Former governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said that Ndigbo might be forced to reconsider their stay in Nigeria if the Southeast is denied the presidency in 2023.
He said that since other regions have produced the president in recent history, Igbo people should be allowed to do so in 2023 for the sake of equity.
Ezeife disclosed this in an interview published by Saturday Sun.
He praised northern leaders like Tanko Yakassai and Balarabe Musa for insisting that power should go to the Southeast after Muhammadu Buhari’s presidency.
The ex-governor said, “We are talking of equity, we are talking about fairness, and we are talking of justice; all these considerations require that power should move to the South and within the South, it should go to the Southeast.
