2023: Igbo Presidency Is Sacrosanct —Iwuanyanwu
Member of the Board of Trustees of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has said that there is no going back on the emergence of a Nigerian President from Igbo extraction in 2023.
He said that his conviction is based on the principles of equity and justice.
Iwuanyanwu speaking at the 81st birthday celebration of four-time Senator, Chief Francis Arthur Nzeribe at his Haven of Peace country said that the celebrator, Senator Nzeribe had always made a strong case for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction.
He reiterated that the restructuring of Nigeria was long overdue, saying, “The northern part of Nigeria has ruled the country more than the South. Presently, power is still in the North. In 2023, being eight straight years of the North holding unto power again, under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, it is expected that power will shift to the South.
“When you come to the South, the South West and South Southern part of the country have both produced Presidents. It is therefore the turn of the South East to produce the President of this country, come 2023 in the interest of equity and fairness. These are among the things Senator Nzeribe fought for, in his active days in the Senate and the time has come for its realization. This is non-negotiable.”
