2023: Igbo Group Tells Tinubu, Atiku To Forget Presidential Ambitions
Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Bola Tinubu, have been asked to forget about contesting for the presidency in 2023.
A group known as the Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition (PANPIEC), gave the warning in a statement by its Director of Planning and Strategy, Chief Pat Anyanwu, on Saturday, after a meeting between the Coalition and a northern group, Arewa Power Shift Movement, in Port Harcourt Rivers State.
The group stated that allowing the Igbo to produce Nigeria’s president in 2023 will heal the wounds of the civil war.
They, therefore, urged Nigerians to support the campaign for the emergence of an Igbo as Nigeria’s president in 2023.
According to PANPIEC, there are many qualified Igbos persons who are qualified to rule Nigeria and Nigerians should choose among them.
Arewa Power Shift Movement delegation leader, Mallam Dahiru Imam, who spoke at the meeting said the North has a sense of justice and will support Ndigbo’s ambition to produce Nigeria’s president in 2023.
He, however, asked Igbo people to unite and reconsider their agitation for Biafra which, according to him, is frightening the rest of Nigeria.
