A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has advised the people of the South-East to reach out to other regions of the country in their quest to produce the next Nigeria’s President in 2023.
Fani-Kayode said the people of the South East must build confidence among other regions to actualise an Igbo presidency in the next presidential election.
The former minister spoke when he visited Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, at the Governor’s Lodge in Onitsha.
He advised Ndigbo to seek support and confidence of stakeholders outside the South East and speak in unison.
He lamented the challenge of insecurity in the Country, especially in the North which he said was becoming worrisome, and asked the President Mohammadu Buhari-led administration to take radical steps to address it.
Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), however, score the administration of Governor Obiano high on security architecture and other infrastructural developments in the State.
He urged the people of Anambra State to sustain support for Governor Obiano.
He said that he was on a tour of Southern States, visiting his friends, and stressed that his visit wasn’t political, but building bridges across party divide, pointing out that the visit offered him an opportunity to visit the site of the ongoing Anambra Airport project.
Mr. Kayode said that the Anambra airport project is extraordinary in size and design, emphasizing that when completed, the runway will be the longest in Nigeria.
The former Minister of Aviation advised the Governor to remain focused and ensure that the person who will succeed him will be someone that will build on his achievements.
