Forget Igbo Presidency in 2023, MASSOB tells South-East

Chukwudi Akasike, Port Harcourt The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has told the South-East people not to contest the 2023 presidential poll. MASSOB said it would be difficult for any Igboman or woman to win the election. Speaking on the telephone with our correspondent on Wednesday, MASSOB Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor, said the political calculation in the country had never favoured Ndigbo to produce the President since after the civil war. Okereafor said the likes of Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Chuba Okadigbo and Alex Ekwueme failed in their bid to land the top job in the past. He said, ‘’The Igbo are already thinking of 2023. Some of them are preparing to contest the 2023 presidential election. They should forget it because it is a gamble that can never work.

The gang-up has been there for the past 50 years and there is nothing anybody can do about it.’’ Okereafor said the struggle for Biafra would continue until it was achieved, adding that 2023 presidency was a distraction to the people of the South-East.

El-Rufai backs return of presidency to South in 2023The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, on Monday said the 2023 presidency should go to Nigeria's southern region. How this minion elrufai arrogates political might to himself and his region beats imagination. Even if he had such powers, his support for a southern Presidency would be a poisoned chalice.
