Former Federal Commissioner for Information, Senator Edwin Clark has opined that it is time for the South Eastern States of Nigeria to start ruling the nation.
Clark said that there is supposed to be a rotation of power in the party to help the other states to have a better representation in the government and national matters.
He called on Ahmed Tinubu to allow the South Eastern States to also rule Nigeria.
He said“It is for this reason that some of us are recommending that the South-Eastern part of Nigeria should be allowed to produce the President of the country. It is the turn of Southern Nigeria to produce a President.
“The likes of Ahmed Bola Tinubu of the Southwest zone, a zone which has ruled this country at three different times with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo ruling as Military Head of State and as a democratically elected President, and Chief Ernest Shonekan as Interim National President, should allow the Southeast, which 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,” he added.
