Coalition of Northern Elders for Peace and Development has supported a president of Igbo extraction.
The coalition insisted that the presidency should rotate to the Southeast.
The group, which said its support was borne out of the need for every zone to have a taste of the presidency, flayed the marginalisation of the Southeast since 1999.
National Coordinator Zana Goni, and National Women Leader Mario Bichi, in a statement, appealed to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to zone their tickets to the region.
They emphasised the need for all political interest groups to allow the Southeast rule Nigeria for the sake of justice and equity.
