 Imo West Senator and former Governor, Rochas Okorocha has  reveal why the All Progressives Congress (APC) must give its 2023 presidential ticket to the south.

He said to avoid division in the house,the ticket should be given to the South.

Okorocha appealed that it’s only logical and sensible for the APC to do this as the North has enjoyed its turn at the central government since 2015 and it is only natural for power to return to the south.

The former Imo State Governor added that he is one hundred percent in support of the demand by the southern governors for the presidency to return to the south

He made his mind known on Monday during an event tagged “Conversation with Owelle @ 59”, organized by the Abuja council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, to celebrate his 59th birthday.

He said, “There’s no justification for APC zoning the Presidency away from the South. If zoned to the North, it will polarise the party. When I took the All Progressives Grand Alliance to the APC for the South- East to be in mainstream politics, I was called many names.

“We should develop national spirit, that high spiritual elevation above personal convictions. It protects the indigent and weak in the society. I see positive and new things to come in Nigeria with such spirit. I agree with Southern Governors on the Southern Presidency.
