South-East ready to beg for presidency – Anyim , Ezeife - Punch Newspapers

The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria

5 December 2021A former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim, and Chukwuemeka Ezeife, an ex-governor of Anambra State, has said that the South-East was ready to beg in order to clinch the presidential seat in 2023.The statesmen said this on Saturday at the United for Better Nigeria Initiative National Convention in Abuja.

Is It Real? When Everyone Looked At The Photo They Worried

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Anyim said it was neither a right nor was it legal for the southeast to demand presidency.The former SGF further added that they would need to persuade other regions to support their dream if they would produce a president in 2023.

He said, “Is it right for the South-East to produce the next president? My answer is legally no, and the reason is that the constitution is clear, the constitution says every Nigerian of 40 years is entitled to aspire for that office.“On the other hand, morally is it right? Is it an entitlement? I will say yes because the federal character principle enshrined in the constitution encourages rotation.

“The reason I have to make this clarification is that when the right you have is not legal, the only approach and the instrument you have is persuasion.“So the approach, the language will be to persuade others to see reason with you that morally they should support you to take a turn since it rotates.”
