Former secretary to the government of the federation, SGF, Chief Olu Falae, says he’s not supporting any of the presidential candidates yet for the 2023 general elections.

Falae, a chieftain of the Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, disclosed this in a statement by his Assistant, Captain Moshood Raji (retd), in Akure, said he admitted saying that the South East had not had the opportunity of producing Nigeria’s president, stressing that It’s not an automatic slot that can be filled without other important considerations.

The statement read, “As a responsible leader, Chief Falae will consider all important parameters, including capacity, experience and proven track record before endorsing a candidate.

“Although  Falae admitted that he said that it was true that the South East had not had the opportunity of being Nigeria’s President, he never canvassed or claimed to be supporting Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party for the 2023 race.

“It should be realised that two of the candidates put forward by the political parties in the county are from the South West, how can a national leader go against candidates that hail from his part of the country?

“This correction is necessary in order not to mislead the public that  Falae is supporting any of the candidates yet.”
