Peter Obi Would Be Sworn In As President And A New Nigeria Would Emerge - Chukwuemeka Ezeife

In addition to widespread electoral violence throughout the nation, assaults on Igbo voters in Lagos last Saturday's elections had a significant impact on the political landscape. Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, an elder statesman and former governor of Anambra State, discusses the subject in this interview and comes to the conclusion that there is a plan to pit Yoruba and Igbo against one another.

You played a significant role in the defunct Third Republic when Abiola was chosen despite racial and theological differences. But during this electoral cycle, race played a significant role. What do you think of that?

"There are competing objectives. As if they have stifled the interests of some people, some individuals are targeted. Although I detest mentioning it, there are religious concerns.

"After Peter Obi was ushered in as president, a new Nigeria would take shape. The Igbo would not request any favors, privileges, or unique treatment for themselves in that new Nigeria where Peter would be president."
