A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the party’s national chairmanship contestant from Adamawa State, Sunny Sylvester Moniedafe, has said it would be fair if party leaders cede the 2023 presidential ticket to the South.
Speaking with newsmen on Friday in Abuja, while officially declaring his intention to contest the position of the national chairman of the party at the forthcoming national convention, Moniedafe said the ticket should be thrown open to all the three geo-political zones in the south to slug it out.
