Ahmed Buhari, a former presidential candidate, has endorsed former Senate President Anyim Pius Anyim for President in 2023.
Given Anyim’s track record in the red chamber, Buhari believes he is the ideal candidate to govern Nigeria in 2023.
When he was the Senate President, Anyim was able to keep the National Assembly stable, he said.
Buhari spoke on Arise TV’s Morning Show to promote a Nigerian president of Southeast ancestry.
He pointed out that the southeast is the country’s sole area without a president since 1999.
“Southeast is the only zone in the entire south that has not produced the president of Nigeria since the advent of Democracy in 1999.
“But among all of them that have indicated interest in the presidency from the southeast, if given the opportunity to choose, Anyim stands out,” he said.
Most political stakeholders have been agitating for the southeast to produce the country’s next president.
