Ghali Nabba, a former Speaker of the house of representatives says he will support an Igbo President if the South-East can select the best candidate in the 2023 Presidential poll.
He made this known when he received the National Political Equity Movement, NPEM, led by its convener, Chibuzor Okereke at his residence in Abuja on Tuesday. The politician asked the South East to select their best and present them for selection ahead of the forthcoming general election.
Speaking further, Nabba noted that the South East has enough competent hands that can run the affairs of Nigeria.
He said “some of my best friends are from the southeast geo-political zone that are well endowed and readily available to support me anytime.
“In 1999, the Late Alex Ekwueme would have emerged our presidential candidate if not for the strong influence of the military because we believed in him.
“As of today, there’s an array of competent Igbo leaders in the mold of Senator Ken Nnamani, Pius Anyim, and several others from the South East that can conveniently run our political affairs.
“If they bring incompetent hands it may spoil their chance in 2023, if they bring good hands I will support the South East.
