Femi Adesina who is the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari’s media adviser, has fully expressed some of his beliefs that the Igbo presidency in Nigeria will certainly be achieved.
On Wednesday at the State House, Adesina had also recalled the times when he used to write in favour of Igbo presidency.
The aide had also made the remark while receiving a delegation of Igbo Friends and Onyebuchi Chris Ifediora (OCI) Foundation. The delegation had also congratulated him on the conferment of the National Honour of the Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON) by the President.
Adesina noted that he was always delighted to receive visitors from different parts of the country.
“It shows the brotherhood in us; Nigeria is one country, indivisible. You have demonstrated it by coming to congratulate me.”
The spokesperson said he has two chieftaincy titles from two states – Nwanne di Namba from Mmaku in Enugu, and Ugomba of Isieketa in Abia.
“At the Sun Newspapers, I used to write about the Southeast and the need for a President of Igbo extraction and what the people of the area needed to do to achieve it.
“I know that it would be a reality in this country”, the President’s image-maker declared.
In another report, Ohanaeze Ndigbo which is the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, have blasted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar over his recent claims that he would make sure that he facilitates Igbo presidency.
Atiku had made this statement while he had been addressing South-East stakeholders of the PDP, and he had revealed that he would be a stepping stone to the quest for Igbo presidency.
In a statement on Thursday by the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, he described Atiku’s claim as mischievous and diversionary.
