Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former governor of Anambra on Thursday in Abuja said that zoning 2023 presidency to the Igbo people will lift Nigeria.
Ezeife said this at a public presentation of two books titled “Good Governance – Instrument for Transformation of a Nation” and “On the Sands of Time’’ written by Dr. Joel Oruche, a veteran journalist and Deputy-Director, Federal Ministry of Information.
According to him, it is only the Igbo people who do not understand that God in heaven has already approved the Igbo presidency 2023.
He added that the Igbo president had been endorsed by other religions and regions adding that he was in a good position to say so because he had contact with the stakeholders.
“We thank the Northerners, Westerners, South-South people, and the Middle belt, especially those who have understood our quest for justice.
“Apart from our quest to lift Nigeria, the Igbo president will also cause explosive developmental discoveries in Nigeria.
“So, others should be begging us to come and be president, not this misunderstanding they are having in Nigeria.’’
Ezeife said that it would be alright if the governor of Ebonyi, Mr. David Umahi, eventually gets the presidency ticket adding that there were also other Igbo people from the same zone qualified for the presidency.
He decried the issue of people jumping from party to party saying it was not the best.
