Many politicians from different part of the country have been debating on the issue of giving the southeast region power in the 2023 presidential election.

Still on the debates and the issues of allowing the southeast region to take over power in the 2023 presidential election, the former Federal Commissioner for Information, Senator Edwin Clark has also proposed the emotion of given the southeast presidency.

Senator Edwin said that it is so abnormal for northern politicians to say that the power belongs only to them and that it is not rotational, but they forgot that  the agreement to rotate Presidency between North and Southeast was reached at the 2014 National Conference attended by over 490 Delegates representing various aspects of the Nigerian public.

The former Federal Commissioner for Information also said that it is because of this agreement reached at the 2014 nation conference that made them to be speaking on the matter, in order to avoid any misunderstanding and fights between the southeast and the other Geopolitical Regions in Nigeria.

According to him, "he said that allowing the southeast to have power was also part of the three principal regions of Nigeria headed by Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe as first President of Nigeria from 1963-1966, the Sarduana of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Premier of Northern Nigeria, and that of Western Nigeria, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, as heads of the regional governments".

Not only him, the leader of the South-South geo-political zone and Chair, Board of Trustees, BOT, Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, has also looked into the issue and then stopped the APC Leader of the south-west zone, Alhaji Bola Tinubu from seeking for power in the 2023 presidential Election.

They are only doing this to ensure that their is peace and unity in the country but the northern politicians seems not to be understanding.
