Prominent Igbos including Ukiwe, Nwodo, Anyim have begun fighting for their region to rule Nigeria in 2023.
These Igbos are looking for the support of Nigerians because they say it is time for the president to emerge from their region.
The Igbo leaders revealed their aspiration at the 6th World Igbo Summit held at the Gregory University Uturu, Abia State over the weekend.
A former military vice president during General Ibrahim Babangida regime, Ebitu Ukiwe (retired), chaired the session yesterday.
Other participants included Nnia Nwodo, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onuh, Anyim Pius Anyim, Iyom Josephine Anenih, and Dr. Ifedi Okwenna.
According to Vanguard, the professors in attendance included Ike Nwachukwu, Joe Irukwu, George Obiozor, Ihechukwu Madubuike, and Greg Ibe.
At the end of the meeting, it was decided that political parties would run in the 2023 general election in southeastern Nigeria, for Igbo to rule.
The group also called for a reform of Nigeria’s administration to make progress.
In another news, we reported that former Kano State Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will no longer allow ‘inconclusive’ election like in the 2019 general elections.
Senator Kwankwaso has said that he and his PDP and Kwakwasiyya supporters will not allow this to happen again, Premium Times reported.
In 2019, the PDP was leading in the gubernatorial election in Kano before the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said the election was inconclusive. Supplementary elections were held in some areas and the APC won, giving Governor Abdullahi Ganduje the upper hand.
