Adeseye Ogunlewe, a former Minister of Works, has said the southeast cannot produce a president in 2023.

Ogunlewe said the inability of the people of the southeast to unite under a common leadership would work against their presidential ambition.


He disclosed this while featuring on Arise TV’s ‘The Morning Show’ programme on Wednesday.

The former minister also pointed out that the lack of cohesion among the southeast people would work against them.


He said: “Another set of people that are appropriate, they are the people from the Southeast but they have the problem of leadership.

“They are so endowed that they are spread all over Nigeria and they can gather a lot of votes, but they are too divided. An Imo person, an Enugu person, an Ebonyi man will not listen to themselves.

“They have the money. If they sit down and aggregate what they can offer, they have more money than almost everybody in Nigeria.

“But have you seen one person from the south-east that said ‘I am interested in the presidency, I will start to campaign all over Nigeria immediately, raise money for me?’ and influence the structure of the party?” (BarristerNg)
