Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has revealed that the Igbo have no right to demand the presidency in 2023.
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) got low number of votes in the region during the 2019 presidential election and Amaechi said it was clearly a deliberate action against the party.
Concise News gathered that the former Rivers state governor said this during an interview with The Sun.
“I don’t know what they will do now for voting against the APC,” he said.
“For refusing to support the APC, they cannot come to the table to demand the presidency slot.
“For people like us in the APC, if the Igbo had come and voted Buhari, they would boldly tell Mr President and the National Chairman of the party that presidency should go the Southeast since the South-south; South-west and North-west have produced president. What argument would the Southeast come up with now to convince anybody that they deserve the slot for 2023 president?”
The minister said the region was completely out of national politics and if Igbo are not found in national politics, it will be to the detriment of their children.
