Gov. Rochas Okorochas, told newsmen on Monday that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in South East had no plan to produce a presidential candidate in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.

“What I do know is that Ndiigbo should talk about presidency after President Muhammadu Buhari. I think we should support this government,” Okorocha who spoke after a meeting with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo said.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has tenure to work for, four years or eight years, depending on the zoning arrangement and everybody should follow the zoning although I am not an advocate of zoning,’’ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that acting President Osinbajo also met behind closed doors with Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue.(NAN)
