The national president of the Ọhaneze Youth Council Igboayaka has condemned the statement made by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party Pdp, Atiku Abubakar that he would ensure the presidency gets to the South-East after his tenure, should he win the 2023 presidential election.

Igboayaka, who featured on the Urban Radio breakfast political program The Parliament, lamented the marginalization of the southeasterners in national politics, stating that the contribution of Igbos to national development should rightfully earn them a place in the 2023 presidential elections and not in the next eight years.

Meanwhile, a member of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, Chukwuma Oguji who was also a guest on the program, argued that the southeast will only consider candidates of the Igbo extraction who will serve their interest by providing the infrastructure which is lacking in the region.

Eby from Enugu, who called in to contribute to the program, called on candidates of political parties to focus on issues of national interest during the campaign period.

The campaign for the presidential election in 2023, was flagged off yesterday in accordance with the schedule provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC.
