It is necessary to await the programmes and manifestos of the political parties and their candidates before arriving at a particular candidate to support.” Mr Falae agreed that although the South-east region had not had the opportunity of being Nigeria’s president, it was for them to persuade other Nigerians that they could offer something better than candidates from other geopolitical zones.”It’s not an automatic slot that can be filled without other important considerations.Chief Falae never canvassed or claimed to be supporting Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party for the 2023 race,” the statement added..” Adebanjo added that the group trusts Obi to restructure Nigeria if he is elected.
