2023 Presidency: Igbo Need An Alliance With Yoruba – Nnamani
A former Governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, has said the Igbo need an alliance with the Yoruba in order to produce the president.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Nnamani said the South East lost out of the power echelon because of the mistakes made by Igbo leaders and politicians.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain said the Igbo should work with the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 presidential election.
The former governor also insinuated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP), which are popular with the Igbo, will lose elections in 2023.
He wrote: “The two political parties with emotional capture of my people will lose the Presidential election. One a pure exercise in self-driven political catharsis, the other a known abuser and denigrator of my people.
“The Igbo are out of the power echelon of an African State they helped found. Products of self-injury and own goals.
“We need a restart. Based on a paradigm shift. Careful but calculated risk. The Igbo have to retrace the steps of Okpara and Awolowo, The United Progressive Grand Alliance. An Igbo-Yoruba Alliance.
“It is not late for the Igbo to reflect on and carefully X-Ray the looming reality of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“A marathon politician Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, City boy they call him, paid his dues over decades, performed creditably in governance and politics.”
