Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Olu Falae, has said his support for a president of South-East extraction should not be mistaken for canvassing for Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi in the 2023 presidential election.

Falae said this in a Thursday statement signed by his Assistant, Captain Moshood Raji (retd), in Akure, Ondo State.

He said he admitted that the South-East has not had the opportunity of producing the president.

The former Minister of Finance said that he has however not endorsed any candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

“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,” Falae said.
