Senator Explains Why Nigeria Desperately Needs Igbo Presidency

Chris Ekpenyong,A Senator representing Akwa Ibom Northwest, has advocated for Igbo presidency in 2023.

Ekpeyong said Igbo presidency would help deepen national unity and give people of the Southeast a sense of belonging in Nigeria.

Speaking in Uyo, the state capital, Ekpenyong said all zones of the country deserve an opportunity to produce Nigeria’s president.

He said the Southeast should be allowed to produce Nigeria’s president like other regions of the country.

According to Ekpenyong: “My prayer is that we should allow an Igbo man to become the next president of Nigeria.

“If the North and the South West have produced a president, why can’t the Southeast be allowed to become president of Nigeria?

“Igbo presidency is the path that will lead to deepening our national unity. It will assuage the feeling of disillusionment among the Igbo. It will also give them a sense of belonging. No section has the monopoly of capacity to lead Nigeria.

Ekpenyong’s remark comes at a time when the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai had said the South should produce Nigeria’s next president.

  1. Jesus Christ is the only hope, accept him and be safe.

  2. Let's give the Igbo a chance,We own this country together

  3. The rulers and shakers of this country have heard you

  4. Who is shaking this table πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

  5. How will an Igbo presidency create unity in the country? Will it stop the killings going on in the north or the herdsmen attacks on farm and raping of defenceless women? If Boko Haram can be killing when their kinsman is in power, how much more when an Easterner they often refer as 'infidels' take over?

    Truth is that, Igbo presidency will do no much if the constitution is not corrected. Nigeria constitution is her number one problems. It favors a particular section of the nation evidently the north. If the constitution is not amended , corrected and the country structured, then I am afraid nothing will bind us together. You can take this as certainty.

    1. TeeJay State the part of the constitution u are referring to please, I want to see for myself.

  6. It's not about tribe, mbok. If an Igbo man enters, and he fails to deliver nko..

  7. Igbo leader or we need a good leader and better change

  8. What Nigeria(ns) need is a president that can move the country forward from this sham .
    Its not about tribe.
