Lastly we reiterate our stand, that for all inclusiveness, Equity and Fairness, the Southeast Geopolitical zone should produce the next President of the federal republic of Nigeria come 2023. This stand is sacrosanct to give the South East people who have contributed so much for the growth and unity of this country Nigeria a sense of belonging and equal stake in the governance of the country.”
