Igbos have been advised to forget ever dreaming of having anyone from the region become the President of Nigeria.
A famous Igbo group, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has told government officials from the South-East not to waste their funds on the 2023 presidency as no Igbo man will ever rule Nigeria..
MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Mr Sunday Okereafor, who expressed this during a phone meet with Punch on Wednesday, demanded that having a President of Nigeria from the South East region is impossible.
As per him, the plot to guarantee that no Igbo could ever take on the situation of President started after the civil war. He included that any Igbo who chose to run for the presidency in 2023, would just waste his or her money.
“Those people calling them to be ready for the presidency are not sincere. We know that it will turn out to be a waste of funds and a waste of time. The Igbo will never rule Nigeria; so, the Igbo politicians should avoid wasting their money.
“Alex Ekwueme tried it and failed, Rochas Okorocha went and failed, Ogbonnaya Onu went there and failed. Also, Odumegwu Ojukwu tried the presidency and failed; a lot of Igbo tried it and failed,”
He pointed out that some Igbo in government only went there to get money, saying nobody will take them seriously when the time to occupy critical positions in government comes.
