‘Geopolitical zones in Nigeria have produced president except Southeast’ – Chief Simon Okeke

The former chairman, Police Service Commission (PSC), Chief Simon Okeke, has described as genuine and timely, increasing demand for president from the Igbo extraction, ahead of the 2023 general election.
He said the continued deprivation of the region the opportunity to produce the president would amount to sheer injustice, lack of equity and fairness.
Addressing reporters in his country home, Amichi, in Nnewi South Local Government of Anambra State, Okeke said anyone from the Southeast that held contrary view should have his Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid (DNA) investigated.

He said: “I believe there’s a genuine demand for president by the Igbo. The six geopolitical zones have produced president except the Southeast. Anyone that says it’s not the height of marginalisation is not facing the reality.
“If a Southwesterner will canvass that, anyone from the Southeast who says anything to the contrary, we will have to investigate his DNA.”

“I don’t also buy the idea of substituting Igbo president for restructuring. What is good is good. I’m glad that even among the Yoruba, the leader of Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, has been consistent in advocating an Igbo president.”
