Elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, on Friday said Igbo can only become president if the region partners with other regions, especially the North.
He made this known while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
“There is a good opportunity for Igbos to produce the president of Nigeria in the near future or later,” Yakasai said.
“The political arrangement in the country is such that you need correlation with some parts of the North and South.
“The Igbo can make a move of getting partners from other parts of the country, in particular, the North.
“It is not just to complain; meaningful efforts should be made to reach out to get partners so that eventually they will realise their aspirations; and I think they can.”
