It is no longer a news that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Prince Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is a public figure, a freedom fighter with a great followers in his struggle to achieve the Republic of Biafra, from what he called ‘Zoo Country’.
No doubt, Nnamdi Kanu, has millions of supporters within and outside the country.
But, “Now that the Igbo leaders truly wake up from their slumber, they should consult the IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, if truly they want Igbo presidency come 2023.
“I doubt, if Igbo Presidency can be possible without Nnamdi Kanu.”
Although, The Igbo leaders against neglecting the popularity of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in their quest to produce the next President of Nigeria come 2023.
Igbo leaders met at Igbere, Abia State recently and declared their readiness to prevail on the two major parties, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to field candidates from the South East.
“The Igbo leaders should realized that Nnamdi Kanu had become a force in the South East politics, they should consult him”.
Neglecting him, “will be at their own peril”, insisting that “Kanu must be carried along if they must actualize their dreams. Despising Kanu will spell doom for Igbo Presidency.”
“Igbo Presidency and agitation for Biafra are odd bedmates. The Igbos must soft pedalled on their agitations if they must have headway in respect of the Presidency.
“The Igbo leaders must have to bring Kanu on the table. This may seem to be unreasonable but it’s imperative that the Igbo leaders must get Kanu involved or else Igbo Presidency will be a total failure.
“The average Igbos believe in Kanu more than the Igbo leaders. Kanu is a force to reckon with, when you talk about Igbo politics.
“Like I’ve earlier on stated, I’ve made up my mind to end the marginalization in nine months of being sworn in as Executive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“You can’t understand Igbos when you are far from them. Having lived in Igbo land for more than two decades, I sincerely believe I have what it takes to move Nigeria to the next level.
“Let’s tell ourselves the truth, Igbos started nationalism. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, of blessed memory, remains one of the foremost nationalist in the entire political history of Nigeria.
“No leader will neglect them and have a successful administration. Check it up from the regimes and administrations so far, any administration that gives Igbos opportunities will always excel.
“Check up IBB regime, Obasanjo regime, Yar’adua regime. They were outstanding administrations because they fully recognized the igbos .
“Any administration that abandons them don’t fare well economically and politically. This is just a fact that can be verified. The igbos will be well taken care of during my administration.”
