Chris Idoko: 2023: Tinubu, Atiku’s presidential aspirations justify Kanu’s stand on Nigerianess to Ndi-Igbo
Let me start this piece by making it categorically clear to these aspirants, their families, supporters, friends and loyalists that I have nothing against
On 4th December 2017 as reported by premium times ahead of 2019 election campaign, Senator Orji Uzo Kalu in reassuring President Muhammadu Buhari of Igbos support for him, stated that “After Buhari’s eight years, nobody in Nigeria can tell us that our region cannot produce the president…”. Tinubu and other and APC bigwigs ahead of 2019 general election campaign was very clear in emphasising that a vote for Buhari’s second term is a sure bet for Igbo presidency come 2023. That campaign trick obviously triggered a lot of confusion to Igbos voting pattern ahead of the 2019 elections, with Peter Obi as running mate to Atiku Abubakar; a political calculation that might have possible 25% total vote to Buhari in the region.
Atiku appeal to Igbos to hand over to them in 4years is poisonous to equity , we Igbos will not negotiate our birth right
