The leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, Edwin Clark, has described the decision of the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress to allow Northern candidates contest for their party’s ticket as unfair.

Clark stated this while calling for the presidency in 2023 has to be zoned to the South-East extraction.

He noted that no Nigerian would like to live in a country where some people believe they have the only right to lead.

According to Clark, if the presidency is not zoned to the South-East in 2023, there may be no Nigeria as no one wants to stay in Nigeria as a second class citizen.

He stated this while speaking during an interview on Arise TV on Tuesday.

Clark said, “My idea of zoning the Presidency to the South-East is well-known. No Nigerian will like to live in a country where certain people believe that they have the only right to lead.

“The APC believes the 12 million votes by President Muhammadu Buhari might be eroded if it is zoned to the South. The PDP is also considering zoning to the North. This is unfair.

“Nigeria stood on three legs, and it has never been steady since one of the legs was destroyed during the Civil War. If zoning which will heal the wounds is not done, there will be no Nigeria. Nobody will remain in this country as a second class citizen.

“The North believes their population can be used to oppress other Nigerians. This is not acceptable. The era of that has gone. There are many good Northerners but the Fulani-oriented ones want to dominate everywhere.”
