The biggest sociocultural organization in Igbo country, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, claims that the Igbo presidency in 2023 will put an end to secessionist movements in the southeast.
The organization stated that scuttling the 2023 Igbo Presidential ambition on the altar of Biafra agitation would be fiendish and terrible.
Chief Okechukwu Isiguzuro, the organization’s Secretary-General, stated this in an interview with Punch in Abakaliki on Sunday, November 14, 2021.
“2023 Igbo Presidency is very feasible and any attempts to derail the project anchoring it on the activities of the secessionist agitations in South-East is not only devilish, but mischievously wicked”, he said.
“The consequences of denying the Igbo the 2023 Presidency will strengthen Biafra agitations and it will sink Nigeria’s corporate existence and threaten its unity.
“The expectation of Igbo to achieve the desired results of having an Igbo succeed President Buhari in 2023 is ongoing.
“The only way to end the secessionist movements and stop them from armed struggle is for the Federal Government to opt for a political solution to the problem of Biafra agitations, which Igbo Presidency is one of it. A Nigerian President of Igbo extraction will end the activities of IPOB.
“Secondly, there are ongoing talks with the Northern Elders and the Arewa chieftains, especially the youths. We believe that the discussions through sincere engagements will change the Northern fears over 2023 Igbo Presidency.
“The major political parties are the targets for Ndigbo to achieve this project; there are backstage activities ongoing that will justify the end of the process of making Igbo realise the 2023 Presidency.
“No politician has openly declared interest in the 2023 Presidency, except former Senate President, Puis Anyim and chairman of Nigeria Pharmaceutical Association, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa and that’s in PDP. We are expecting the likes of Senator Rochas Okorocha, Chibuike Amaechi, and others in APC to join the race by 2022 first quarter.
Isiguzuro stated that the southeast must involve other parts of the country, particularly the north, in order to achieve the Igbo presidency in 2023.
