2023 Presidency: “Work for it, stop nursing self pity,” APC chieftain warns Igbos

Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, National Inland Water Ways (NIWA), Chief George Moghalu to expand their tentacles so as to convince other ethic groups as a way of actualizing Igbo presidency in 2023.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant for Anambra 2021 election, speaking during a press briefing in Nnewi, at the weekend to Igbos not just to  sit down at one place nursing self-pity, saying that they need to work for it and show the proof.

“Since it’s a democratic dispensation where number matters, there is need for Ndigbo to sit down and get organised for the Igbo presidency project. Every zone wants to have the presidency. For me, I will like the Nigerian president to come from Nnewi because of the positive impact it will have on the community. But the truth is that we are not talking about president of Igbo, but president of Nigeria who will be an Igbo man. If we fully realise the enormity of the project, we have to put our house in order, so that we can constructively engage people from other zones to get the needed number.

“There are two political platforms with which one can prosecute the presidency in Nigeria of today. That is the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress. What I expect us to do is to work hard towards making Ndigbo win the presidential primaries of the two political parties, so that it can be a win-win situation for us. All hands must be on deck to actualise the Igbo presidency project,” he said.

He said that if elected Governor,  he would create an opportunity for his government to be assessed by the public in a manner “which no governor in the state has ever done.”
