Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma on Friday revealed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is not interested in an Igbo presidency.
Uzodinma stated this on Channels TV when asked whether the APC is committed to zoning the 2023 presidential ticket to the South-East.
The governor, who dismissed speculations on his party zoning presidency to the South-East, said the APC is not looking for an Igbo president for the 2023 elections.
According to him, the ruling party is looking for a president that would be for all Nigerians, not just for the Igbo people.
“We are not looking for an Igbo President. We are looking for a President of Nigeria,” Governor Uzodinma said.
“We as a party APC we believe what we are practicing here is partisan democracy and every politician must be loyal to his party.
“At the end of the day it is the decision of the party that you belong to that will matter.”
Speaking about the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo State on Thursday, Governor Uzodinma said it has nothing to do with 2023 election.
“Our people came out to receive the president who visited Imo State in solidarity to the governor of Imo State. It has nothing to do with 2023 election or politics.
“We only received the president who came on a working visit, commissioned projects and had an interaction with us,” Governor Uzodinma said.
