Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Thursday called on more sons and daughters of Igbo of South East to join the 2023 presidential race and get serious with their ambitions.

Also joining in the call were a number of respected Igbo personalities who also called on the aspirants not to leave any stone unturned in the pursuit of their aspirations, assuring them of the overwhelming support of the Igbo.

This was made known by the National Publicity Secretary of the apex Igbo socio-cultural body, Chief Alex Ogbonnia in an interview with newsmen, yesterday. He restated the group’s position that it is the turn of the South East to produce Nigeria’s next president.

He, however, commended some sons of the region that have thrown their hats in the ring, including former President of the Senate, Chief Anyim Pius Anyim; Senate Whip, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu; Ebonyi Governor, Chief David Umahi and Sam Ohuabunwa, among others.

‘Ohanaeze is happy about the audacity and courage shown by some prominent Igbo in response to the call by Ohanaeze Ndigbo that they should contest the 2023 presidency because it is our turn. We are urging more aspirants to indicate interest so that overtime Ohanaeze would have an internal selection mechanism in presenting the best of the aspirants to Nigerians across the political parties,’ Ogbonnia said.

In the same vein, elder statesman, Chief Mike Ahamba, challenged the aspirants to present themselves to people of the geopolitical zone, so that they will be properly packaged, marketed and handed over as good quality materials to other ethnic nationalities for approval and acceptance for the office.  

He said that if the Igbo want to be given the top seat, those striving to become the arrowheads, must prepare their resumes with acceptable minimal faults, and hand such over to Igbo elders to market them.
