A People’s Democratic Party Member of Board of Trustee and Billionaire Businessman, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu said that come 2023, that an Igbo or Southeast president in Nigeria is a certainty.
He said this on Sunday while he was addressing newsmen at his Oguta residence in Imo state. The Politician cum businessman decried that the North has ruled Nigerians for too long hence, 2023 is a time for South East region to produce a President.
In the Elder statesman’s words, “The northern part of Nigeria has ruled the country more than the South. Presently, power is still in the North. In 2023, being eight straight years of the North holding unto power again, under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, it is expected that power will shift to the South.
He also said that as far as the Southern region is concern, that Southwest and South-South had in the past ruled this country as President, talking about Chief Olusegun Obasanjo(SouthWest) and Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan(SouthSouth), it is therefore time for Nigerians to be ruled by a Southeast.
Concluding, the Elder statesman said that “South East must produce the president in the “interest of equity and fairness.”
