He said, “Presidency is not a regional issue. I asked the political parties to zone the presidency to the South-East. When they didn’t do that, and since the presidency is not a regional issue, I had to withdraw.

“I have no problem with the Igbo man being president, but we have to do it with other Nigerians. If we don’t do it with other Nigerians, it will not work, no matter how popular you are. It’s the president of Nigeria, not the president of Igbo land.

“I’m an Igbo man to the core. I’m also a Nigerian to the core. If anyone from the southeast would have been nominated for the presidency, I would have been the one, so it’s a party business. I have no grudges against anybody who is running,” he said
