“The Igbos might pull out from Nigeria if they do not secure 2023 presidency!”
This warning was issued by the former governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife in his statement with Tribune.
According to Dr. Ezeife, if the South East zone is not considered for jobs and Nigerian presidency, it automatically means they are not accepted in Nigeria. He also confirmed the exploration of other available options in securing 2023 presidency and in a situation whereby these options fail; it simply indicates that Nigeria does not need the Igbos.
During the inauguration of South East for President 2023 (SEFORP 2023), FCT branch, Dr. Ezeife disclosed that the denial may lead to the South East region pulling out from Nigeria, Tribune reports.
