Catholic Archbishop of Lagos. Most Rev. Dr Alfred Adewale-Martins
The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos. Most Rev. Dr Alfred Adewale-Martins, on Friday said that it would be justified to zone the Nigerian presidency in the 2023 General election to the Southeast.
The Archbishop called on the nation’s political actors, the political parties, and the civil societies to save the country from unwanted upheavals by ensuring that somebody from the southeast of Igbo extraction becomes the president in the next dispensation.
He regretted that many innocent blood have been spilled as a result of the imbalance that negates true federal structure.
He charged the women to galvanize themselves and use their numerical strength to change the narrative and see a woman aspire beyond being presidential candidate of a party to becoming the president of the country.
He added that leadership recruitment processes of the political parties are faulty as they end up propping up persons whose characters do not conform with peoples’ aspirations. He called for a change of the process to enable good persons emerge as flag bearers. (NAN)
