2023: Atiku Knows Whose Turn It Is To Be A Nigerian President–Ohanaeze

The apex Igbo body said it was ridiculous for the former Vice President to say that his presidency would be a stepping stone for an Igbo person to become the president of Nigeria.

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has told the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar that what is good for Nigeria’s existence at the moment is to have a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction in 2023.

The group described it as just, equitable and fair.

The apex Igbo body said it was ridiculous for the former Vice President to say that his presidency would be a stepping stone for an Igbo person to become the president of Nigeria.

Media earlier reported that Abubakar had while interacting with the PDP stakeholders in the Southeast region last week, pledged that he will work for the zone to produce the presidency in 2023 if the people of the zone help him to actualise his ambition of taking over as Nigeria’s president in 2023.

He said he would help actualise an Igbo presidency in 2027, should the region support him to win the election in 2023.

However, reacting to the statement, the spokesman for Ohanaeze, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, said it is the turn of Igbo people to produce the president after eight years of President Muhammadu Buhari, a northerner.

“Atiku has said what he wanted to say, but he would have realised that nobody would take that advice, no person from the Southeast or an Igbo would take that advice seriously.

“I can assure you no person from Southeast or Igboland will take that advice that we should wait until 2027 because, right from time, everybody knows that it is the turn of the South and, by extension, Southeast to produce the next president.

“So, any patriotic Nigerian will realise that what is best for Nigeria is to allow the Southeast to produce the President.

“Any person talking or discussing the contrary knows in his or her conscience that he is doing the wrong thing or taking the wrong direction.

“We are not in support of any person saying that; it is not acceptable to the Southeast and the whole Ndigbo. Everybody knows it is the turn of the Southeast to produce the next President in 2023; any person talking to the contrary knows he is making a mistake and that person is not sincere.”
