The leaders of the Middle- Belt, Ndi- Igbo (Ohaneaze, the Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, South-South and Afenifere are presently meeting at Sheraton Hotels and Towers, Abuja.

Clark who is the National leader of SMBLF said that ahead of 2023 Presidential and general elections, the Presidency should go to the South.

Clark also said that what the country needed is a production of a new constitution and not an amendment to the current one.

He said the current constitution is not good enough to meet the yearnings of the people.

Already the major political parties in the country are jettisoning zoning.
