Immediate past Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, Chief Jide Awe, said on Saturday that the South-West region would produce the country’s next president under the banner of the party in 2023.
Awe said that the governors of the South-West states should have been praised by the Federal Government on the Operation Amotekun initiative, rather than the treatment they got through the office of the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
Awe spoke in an interview in Ado Ekiti against the backdrop of a statement by Miyetti Allah’s Kautal Hore that Operation Amotekun might cost South-West the presidency in 2023.
He said, “They said they won’t give us Presidency in 2023 if the governors insist on protecting their people. Well, the position is not being allocated by the group saying that. Again, let them know that the Yoruba are destined for Presidency in 2023 because we have paid our dues as far as the APC is concerned.”
