Igbos Must Be Treated With A Sense Of Belonging In 2023 – Edwin Clark

Leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, Chief Edwin Clark has come out to say that former military Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon should have allowed the Igbo to secede at the outset of the civil war in 1966.

He recently this during an interview on Arise TV, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he will always stress the need for the region to be treated with a sense of belonging and he hopes political parties, especially the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party will zone their presidential tickets to a candidate from the South-East.

Clark added that his idea of zoning the Presidency to the South-East is well-known because no Nigerian will like to live in a country where certain people believe that they have the only right to lead.

His words, “My idea of zoning the Presidency to the South-East is well-known. No Nigerian will like to live in a country where certain people believe that they have the only right to lead. The APC believes the 12 million votes by President Muhammadu Buhari might be eroded if it is zoned to the South. The PDP is also considering zoning to the North. This is unfair.”

“Nigeria stood on three legs, and it has never been steady since one of the legs was destroyed during the Civil War. I unpacked all these facts in my forthcoming memoir ‘Brutally Frank’.”

“Gowon should have allowed the Igbos to go if they are to be treated as second class citizens. If zoning which will heal the wounds is not done, there will be no Nigeria. Nobody will remain in this country as a second class citizen.”

“The North believes their population can be used to oppress other Nigerians. This is not acceptable. The era of that has gone. There are many good Northerners but the Fulani-oriented ones want to dominate everywhere.”
