The Special Adviser to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has pointed out what the South East must do to produce Nigeria’s President, in 2023.
Adesina said the South East must play a better politics to get what he termed the, “ultimate office.”
He stated this in his latest article titled: ‘Dave Umahi’s heart of Lion.”
Adesina described Umahi’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC, as that of a “lion’s heart.”
The presidential spokesman noted that politicians like Senator Orji Kalu, Hope Uzodimma, Governor of Imo State, Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige and Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi are pushing for the South East to produce Nigeria’s next president.
The article reads partly: “I’ve always said it. The South East must play better politics to get the ultimate office in the country. Sleeping and facing the same direction may not be the best option.
“The Orji Kalus, Hope Uzodimmas, Chris Ngiges, Dave Umahis, and many others, are now shining the light, so that their people can find the way. And so let it be.”
Recently, the South East have been clamouring for the presidency, stressing that it’s their turn.
