Presidency Easier Than Biafra

In related news, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide says it is easier to achieve Igbo presidency than Biafra independence.

The group urges the Igbo and the proscribed IPOB to support the cause for an Igbo presidency in 2023.

According to the group, the Igbo should be supported to take a shot at the presidency in 2023 for unity, justice, fairness and equity to reign.

The call was contained in a statement signed by both the president and the secretary general, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike.

It reads: “Southeast remains an integral part of Nigeria, and in other to address all manner of ill feelings like perceived marginalisation and Biafra agitation, Nigerians irrespective of tribe and religion know that for unity, justice, fairness and equity to reign, Igbo should be supported to take a shot at the presidency in 2023.

“It’s glaring to all Igbo that Igbo presidency project is closer to achieve than Biafra realisation.

“The process of achieving Biafra independence is more cumbersome and complicated compared to Igbo presidency project which is closer and easier.”

The group said irrespective of the fact that Igbo and IPOB believe in Biafra independence, it is aware of the limitations of Biafra agitation.
