Ex speaker of the Imo state House of Assembly,has come out to say that the Southeast region has suffered marginalization politically in Nigeria.
Ibe recently revealed this via a statement made available to newsmen in Owerri and was delivered at a conference of South East 2023 Presidential Mandate group held in Enugu.
According to him, it is glaring that the Igbo region has been subjected to unpardonable wrongs in a country they are citizens in, and that should not be the case.
He added that only an Igbo man can turn around positively the economy of the country to stop any form of marginalization to Southeast, and some parts of Nigeria.
His words, “Until the South-Eastern leaders come together and genuinely work for a common goal, the quest for a Nigerian president from Igbo extraction would once again elude them in 2023.”
“The South East region of Nigeria has had a checkered political history as a people and seem to have for many years been perpetually consigned to a near-permanent inglorious bench of presidential trauma.”
“This region has suffered marginalization in every way possible. We have for long been subjected to all kinds of unpardonable wrongs in a nation which our heroes past fought for its liberation from colonialism.
“We as a people have for several years struggled to be accepted in the presidential leadership equation of Nigeria. We have struggled to stamp the footprints of our identity on this nation’s political landscape. We have made our mistakes, placed our trusts and confidences wrongfully.”
“The stark reality of the Nigerian situation for many years can only mean one thing. We are backward, disillusioned, disunited and undeveloped the way we are because a South easterner has never had the opportunity to be the Executive President of Nigeria.”
“It is time to realize that it is only a southeastern President of Nigeria that can be traditionally, spiritually and psychologically balanced to spread economic development evenly across Nigeria.”
