Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on Thursday, disclosed that Nigeria will gain a lot if an Igbo man takes over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Ekweremadu while speaking with newsmen, said he still believes that the Igbo Presidency will be achieved in the forthcoming general election.
He added that the country as a whole stands to gain stabilization if Igbo’s are given a chance to rule.
The lawmaker said, “Public and private arguments have been raised in this aspect, negotiations have taken place, compromises are being done.”
“I have not lost faith in that happening because 2023 is still around the corner, but it’s left for people like you in the media, and Nigerians as a whole to decide.”
“When people are unjustly treated, it’s unlikely for them to be interested in peace.”
“For a man who stays in a house, it’ll be irresponsible for him to put fire in that same house if he’s doing everything to make sure that his family is living together.”
“What will Nigeria lose if an Igbo man becomes president? Nothing! The best they can get is to help stabilise the country.”
“Whatever happens will help to stabilize the country and frankly speaking, the country stands a chance to gain a lot if an Igbo presidency is achieved.”
