Speaking at the national convention of the United for Better Nigeria Initiative (UBNI) held on Saturday, in Abuja, Anyim stated that the south-east would have to approach the campaign for presidency with ‘persuasion’.

“On the other side, morally, is it right? Is it an entitlement? I will say yes because the federal character principle enshrined in the constitution encourages rotation.

“The reason I have to make this clarification is that when the right you have is not legal, the only approach and the instrument you have is persuasion.

“So, the approach, the language will be to persuade others to see reason with you that morally they should support you to take a turn since it rotates.”
