and it says that the chairmanship of the party should go to the North in 2023.
“As an individual, I feel that the weight of equity and justice favours the president from the South and when we come to the South, we find out which zone has not yet produced the president and give the ticket to that zone,”
