Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has said an Igbo presidency is sacrosanct come 2023.
Addressing members of the Political Action Committee, PAC, of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, who visited him at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, to solicit his support for the quest for a Nigerian President of South-East extraction, Obasanjo said the minimum Nigerians would accept is that the next president should come from the South.
“The next president of Nigeria must come from the South East. The least acceptable minimum is a president from the Southern part of Nigeria”, Obasanjo was quoted by Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, as saying.
The Ohanaeze team consists of Ambassador George Obiozor, the President General; Ambassador Okey Emuchay, the Secretary-General; former president generals of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, and Gary Igariwey.
Others are Professor Anya Anya, former Chairman, Police Service Commission, Simon Okeke, and Dr Chiedozie Ogbonnia, the National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
