The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ifeanyi Okowa, on Friday spoke on the call for the 2023 presidential election to be zoned to the South-East.

The Governor of Delta who described himself as an Igbo man and part of the Southeast noted that his emergence as the running mate of Atiku Abubakar does not stop the call for Igbo Presidency in the future.

Okowa while speaking on Arise TV on Friday evening said he fits into all divides as he is part of people from South-South and South-East.

Recall that some groups had condemned Okowa for accepting to run as Atiku’s running mate despite the call for power to shift to the South-East.

The groups claimed that Okowa who happens to be part of the Southern Governors Forum betrayed the arrangement for power to shift to the South in the 2023 presidential election.

Okowa while speaking on the agitation said, “Being from the South-South, I’m also an Igbo man.

“I fit into all the divides. My brothers in the South-East, I’m part of them. I’m also part of the South-South.

“But this does not stop the agitation in the future for the Igbos to have the presidency of this country.”
