Elder statesmen Alhaji Tanko Yakassai and Chief Mbazulike Amechi, on Tuesday, canvassed for Igbo presidency in 2023, saying the South-East zone remained the only part of the country yet to produce a President.

Alhaji Yakassai, who spoke in an interview on a television programme monitored in Lagos, however, said power was not served anybody on a silver platter.

Consequently, he advised Igbo politicians to reach out to Nigerians in other zones to make the dream of producing the next President in 2023.

”I have a lot of sympathies for the Igbos as far as producing a president for Nigeria is concerned.  The South-West, South-South and the North have all tasted it but the South East has not tasted the presidency.

”However, nobody gives political power to anybody. You have to fight for it.  So, I expect the South East to reach out to other sections of the country for votes.  By their fortune or misfortune, the South East is landlocked, not only in terms of the seas but also in its relationship with other people in the country.
