Former Aviation Minister, Osita Chidoka, has said that the South-East should continue to liaise with other parts of the country to improve the region’s chances of getting the presidential seat.

The former Minister said this in a chat with Channels Television, on Thursday, June 16, amid claims that the region had been sidelined by the PDP, ahead of the 2023 elections.

According to him, “What I think the southeast is going to be doing is recalibrate our presence in the PDP and continue our strong push for a president from the southeast.

So, I think we have four to eight years between us and the presidency. We need a strong candidate. We need to continue building on what we have gained already. We need to build ourselves up to be able to present that candidate that would tell the country ‘It is our turn’. And that our turn will be fought on the grounds of the Eagle Square; on the grounds of wherever the primary is.

We hope that that candidate will be able to elicit votes from other parts of the country because southeast votes are not going to make us president. No matter how many southeast votes we get for ourselves, we need to convince the rest of the country to support our aspirations.”
