Group Says 2023 Presidency Still Possible For Igbos If…
A pro-Igbo group, Ndigbo Royal Heritage (NIROH) Worldwide has advised Igbos to strategise, invest in the right people and work hard in order to acquire power and emerge the President of Nigeria at the 2023 general elections.
President General of group, Dr Paul Okoye disclosed this in Umuahia on Wednesday while delivering the keynote address at the 2023 Igbo Political project conference hosted by NIROH Worldwide.
Only recently, former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu declared his intention to run for presidency come 2023.
The declaration has caused serious upset among the Igbo ranks, with the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo berating the former governor for playing to equity.
However, the NIROH President-General believes Igbos still have much work to do as the 2023 election gets underway, warning that the Igbos may stand to lose the 2023 election if they fail to understand that power cannot be gotten on a platter of gold.
Recommending effective strategy, investment and hard work as a recipe for the Igbo success in the 2023 project, he also advised the Igbos to drop ethnical campaign and jettison the clamour for an Igbo president but rather work for a president of Igbo extraction with the support of other regions in order to make the road to Aso Rock in 2023 possible.
He said Igbos must stop the blame game as it creates an impediment to their onerous match to Aso Rock and should also realise that there is no known nation on earth where freedom and power is free but they have to be fought for and conquered by the interested people.
