North-East, South-East Have Most Legitimate Claim To Presidency – Bala Mohammed
Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed has claimed that the South-East and North-East have the most legitimate claim to the presidency in 2023.
Bala Mohammed who is a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential hopeful, contended that the two geo-political zones had yet to produce the nation’s president in a democratic dispensation.
He stated this on Friday in Awka during his consultation with the party faithful in Anambra.
According to him: “The Igbo nation is critical in the Nigerian project.
“Their entrepreneurial ingenuity and apprenticeship should be imbibed by other parts of the country as a model for addressing poverty and unemployment.’’
He added: “I am presenting myself for election and I seek your support.
“But if I do not win, I will support the eventual candidate because we have to rescue Nigeria.”
