Ohanaeze Ndigbo declared in a press conference in Abuja recently that an Igbo Presidency in 2023 will be a reality.
The President-General of the socio-cultural group, Professor George Obiozor made this known in the nation’s political capital city.
He was quoted to have said: “Our differences and divergent views will not rob us of the Presidency in 2023,” Obiozor said while responding to questions on how the South East will speak with one voice to avoid ahead of the election.
“Politics is a matter of choice. For the Igbos, having different opinions should not be a concern.
“For your information, no section of the polity has just one opinion, Igbos have different opinions and the opinions converge on the Presidency for South East in 2023.”
He criticized the decision of the Buhari led administration not to implement the recommendations of the 2014 political reforms conference opining that it was an opportunity which was lost when he said: “The 2014 national conference was another missed opportunity. Many of the things were done on consensus. I was South East Coordinator in the confab.
“That confab was another failed attempt at remodelling our federalism. They didn’t want restructuring, they didn’t want federalism.”
