The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that no one will use "intimidation" to make them zone the 2023 presidential ticket to the south.
This is coming from the APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Nabena Yekini, who said that if the southeast wanted power, they would need to lobby.
He added that "you cannot impose anybody on any person" and that it was too early to be discussing matters concerning the 2023 elections.
He said, “They don’t have any right to tell people what to do. It is not by force, threat, or intimidation but by negotiation. If they feel strongly about the ticket, they should form their own political party and give their ticket to whichever zone they want to produce the president in 2023.
“It is called politics because you cannot impose anybody on any person. It is a game of numbers. The Southeast must lobby and tell other regions what they have for them. By the way, it is even too early to talk about zoning in 2023. Instead of heating up the polity, they should resort to alliance, lobbying and consultations.”
