Mr. Moses Ayom has been endorsed as a credible, competent, and unifying presidential candidate in the 2023 election by a group of South-South and South-East leaders from Rivers and Delta states.
The leaders, led by Igwe Friday Ozochi (Ozochimere Eze 1), awarded the chieftaincy title of Ozo Ndi Igbo 1 of Nigeria on Ayom, a leading candidate for the president in 2023 on the platform of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) (The Saviour of the Igbo race).
Moses Ayom is a fit and proper candidate to head the country in 2023, according to Ozochi (Ozochimere Eze 1).
In his words: “It is with a sense of responsibility that we make this call. Having watched the tussle for who and which region should produce the next president of this country, we view the cry of the Middle Belt as one that is close if not worse to that of our region, the South East. This is because whilst our zone the South East has produced a democratic President and Vice president in the persons of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe and vice president in the person Dr. Alex Ekwueme all of blessed memory, the Middle Belt has produced none of these in our democratic journey. Much as we feel every zone at the moment apart from the North West is making a genuine case for the presidency especially our region the South East, we believe that the Middle Belt can serve as a galvanizing front to play the uniting role you have always played in keeping Nigeria strong and united.”
He further stated that “We cannot forget in a hurry the roles played the Middle Belt in ensuring the unity of our country Nigeria from the time of the civil war to the contributions of prominent middle belt leaders like J.S Tarka, Chief Solomon Lar, Olusola Saraki and many others. Having said this, we have carefully and painstakingly watched through most of the leading lights from the middle belt region and have concluded that you Ayom fits the bill for the next president of Nigeria”
He said the groups arrived at the decision after due consideration of Ayom’s pedigree as a man with the requisite entrepreneurial antecedents, which are basic requirements for a virile and prosperous nation.
“We from the southeast are predominantly business entrepreneurs. We believe that coming from that background of business where you have excelled. Your leadership will create an enabling environment for our businesses to thrive”
