He stated, “Some of my best friends are from the southeast geo-political zone that are well endowed and readily available to support me anytime.

Na’Abba who went memory lane said “in 1999, the Late Alex Ekwueme would have emerged our presidential candidate if not for the strong influence of the military because we believed in him.

“As at today, there’s an array of competent Igbo leaders in the mould of Senator Ken Nnamani, Pius Anyim and several others from the South East that can conveniently run our political affairs.

“If they bring incompetent hands it may spoil their chance in 2023, if they bring good hands I will support the South East.
