A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu, has called on 2023 presidential hopefuls to support Igbo president so as to rebuild Nigeria and beyond.
Speaking in an interview with Daily Post on Monday, Ibegbu insisted that Atiku Abubakar, Bola Tinubu and Governor Yayaya Bello should drop presidential ambition.
According to the former Ohanaeze chieftain, an Igbo man or woman will ensure rapid development in all facets of governance in the country.
He also urged alll political parties in Nigeria to zone their 2023 presidential ticket to the southeast zone of Igbo extraction.
Ibegbu warned those trying to use “pro-Biafra agitation to tarnish Igbo’s clamour for the presidency in 2023 to stop such as secessionists activities in the north such as Boko Haram did not stop Muhammadu Buhari from occupying Aso Rock.”
Ibegbu noted that Nigeria will witness uncommon development with an Igbo person as President, describing Ndigbo as nation builders.
He further disclosed that critical Igbo stakeholders would soon start the tour of all parts of Nigeria to build bridges and meet all other key stakeholders on the issue.
