The National Coordinator Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, Olusegun Bamgbose, on Thursday called on Igbo leaders to work with the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in their quest to produce the next president in 2023.
Bamgbose who has revealed his intention to run for presidency in 2023, noted that the earlier the Igbo leaders realize that Kanu is important the better for them.
The Lagos based lawyer said, “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.”
