The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, on Tuesday said the choice of who emerged presidential candidate in 2023 would be based on political party and not by tribe.

Uzodinma said this in an interview with State House correspondents after a meeting he had with the President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja

His position is coming at a time there is a raging debate between those arguing that the South, especially the South-East, should produce the next President and those who hold the belief that Buhari’s successor can emerge from any zone.

The governor said, “You know that the position is not vacant now; there is a sitting President and we are practicing partisan democracy and not tribal democracy.

“So, the emergence of presidential candidate will come on party by party basis, not tribe by tribe basis.

“But if there are other internal factors that will form part of the considerations for parties taking decision, of course, that will be entirely the job of the leadership of those political parties and I think that is the right thing to do.”

The governor said he sought Buhari’s intervention on the problem of erosion ravaging his state, which he described as alarming.

Uzodinma said he had no personal grudges against a former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, but that the senator should also realise that another person is in charge of the state now.

One thought on “Tribe can’t determine who becomes President only party, Uzodinma plays down 2023 South East Presidential brouhaha

  1. On Nigeria presidency 2023 and beyond. And the choice for and against South-East. The interview granted His Excellency Governor Hope Uzodimma, is great realizing that final choice for actualizing, lay down with Mr. President and the ruling political party, main opposition party and others.

    To this end also thank God His Excellency Governor Hope Uzodimma is himself a dependable choice from South-East, full blooded Igbo Nigerian. He is also a serving state Governor in a South-East state in Nigeria. He is a card carrying member (if not even inner caucus member) of the ruling All Progressive Congress APC. This party need to capture the heart and closer understanding with the good and very hospitable people of South-East. The best available option to achieving this historic landmark is for the ruling APC to do the needful and be the first and unexpected, unbelievable liberation of the land and people of South-East, Nigeria. A suting balm for all frayed nerves. Embrace accross East coast of Niger. Lion dens hinterland Nigeria. See the support ruling APC will receive Nationwide and Globally. There are many other knowledgeable, honest, influential South-East personalities who have consistently worked so hard and sacrificially with Nigerian progressives and the Buhari persona in the history of partisan politics in contemporary Nigeria and Africa in global politics of today. South-East 2023 is a good and sure bet for sake of justice and fair play.
