Igbo Presidency: Come To The North And Negotiate For It – Bashir Ahmad Boasts
The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital Communications, Bashir Ahmad has reiterated that the Igbos can only attain the presidency in Nigeria by negotiating for it.
Ahmad who took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Wednesday said the Igbos have no choice but to negotiate with the north because they don’t have the numbers to make it happen.
He however added that the negotiations can only come after eight years as he already projected a victory for the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
He wrote: “Whether you are ready to accept it now or never, the numbers you’re bragging can never give you the Presidency. After Asiwaju finishes his two terms, you can come to North and negotiate for it. Shi kenan!”

Earlier on Wednesday, Ahmad had also released a statement on the Igbo presidency in which he declared that the region can only win the presidency through negotiations.
He made the submission in reaction to a post by veteran actor, Kanayo .O. Kanayo on how Igbos should vote in 2023.
The actor had urged Igbos to stay where ever they are across the country to cast their vote for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, (LP), Peter Obi during the 2023 general elections.
According to the 60-year-old actor cum lawyer, via his Instagram page on Tuesday night, the totality of the southern votes is over forty million, and the only way the LP flag bearer can attain 25 percent from 36 States, is if those across the country stay put where they are to cast their votes.
Reacting, Ahmad wrote: “I just watched a video from one Kanayo O Kanayo, the video has damaged the Igbo politics once more. How can you be a lover of Igbo and recorded such video and released it weeks to national elections. The reality is, numbers can never give Igbo presidency, but negotiations.”
