Speaking to newsmen in his home in Enugu state on Monday, June 22, the 80-year-old politician, opined that ceding the next Nigeria Presidency to an Igboman or woman was for the interest of justice, equity, and fair play and urged all political parties to adopt South East as the destination for its presidential candidates.
He went further to add that anyone who does not believe in the 2023 Igbo presidency project, does not wish Nigeria well.
“2023 Presidency will be the turn of South East to produce the Nigerian president. So, I am calling on other parts of the country to support the project for the interest of justice, equity and fair play. The South- East geo political zone of the country deserves to produce the next president who will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in the next political dispensation.” he said
The politician added that as a nation existing under a tripartite arrangement of North, South and East, it would be important for the other regions of the country to throw their full weight behind the South East in its quest for Igbo Presidency.
