2023: 2 Things Ohanaeze Ndigbo Said Recently In The Quest To Achieve Igbo Presidency

In anticipation of the upcoming 2023 presidential election, there has been serious pressure emanating from the Southern region lately especially from the Southeast concerning the region that should produce the next president of the country.

Amid the situation on ground the Ohanaeze Ndigbo apex socio-cultural group has insisted that the 2023 Igbo presidency is inevitable, despite the fact that the Southern Governors Forum is yet to disclose between the South East, Southwest, and the South-South zones which region should be allowed to produce the next president of the country come 2023 if it eventually gets zoned to the region.

However, following the intense pressure from the Ohanaeze Ndigbo group to produce the next president of Nigeria, the socio-cultural group has resorted to unleashing threats and blackmails lately in a bid to grab power by 2023. In the light of the unprecedented development, here are two open threats the group has recently issued and had vowed to implement should they be denied the opportunity to produce a president again in 2023.

1: Threat to endorse agitators and secessionists in the Southeast.

The apex Igbo group in a report I came across yesterday had vowed that they will support the ongoing agitation in the Southeast and that the upcoming independence day may be the last if Igbos fail to take over the presidency come 2023. They further berated the Northern governors for daring to say that the North will not relinquish power to the South in 2023 while citing that the North had already produced 10 Heads of state in the past.

•2: Threat against PDP's move to field a Northern candidate.

The youth wing of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo group known as Ohanaeze youths had vowed that if PDP fails to cede their presidential ticket to an Igbo candidate come 2023 that their offices and facilities in the Southeast will cease to stand, as the youths wouldn't hesitate to engage in a battle with the party should their demand be ignored.

What are your thoughts on the development?
