Emeka Ihedioha, former governor of Imo State, has said that power would rotate to the Southeast after Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), would have completed his tenure as president.
Ihedioha, a member of the PDP, was captured making the argument in a trending video circulating on social media.
Ihedioha in the video said that Nigeria cannot afford to make mistakes in the 2023 election and that there are two parties in the election, the PDP and the All Progressives Congress.
He said, “Let me tell you, after Atiku Abubakar, the next president of Nigeria will come from the South-East of Nigeria. That is the gospel. You must win in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Gombe, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa etc to become the president of Nigeria.
“There is what we call passion and there’s what we call emotion. They are two different things for people who went to school like me. Emotions don’t win elections. You must be realistic to win elections. You must plan to win election and that is where I belong. I want to tell you, I have the key to the direction of where Ibo should go.”
