Former chairman of the National Assembly and President of the Senate, Adolphus Wabara has dismissed any chances of an Igbo Presidency in 2023.
Wabara said the Igbo nation has been systematically confined to certain political limits in Nigeria thus her limited chances to aspire and reach for the Presidency in the next dour years.
Nigerian Tribune reports that Wabara said this through messages with its correspondent in Abuja.
According to Wabara, the Southeast is not ready for the presidency in 2023 when compared to the preparedness of other regions who are interested and financially ready to prosecute the project.
He maintained that the lack of preparedness of the Southeast has denied the region any basis to negotiate a presidential spot for itself in 2023.
His words: “There’s no chance for Igbo presidency in 2023 unless a miracle happens but there will be Igbo presidential candidates from some unpopular parties to satisfy all righteousness.
“Furthermore there shall be no basis for Ndigbo to negotiate with other regions when those regions are equally interested and even more financially ready. We are on our own. Nobody wants us near Aso villa.
“As a matter of fact, we have been given our permanent place and limits in our country called Nigeria. However Ndigbo believes that a wise patient dog eats the fattest bone because this too shall pass, the for President of the Senate stated.
It would be recalled the Imo west Senator, Rocha’s Okorocha had described Igbo Presidency in 2023 as an issue that does not exist, soon after he was sworn in as senator at the national assembly.
