The forum leader, Mr Lawrence Onuchukwu revealed this in a statement in Abuja in support of Gov. Nasir el-Rufai’s call for the rotational convention from the northern Nigeria to South.
According to him, the South East zone is the only zone in southern Nigeria that is yet to give Nigeria a president since the rotation convention dispensation that started in 1999.
He added that it is important because the reason for the country’s unbroken democracy is the rotation of power.
His words, “The APC as ruling party must do everything possible to concede its presidential ticket to a South easterner in 2023 to attract massive vote and a landslide victory for the presidential election.”
“It’s no magic that Nigeria has experienced over 20 years unbroken democracy; it is all due to the rotation of power that has been going on since 1999 to date.”

Muhammadu Buhari GCFR (born 17 December 1942) is a Nigerian politician currently serving as the President of Nigeria, in office since 2015. He is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’état. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.
He unsuccessfully ran for the office of president of Nigeria in the 2003, 2007, and 2011 general elections. In December 2014, he emerged as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the March 2015 general elections. Buhari won the election, defeating the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan. This marked the first time in the history of Nigeria that an incumbent president lost to an opposition candidate in a general election. He was sworn in on 29 May 2015. In February 2019, Buhari was re-elected President, defeating his closest rival Atiku Abubakar by over 3 million votes.
Buhari has stated that he takes responsibility for anything over which he presided during his military rule, and that he cannot change the past. He has described himself as a “converted democrat”.
Muhammadu Buhari was born to a Fulani family on 17 December 1942, in Daura, Katsina State, to his father Hardo Adamu, a Fulani chief, and mother Zulaihat. He is the twenty-third child of his father. Buhari was raised by his mother, after his father died when he was about four years old.
