Senator Abubakar Geiri, the leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), says the party has zoned the 2023 presidency to the South-South.
This was declared on Sunday during the kick-off of the registration and revalidation exercise in Uyo, the state capital, by Geri, Chairman of the APC Registration and Revalidation Panel for Akwa Ibom State.
According to Geiri, President Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s Caretaker Chairman and Yobe Governor Mai Mala Buni were informed of the decision.

Geiri, portrayed by the Panel’s Secretary, Hon. Sheriff Banki called on the party’s south-south wing, especially the youth and women, to mobilise and register for the 2023 election to take over.
He said: “The presidency is coming back to the South in 2023, I don’t say this by myself, I have Mr. President’s authority, I have the authority of the party’s national chairman to tell you that the presidency is coming back to the South.” So, with this, there’s a ball in your court now.
I am sure that all this mushroom group will soon copy us, too, and suggest that their presidency will come to the South as well. So, you see, our nominee can still not win if you don’t come out in masse to register for APC. So, in all the elections that are coming, come out and register and vote for APC.
“We call on young people and women in particular to go out en masse and own this party because we’ve almost done our own, we’re on our way out, and we want our sons and daughters to come and take over from us.”
He commended the party’s Akwa Ibom state chapter for taking the revalidation seriously by showing up en masse for the exercise.
Geiri said the exercise had witnessed a significant turnout across the country in less than four days from its beginning, which also contributed to the depletion of registration documents.
He added that registration documents will be supplied to all units before Wednesday for individuals to begin their revalidation.
By coming out in masse to register, you have already clearly demonstrated that the knowledge we have is that, in less than four days, all the registration centres in all the units have almost depleted their registration papers.
“If you go to register and they tell you that the forms have been completed, don’t worry, more are coming from now until Wednesday, everybody will have the opportunity to register from their own unit, and this is the basis for Akwa Ibom to take over from APC in 2023,” he said.
