“How Can We Win The Presidency When The Last Igbo Aspirants Were Only Campaigning In Abuja” – Richard Ozobu Reveals (Details below)



Prince Richard Ozobu, a chieftain of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said that the Igbo can only actualize their dream of producing a Nigerian president through going into political alliances with other sections of the country.

Speaking on the failure of the Igbo man to clinch the presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he said most of the Igbo aspirants in the last presidential primaries were not even prepared, their agenda were not even known to the region as most of them were only campaigning in Abuja.

He said no tribe can get the presidency alone, adding that the tribe must get the support and acceptance of others through going into alliances with other sections of the country.

He also said Igbo leaders are aware of this fact but what have not done to get the support and acceptance of other zones for the Igbo presidency project?

He further stated that there was no poster of any Igbo presidential aspirants in any of the Igbo cities.

Calling for the region to learn their lessons, he said, they must emulate the great Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe and Dr. Michael Okpara who entered into alliances with the North during their time, adding that the people saw what the Igbo benefitted from their alliances with the North.

Meanwhile, Orji Kalu, the Chief Whip of the Senate, has said that there is nothing wrong if the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, decides to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election.

The Senate Chief Whip while addressing journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday, told Christians that there was nothing to fear as the party’s presidential candidate’s wife is a pastor who would always have the interest of the people at heart.

“If I am in Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s position, the wife is a pastor in a Pentecostal Church. I will go for a Muslim-Muslim ticket. The most important thing is for the party to win. We should stop this rubbish about religion,” he said.
