The African Democratic Congress, ADC, says in the interest of equity, justice and unity of Nigeria, the next president should come from the South East geopolitical zone of the country.
Chairman of ADC Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu stated this in an interview with Radio Nigeria in Abuja.
Chief Nwosu who Maintained that the interest of the country supercedes individual interests, insisted that there were quality presidential materials from all zones of the country.
He explained that it would be unfair to Nigerians if the South East extraction was denied the opportunity to produce the next President.
Nwosu who made it clear that his view may not be in tandem with the decision of his party, said the choice of the zone to produce the next President should be based on fairness, equity and justice, noting that management of the diversity of the country required efficient application of diversity principles.
On the chances of his political party to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress at the Federal and State level, Nwosu who said ADC was prepared for the 2023 General Election added that Nigerians have become wiser, as any attempt to use money to buy their consciences would fail.
” We have gone back to the drawing board, we have reflected on our past performance at the polls and had come out with a new strategy to win big in the next elections. “Inclusion is key to us, we don’t sweep people off the bus neither do we let Nigerians out in the rain or severe weather. With our handshake symbol, we shake hands and pull everyone along”.
He explained that the party was mobilising youths and women to takeover the space and make changes for the good of Nigerians.
“ADC has established a Youth Hangout across Nigeria aimed at empowering and inspiring the youths.
He explained that the party won many seats at the National Assembly and 12 State Houses of Assembly.
