Dokpesi speaks on why southeast cannot produce president of Nigeria in 2023.

The founder of DAAR Communications, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has revealed how the secessionist agitation for Biafra by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), has affected the chances of the southeast in producing a Nigerian president.

He said the belief by some Nigerians was that the IPOB leader would force a Nigerian president of Igbo origin to declare Biafra. According to him, Kanu may use militant tactics to blackmail and force an Igbo President to declare Independence for the South East, stressing that Kanu and IPOB have complicated the chance of the southeast to produce a Nigerian president.

The Emeritus Chairman of DAAR Communications in a statement released on Monday, October 18, 2021, said:" The emergency of IPOB and its influence across the Southeast has complicated and undermined the agitation for patriotic Nigerians of Igbo extraction to lead this nation as far as the 2023 election is concerned.

"If nobody has told Ohanaeze Ndigbo before, the concern today from some other regions is that if Nnamdi Kanu plays the role of Aguiyi Ironsi in leading a militant revolt against constitutional government in the southeast under Igbo presidency, the president will be pressured by his base to facilitate the UN processes for the South East to call for Independence from Nigeria. Thus, an Igbo President may be compromised in protecting the political and geographic boundaries of Nigeria whilst Nigeria remains under the threat of IPOB's secessionist activities" he concluded.
