Arewa Group Backs Southeast President

A group under the aegis of Arewa Support Group for Igbo Presidency has called on the ruling All Progressive Congress and Peoples Democratic Party to support a South East President.

The call was made by the national coordinator of the group, Mustapha Imam,  at a news conference in Kano on Thursday evening.

He noted that if the action is taken, it will promote national unity and ensure peaceful existence and progress.

According to him, “We engaged with several interest groups, opinion, and all other stakeholders towards finding a stand on whom to support at the coming 2023 general election.

“At the end of our consultations, we decided for the sake of equity, justice, unity, and progress of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to support the South East to produce the next President.”

Imam stressed that the South East had not produced a president since 1999 when the nation began practicing democracy.

Imam said the group would continue to engage other sister organizations and Forums across the country to seek their assistance and support for the South-East to produce the president in 2023.

He noted that the group is ready to support any credible and competent candidate from the region irrespective of his political inclination.

“The Arewa Support Group for Igbo Presidency is ready to support any credible and competent candidate who can deliver irrespective of his political alienation,” Imam stated.
