Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ebonyi state, Chief David Umahi has insisted that the South-East geopolitical zone must be allowed to produce the next vice president of Nigeria in the forthcoming 2019 general election.
Umahi, who made this known while addressing PDP faithful at the Pa Ngele Oruta township stadium in Abakaliki, said the zone will only support a presidential candidate in PDP who will allow the South-East produce the vice president in 2019.
The governor also called on the independent national electoral commission, INEC, not to compromise in the forthcoming 2019 general election, adding that the continuous existence of Nigeria lies in the hands of INEC and security agencies.
He said that INEC must be born again to avert crisis in the forthcoming election.
