Yekini Nabena who’s the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has tackled the issues concerning the next presidential candidate in the party.
He said that their presidential candidate will only based on agreement of the party’s stakeholders.
While he was speaking, he suggested that, for Igbos to actualize their presidential goal in 2023, they have to wake up and do what others do which involves series of negotiations.
“We know that there are six geographical zones in the country. But what is going to be the major determinant is the agreement by stakeholders. The unity of the country is more important than any zoning arrangement,” he said.
Nabena added: “Every zone will be involved in the stakeholders’ meeting. But I want to, however, urge the Igbos to know that getting political positions involves lots of negotiations and lobbying, not by whipping up sentiments or by force.
“The Igbo must discover their allies and go into deep negotiations. They must begin to wake up to the reality that politics is by number. We have seen what Igbo could only do with a political party we can say is truly their own, APGA. How many states did APGA win in the Southeast? What it means is that they cannot get it right with their own political party.”
