South East Votes Alone Can't Give Us Presidency - Chidoka Tells Igbos

He was reacting to claims of the region being sidelined by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 elections.

 
Former Aviation Minister Osita Chidoka has reacted to claims that Igbos were sidelined by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 elections.
 
According to Chidoka, the southeast region of the country should liaise with other regions to improve their chances of getting the presidential seat. 
 
He spoke during an interview on Channels Television.
 
Chidoka insisted that collaboration with other regions will be key to having a president from the southeast.
 
The PDP Chieftain said;
 
“What I think the southeast is going to be doing is recalibrate our presence in the PDP and continue our strong push for a president from the southeast.

“So, I think we have four to eight years between us and the presidency. We need a strong candidate. We need to continue building on what we have gained already. We need to build ourselves up to be able to present that candidate that would tell the country ‘It is our turn’. And that our turn will be fought on the grounds of the Eagle Square; on the grounds of wherever the primary is.

“We hope that that candidate will be able to elicit votes from other parts of the country because southeast votes are not going to make us president. No matter how many southeast votes we get for ourselves, we need to convince the rest of the country to support our aspirations.”
