Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has admitted that Nigerian leaders have failed in giving the masses dividends of democracy, hence, the need to apologize to them.
During the interview, the governor also revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023 must have the willingness to visit all the 109 senatorial districts across the country at least three times a year.
He stressed that Nigeria’s next president must possess the quality of transparency, stating that the winner of the forthcoming 2023 presidential election must be able to explain his/her abilities and inabilities.
“The president we need in 2023 is one that is capable of visiting all the 109 Senatorial districts at least three times a year and meeting in a town hall with the people and apologizing to them that we have wrong them.
“The next president must be ready to engage with the people and discuss what he is doing and give explanations for what he can do and what he cannot do. We must apologize to the people because we have really not done well and made the people feel a sense of belonging.
“Our zoning options have been spelt out by the PDP and it says that the Chairmanship of the party should go to the North in 2023. As an individual, I feel that the weight of equity and justice favours the president from the South and when we come to the South, we find out which zone has not yet produced the president and give them a ticket to that zone”.
