The Centre for Credible Leadership And Citizens Awareness has advised politicians from zones that have produced presidents since 1999 to shelve 2023 presidential ambitions in the interest of national equity and cohesion.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, the Director General of the center, Dr. Nwambu Gabriel, explains that it would amount to insensitivity if certain aspirants from the regions who have enjoyed their share in the on-going political equation still present themselves for the exalted office.
Those advised to stay away from the race include former president Goodluck Jonathan, vice president yemi , APC national leader Bola Tinubu, sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal Amongst others
Also advised to stay away are
Rabiu Kwankwaso, Aliyu Wamakko, Mallam El-Rufai, Governor Aminu Tambuwal, Governor Kayode Fayemi, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi and Godswill Akpabio.
While justifying his position, Dr. Nwambu explains that, the nation is made up of six Geo Political Zones Out of which the south west, north west, south south, have all taken their turns since 1999.
According to Dr Nwabu ,the North Central, the South East, and the North East are yet to enjoy the same privilege.
He urges the two major political parties in the country, that is, the APC and the PDP to choose their presidential candidates from these 3 geo political zones that haven’t had the opportunity of producing the President.
This formula he maintains would stabilize the already tensed situation and enhance the peaceful coexistence of Nigerians across board.
