Nnamdi Kanu To Pay Nigerian Soldiers, Police Officers Salary, See Condition

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has rejected the idea of a southern presidency in 2023.

Kanu in a statement on Friday said the move will be a distraction and even if eventually actualized, such a person will be impotent to act as a true leader.

He alleged further in the statement released on his Twitter handle that a southern president will be controlled by the Northern Muslim politicians who are keen on holding on to power in Nigeria.

He, therefore, urged politicians from the southern region not to be deceived by the allure of a power shift in 2023.

He wrote: “The quest for Southern Presidency is diversionary. The transitory allure of power shift to the South has blinded Southern politicians to how far gone Nigeria has become Fulanized & Islamized, all to the degree that a Southern President will always be impotent. Think about it!”

Meanwhile, Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senate Minority Leader and Senator for Abia South Senatorial District has said that the quest for Igbo presidency in 2023 is not negotiable.

According to him, if the agitations to get equal opportunities with other parts of the country are discarded, it would only elongate the already existing pitiable condition and thus subject her people to second class citizens.

He urged Igbos not to relent but to remain firm, resolute, and undaunted in the face of legions of challenges as there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
