2023: Enemies of Igbos don’t want a President from South-East – Ohanaeze

Ohanaeze Ndigbo has said that enemies of Ndigbo usually work against the emergence of a President of South-East extraction during Nigeria elections adding that zoning the 2023 presidential ticket to the region will remain a fundamental ingredient for national unity.

This was contained in a statement release on Monday by the President General, Prof. George Obiozor who said the current state of the nation underscored the need for a leader of Igbo extraction.

The former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States and Israel said wherever the next president of Nigeria comes from will send a strong message to Ndigbo saying the people have been campaigning for their rights to leadership since 1960, hence the complaints of marginalisation in critical areas of politics and government.

“When the opportunity for leadership comes to them, our rivals and political adversaries always try to shift the goal post whenever Ndigbo are within the penalty box.

“In a country where you have a glaring statistics of power sharing history, there is absolutely no doubt that it is politically and morally defensible and justifiable for power to shift to the South and to the South-East”, he said
