As the election for President of the Igbo socio-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo in 2023 approaches, Prof George Obiozor, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that whoever the country elects in 2023 will send a clear message to the Ndigbo.
Obiozor said in a statement made on Monday, February 14 that
“Wherever the country picks its president from in 2023 will send a strong message to Ndigbo.
I understand clearly the dilemma faced by these leaders but Nigerian politics is at a point of no return where national destiny is at stake and where patriotism and political wisdom must supercede personal ambition.”
The President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo stated that Ndigbo as an ethnic nationality is gifted with a significant number of talented Nigerian patriots and credible people who are excellently suited to rule the country and meet the citizenry’s aspirations via equality, justice, and fairness.
“Indeed he or she will bring into the office, an amazing sense of peace and harmony to the country, ensure imperative of national unity and commitment to good governance with dedication, decency and decorum.
Since 1960, Igbos have been campaigning for their rights to leadership in Nigeria. So anybody who says that we have not campaigned enough about the ‘2023 Igbo President’ is guilty of historical fallacy because many of us know how often those rights and opportunities have been denied or ignored with impunity.
How can one be accused of making noise over marginalisation or discrimination in critical areas of Nigerian Politics and at the same time accused of not making enough political campaign for the 2023 Presidency? Ndigbo has not campaigned for any relevant national political office since the end of the war. Most Nigerians with conscience and patriotic as well as friends of Nigeria inside and outside the country know this to be the truth.”he said
