Senator representing Enugu North, Chukwuka Utazi, has warned politicians from the South East against contesting in the 2019 presidential election.
Speaking in Abuja, the lawmaker observed that the current political arrangement of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is not in support of the South East producing the next President of Nigeria in 2019.
According to Utazi, “I am not expecting any Igbo person to contest for president under on the PDP platform in 2019.
“Based on truth and fact on ground, the political configuration of the party will not allow for an Igbo presidency in 2019.
“There is an existing zoning arrangement between the north and the south. It will be foolhardy for the Igbo to contest in the 2019 presidential election.
“I know that the Igbo have bright chances if the north complete their terms.”
