2023 presidency

The Igbo Elders Consultative Forum (IECF) better known as Ime-obi Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has insisted that power must shift to the South in 2023.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that there are indications that Nigerians are likely to see northerners as the presidential candidates of the two major parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). This has left many people fuming, especially apostles of southeast presidency.

IECF Chairman and former Anambra State governor, Chukwuemeka Ezeife restated in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the Forum’s latest meeting that the Southeast must produce Nigeria’s next president.

“We are totally against, in whatever guise and eloquence, the idea of another Northerner succeeding General Muhammadu Buhari because it is a direct invitation for the aggravation of crises, conflicts and separatist demands by various sections of the country, among other unimaginable violence.

“Nigeria cannot afford to be changing the goal post in the middle of the game because of its unimaginable social, economic and political consequences,” Ezeife said.
