He said: “We are practising partisan democracy, not tribal democracy. So, the emergence of presidential candidates will come on a party-by-party basis, not tribe-by-tribe basis.”

Uzodimma dismissed the emergence of presidential candidates along tribal or ethnic lines, but argued that leadership of each political party has the sole responsibility to determine that.

According to him, “If there are some other internal factors that will form part of the considerations for parties taking decisions, of course, that will be entirely the job of the leadership of those political parties and I think that is the right thing to do.”
