We must be united – Imo Senator
On his part, the senator representing Imo North at the Senate, Benjamin Uwajumogu, said Buhari was committed to handing over power to the Igbo upon completion of his second term in office, urging the people of the zone to massively support the president’s re-election bid. Uwajumogu said it would take the Igbo at least eight years to think of producing the country’s president should former Vice- President Atiku Abubakar win. He said: “President Muhammadu Buhari will hand-over power to Ndigbo in 2023. I am assuring you of that. Ignore the shenanigans and just focus on returning the president a second time. The president is honest and he is committed to it. There is nothing else to do or add to this assurance except casting your vote for the APC come February. “It will take Ndigbo at least eight years if the PDP presidential candidate wins. The Igbo should be proud of President Buhari, he is the kind of president this country needs now.” Uwajumogu additionally claimed that the president had been truthful and simply to the individuals of the southeast geopolitical zone within the distribution of tasks and dividends of democracy.
Igbo’s presidency dream, a charade-Coalition
The Alaigbo Improvement Basis (ADF), a physique of Igbo Intelligentsia, clergy, elders, patriots, ladies and gouth in its response, suggested all properly-which means Igbos to treat the a lot talked about promise of Igbos producing a Nigerian President in 2023 as mere election gimmicks. The president basic of ADF, Prof. Uzodinma Nwala, informed Saturday Telegraph that the Igbos of at present have been politically weak and should consider gaining inner power and controlling its political construction on the house part greater than problem of presidency which he stated is being talked about in insulting method. He stated: “Let me say this frankly, given the present alignment of forces or political configuration of Nigeria, nobody is going to give the Igbos presidency either now or 2023. Nobody is going to do that and that’s the pure truth.”
CLO chides S’West leaders
Additionally reacting, the Chairman of Aba Unit of the Civil Liberties Group (CLO), Prof. Charles Chinekezi, stated Osinbajo demonstrated his excessive degree of political insensitivity in his remark about 2023 presidency going to the South West. Chinekezi stated the Igbo presidency of 2023 is a matter of the political proper of Ndi-Igbo as a part of the robust tripods on which Nigeria stands and never centred on the Re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari. He stated: “Prof. Osinbajo’s comment is just a narrow sense of judgement that is based on tribal sentiments. For a professor of criminal law and justice who ought to understand the political landscape of Nigeria, the multiplicity of ethnic groups, tribes and races with high sense of the dominant tripod of Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba grouping to go ahead and make such comment is quite unfortunate. “For him to have discountenance the Igbos who have been skimmed out of the political settings of Nigeria since after the civil war is unbelievable. As far as we are concerned, the most logical stand of anybody who claims to love Nigeria and wants its progress and peace should be for Igbo presidency in 2023. “Even the North and most Yorubas have talked about it. Even former president Obasanjo said not long ago. I’m sure Osinbajo knows the truth and he is far smarter than the proposal he’s putting forward for his people for 2023. He knows that his proposal cannot even fly anywhere in Nigeria even in Yoruba land. “He should be discountenanced as Ndi-Igbo forge ahead to get their mandate. We all can build a better Nigeria. The issue of Igbo presidency is the issue of right of the South East and anybody who wants to thwart or discountenance it is only smoking a pipe dream and of course that person wants to blow up this country into pieces. “So, let’s be specific, it’s not in the hands of President Muhammadu Buhari or Vice President Osinbajo or any other person. It’s in the hands of generality of Nigerians, right thinking Nigerians who understands how a sovereign nation is built.” Chief Jerry Obasi, the chief of the APGA breakaway faction, ‘Authentic APGA’, whereas reacting, stated that there are robust indications that the APC has no plans to permit the Igbo fly its presidential flag in 2023. Obasi additional urged President Buhari to clear the air on the decision by Osinbajo and Fashola, for the South- West zone to vote for him in 2019 in return for energy shift to the zone in 2023.”
Igbos’re lukewarm- Amaechi
Equally, First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazurike Amaechi, has lamented that the lgbos are displaying indifference over the prospects of manufacturing the subsequent President in 2023. Amaechi who spoke to our correspondent in Awka yesterday stated that energy shouldn’t be given on a platter of gold, including that the South West has proven stronger curiosity within the place. He stated: “Power is not given on a platter of gold and the idea that Igbos will produce the next President of Nigeria in 2023 is not sacrosanct because there is no section in Nigerian construction that talked about rotation of power “The Yorubas are serious about this and they are working hard to get it and I expect our people in Igbo land to work hard and show seriousness. “Our politicians in the South-East should wake up and show that we are interested but the Yoruba are more serious than us. “If tomorrow the position goes to the South West we do not have any body to blame because they deserve it going by the way they are fighting the agenda.”
and you’re shameless
And really grasping too
stalwert to Ohaneze : You’re confused and wallowing in an odoriferous “high” induced by the insanity of dishonesty.
Why not face their celebration PDP or APGA that they’ve laboured for, whereas Tinubu is dealing with his personal get together that he has laboured for?
Even in PDP, the Yoruba politicians will definitely contest for the 2023 presidential ticket there, simply as Ekwueme contested towards the victorious Obasanjo in 1998 and 2002 primaries of the PDP when the ticket was final zoned to the complete South.
Don Etiebet, Alabo Graham Douglas, and a number of different Southerners contested the 1998 PDP primaries that Obasanjo gained with none entitlements.
All the North of PDP have had their flip in 2018, with Atiku from NorthEast defeating Tambuwal of NorthWest and Saraki of NorthCentral.
As per PDP rule, the 2023 presidential ticket can be zoned to all the South, and the SouthWest and SouthSouth will compete for it, because the SouthEast have chickened out of it and have relatively proven curiosity in being deputy to a Northern candidate in continuation of the legacy of psychological slavery and inferiority that their ancestors handed on to them.
As for APC, it should do no matter is sweet for APC with none regard for Ohaneze or PDP which might be irrelevant to the celebration.
Equally, First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazurike Amaechi, has lamented that the lgbos are displaying indifference over the prospects of manufacturing the subsequent President in 2023.

The Igbo elder has suggested his tribesmen to work exhausting just like the Yorubas are already doing.
The time they’re spending lamenting and attacking Tinubu, Fashola, Oshinbajo and Yorubas usually, they might have spent it traversing the nation and interesting different tribes and their trado-political leaders.
As an alternative the Igboman thinks that such lobbying is beneath him who by delusion is probably the most certified to steer Nigeria. Whereas nonetheless making out time to mock these politicians from different areas who’re already doing the lobbying.
The Igbo man calls these politicians as slaves, but his reply to the political affront posed by his adversaries is to be a deputy to a Northerner.
When a Northerner, even an Almajiri, guarantees an Igbo man the deputy place beneath a Northern principal, the Igbo man feels beloved and overjoyed like an orphan who by no means skilled the nice and cozy embrace of a loving mum or dad.
To him, it is sort of a fantasy come true, like Pinocchio looking and discovering the Blue fairy so he might grow to be an actual boy.
See under what an Igbo elder did when he learnt that a Fulani gworo-chewing Muslim Atiku will selected an Igbo boy to be his deputy. He completely misplaced his composure and hugged Atiku just like the Messiah his dying era had been ready to see.
What we lack within the East is UNITY.
That’s the solely factor killing our tribe.
In UNITY we stand.
That saying is GOLDEN!
I’ve intentionally stored mum on this as I had earlier resolved to talk much less on Igbos as regards the 2019 Elections and 2023 Presidency having stated fairly a bit.
Nevertheless seeing as a few of my brethren have swallowed a budget bait, I’ll chip this in simply to maintain the truth earlier than us, a minimum of for posterity sake. Fact is bitter nevertheless it’s nonetheless the perfect drugs.
My individuals say; ‘He who doesn’t keep in mind the place the rain began beating him, won’t keep in mind the place it stopped’.
REWIND TO 2014.
A brand new Nationwide Celebration was being conceived. Political Events, political gamers and Areas have been being wooed to the brand new alliance.
‘We’ Igbos (learn South East) vehemently refused to the touch it even with an extended pole. We packaged, bought to ourselves and purchased the baseless propaganda that it was an Islamic alliance that may start an “Islamic” and “Hausa” Celebration. Just because these our brethren closely invested within the PDP on the time have been afraid of dropping their vested egocentric pursuits.
Until in the present day I am nonetheless making an attempt to fathom the idea for that depraved and twisted deceit particularly as lots of these Igbo elites who bought that dummy have since ported to the identical APC.
We did not even determine with that new Alliance. Therefore the Celebration, APC was birthed with none exceptional enter from us or presence. The few amongst us who aligned have been referred to as all types of names and abused to excessive heavens by us even once they have been confirmed proper afterall.
Thus the few Igbos who have been a part of it have been at greatest fringe gamers as they did not have the required clout to make critical calls for and do the required political wheeling and dealing required in Politics to strike the exhausting bargains since politics is all about pursuits and numbers. They have been even suspect, a lot in order that it was solely their private political sagacity that gave them no matter they received.
That Celebration went on to win the Presidential Election which in fact, most of us by no means believed it might or would, due to our half baked permutations and poor understanding of Nigerian politics. Nevertheless it did.
Curiously we turned up on the fore entrance of telling this similar Celebration the way it ought to share it is ‘spoils of struggle’. We turned hypocritical ethical champions with an over bloated sense of entitlement. Who does that, in all political actuality and practicality? However we did, even whereas vehemently and vociferously nonetheless refusing to shift our place, type and rhethoric.
We dug in. Supported each dangerous factor and individual towards the Social gathering, the elected President and the Administration whereas denying any and each good completed to and for our Area.
Quick ahead to the place we’re at present. Virtually 4 years after the 2015 misadventure, we’ve stayed put at 2015, refusing to maneuver ahead, refusing to shift grounds, refusing to play pragmatic politics, telling ourselves the identical lies we cooked and purchased in 2015 and a few extra.
Only one month to a different election, we’ve got began once more saying “APC cannot give Presidency to Igbos in 2023”. “Buhari cannot hand over to an Igbo man because Buhari hates Igbos”. “APC is deceiving you”, bla bla bla.
In fact. We’ll consider Saraki, who has solely however a fanthom dream of turning into President and whose solely recognized report is selfishness however we will not consider Buhari who’s already President and who has a report of voluntarily choosing two nice Igbo sons as operating mates prior to now? Chukwu aju.
It’s fascinating and very important to notice right here that the PDP which many people nonetheless proudly help and adore was in energy for 16 strong years and in these years there have been four Presidential Inaugurations and on none of these was an Igbo man discovered worthy by the PDP of even Vice Presidency and we’re nonetheless daring to say it’s the APC that has not even completed one tenure that does not need to give energy to Igbos. Odi nma.
NOW; Critically, let’s be honest. As issues stand immediately politically, why would the APC even hand energy to us Igbos in 2023?
On what grounds?
On what data?
On what politics?
Is energy given to anybody?
Is it an appeasement or a present?
The APC is a political get together. The primary focus of a political Celebration is to carry energy and maintain it to allow it ship on its agenda. So if the APC reads that the SE doesn’t need the Presidency or doesn’t have the capability to assist them win and maintain energy, they may stick to the areas that may and work with people who’re .
Make no mistake, I’ve all the time stated, I don’t blame us Igbos for the choice majority of us took in 2015. It is our proper. However persevering with to fake that it was different areas, Buhari or the APC that made us do what we did then or stay the place we’re as we speak is only self deceit and I refuse to play that ostrich recreation.
Way back to 2014, I and lots of others made that argument that Igbo Presidency was very possible in 2023, ONLY beneath underneath the APC, ONLY IF we did a few issues proper politically. I personally continued to talk loudly on that even after the 2015 elections till once I realized that we weren’t able to play the politics that was required and now I dare say it might be too late. Or is it not? Time will inform.
For now, we will proceed to inform ourselves that we can’t maintain the Presidency of Nigeria. I heard and skim lots of our brethren go from PDP to Biafra/seccesion (learn IPOB) to Referendum to “Igbos do not need Presidency but Restructuring” and so forth forgetting that each one that did not lie squarely with us alone. We expect different areas are usually not studying our physique language?
I actually do not care what Saraki writes or says as a result of they’ve all come to comprehend that it’s extremely straightforward to play us like a flute. So like Saraki, like Fani Kayode, like Fayose, like Atiku, even Jonah Jang of all individuals, they hold enjoying us.
I’ve learnt to not hassle myself anymore to keep away from pointless abuse from nonentities . As a few of us have stated, it is good governance we would like, even when just one village will probably be producing the Presidents. So be it.
Ka Chineke mezie okwu.

ko ni da enjoyable ohaneze. They wan chop the place dey no work?
Once you do this, you come out open and declare your stand on who to help, Buhari or Atiku, work very onerous for the individual. If he wins, you merry but when he looses you settle for your destiny and shortly mend face with the winner and encourage others to help him. by so doing, you’ll regularly earn your respect and that of others you lead.
As for me and my family, the selection could be very straightforward as we’re already on the voyage to the subsequent degree.
2023 we ought to be speaking about younger politicians not all these previous cargos that do not know what course these 21st century is heading …
If the opposition fronts a Hausa man as presidential candidate and yoruba as vp what probability will the igbo man have??
It has not gotten to that, Ohaneze. we’d like Igbo president too, Yoruba and Hausa are really egocentric
This individuals are really shameless
That is simply politics to allow the igbos voters to forged extra votes to APC.
They need to use this medium to attract the igbos consideration.. The Yoruba is aware of it is the time for the igbos however they need the igbos to forged votes for buhari..
Whether or not we vote him or not, 2023 is for certain. Our destiny can’t change. Time to see how igbo president will rework this nation since different tribes had tried and failed.
God bless the igbo individuals..
See them: A method visitors politicians.
Selfishness runs of their blood. A politician that has annexed quarter of lagos income yearly, and nonetheless annexing. Infact, he has moved his tentacles to south Western states together with the entire nigeria by appointing peeps like osibanjo, and DG FIRS. It means our financial system is in few individuals palms.

Ohaneze Ndigbo ought to shut up. They’re traitors to the Ibos.
They’re simply preventing for his or her pockets.
To me, Ohaneze Ndigbo has foolishly aligned with APC and Buhari in the event that they declare they havent endorsed ATIKU and wont help Peter Obi.
Allow them to take pleasure in no matter APC and Buhari dish out to them.
Bunch of Rogues disguising as chiefs.
As Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is wont to say, ‘energy just isn’t served a-la-carte’! The Igbo can’t anticipate to have energy handed to them in 2023 simply on the idea that it is their flip.
And in equity to Tinubu, he has invested his time and large assets within the APC venture, like no politician from the South East has ever carried out.
Whoever believed Fashola and people different rogue politicians, merely wants their head checked out or look in the direction of the sky……… A flying pig is about to dive previous……
You admitted that your area just isn’t within the presidential ticket, but you (in the identical breath) condemn one other area displaying curiosity as being over-formidable and egocentric.
The confusion plaguing the Igbos is clearly not restricted to their youths. It might be genetic afterall.
NB: Apologies to the only a few affordable Igbos who’re the exception to the foregoing basic rule.
we’d like Igbo president too, Yoruba and Hausa are really egocentric
Oya begin crying so that we’ll present it to you even within the Amala and Ewedu APC that Igbos do not help.
Spiritual, ethnic, tribal & regional politics is what has stored Nigeria within the present state. Nobody is speaking of greatest palms within the nation.
Ndi Igbo will wail until 50000 hundreds century
Igbo means slave individuals
Proceed enjoying tribal politics. They assume we care. All the cash u have been amassing from PDP. From GEJ. FROM Atiku is choking u.
Na SW do U?
Why all this distraction, the one factor we must be speaking is on tips on how to take away Buhari by feb.
What’s the definition of your personal restructuring?
What can we imply by restructuring?
They need to decide a wrestle for as soon as. In the present day they’re attacking APC tomorrow it is going to be PDP. It is lower than a month to elections.
Igbo individuals nonetheless do not perceive easy politics since 1960 .You’ll be able to’t vote for Atiku and need APC handy over their presidential ticket to you come 2023.Now are you able to see the straightforward message Fashola and Osinbijo is passing?
WE NEED PEACE PLEASE.
This sh*t repeats itself time and again with the South East.
Why cannot they construct a formidable nationwide social gathering and work it to the highest?
However no… They are going to be busy DEMANDING for the whole lot.
Bunch of Unrealistic Individuals
Asiwaju has taken over the marketing campaign of PMB, PYO is doing nice work too, shifting from family to family all in bids to make sure the success of the the four+four .
However the people who find themselves purported to be in all places working to make sure they put together for a beneficial 2023 are both on social media insulting the President or of their enclaves endorsing a candidate that will not win as a result of they hate Buhari, now they’re resorting to blackmailing.
Ordinarily, whose aspiration will you help on this senerio in case you’re PMB?
Some individuals won’t ever study!
