- Yakasai also said the Southeast governors and elites lacked unity to push for the presidency
Former Special Adviser to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, has revealed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential ticket will not be handed to a candidate from the Southeast.
Yakasai said there are no indications that the APC presidential candidates would come from the Southeast.
The Kano State APC chieftain said the party may preferably settle for a Southsouth presidential candidate.
He explained that party may opt for the Southsouth if the Southwest fails to clinch the APC presidential ticket.
Yaksai, who spoke on Arise TV’s Morning Show said: “As far as I am concerned, I have not seen any indication that the APC is going to field any candidate from the Southeast and I don’t think that is going to happen.
“Even if Southwest does not get it, to be honest, I don’t see the APC giving it to anybody from the Southeast, maybe the South-South but definitely not the Southeast.”
Yakasai also said the Southeast governors and elites lacked unity to push for the presidency.
He also noted that the region lacked the numbers that would produce a Nigerian president.
“In the Southeast, they keep agitating individually but they have not come together collectively to show a unified front to the rest of the country that they are indeed ready for this presidency. There is no unity among the governors, there is no unity among the political elite and there is no unity among the followers. And unfortunately for them, they do not have the numbers, which means that they need the support of one or two regions”, Yakasai added.
