The popular Igbo group, Ohaeneze Ndigbo has declared that Nigeria will have an Igbo president in 2023.
This was made known by President- General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof. George Obiozor in a recent interaction with the press.
“We have been consulting and the result of our consultation is producing results. A leader from the South South, Edwin Clark has come out to say that the South East should produce the next president in 2023. That means we are working and consulting. We are calling on all major political parties to zone the presidency to the South East. That’s the right thing to do. Anywhere in Nigeria or across the world, you must find an Igbo man. It means we are the only tribe supporting one Nigeria.
People always say that Igbo don’t speak with one voice. The Igbo man or woman can’t speak with one voice, we accommodate everyone. It is the duty of the leaders to articulate these various voices and ensure that we present a common position. That is what we will do in 2023.”
The race for the presidency is really heating up as Nigerians in the South-East are poised to take over the mandate from President Buhari.
They have consistently told the two leading political parties that they will not accept any party who bring a candidate who is not from the South-East region.
