Northern leader, Tanko Yakasai, has condemned support for the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, for president by some Igbo leaders in the 2023 general election.
During an interview with Channels on Monday, Yakasai noted he is in support of the next president from the South East but Kanu is not capable of the presidential seat.
“There is doubt because this Nnamdi Kanu, who ordinarily would not be a good candidate for the governorship of any of the south-eastern states, is now claiming the attention and support of prominent people in the South-East.
“I am a strong supporter of a president from the South after Buhari and also if he can come from the South East no problem; I will support it.
“The quarrel is that this is not something that you just stay at home and think that people will come to your house to dash it to you.
“You have to show interest. You have to be serious. You have to try to convince people that you are really up to the task. This is what, in my opinion, is missing in the South-East,” he said.
