As the race for the 2023 general elections hots up, a former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Senator Victor Umeh has said that it would be unfair if a northerner succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Umeh said this during a courtesy visit to Punch Newspapers’ office on Friday.
“We don’t want it to be that after the primaries that they will tell us that the presidential candidates of the two major political parties are from the North. If it happens, we are finished. Those of us from the South will bow our heads in shame,” Umeh said
He added: “We are not going to be in Nigeria by force. They (northerners) cannot tell us, ‘Anything you like, you do’, and expect us to stick together. We have taken a detailed look at the situation in Nigeria; the way things are being run in the country does not promote the unity of the country.”
