He recently revealed this at the sixth World Igbo Summit of Friday, December 18, at Gregory University, Uturu, Abia State.
According to him, Igbo is a country noted for progress and a nation reputed for strength, even if the Presidency should not be an entitlement.
He added that anyone who wants an Igbo president should diligently and boldly pursue it, because the time has come, and the time is now.
His words, “His(Igbo man) interests are diverse per time. Some have even posited that the Igbo should limit their interest to commercial and entrepreneurial concern.
“It is my opinion that the Igbo of the South-East geo-political zone is in continuous search of a system, or if you like, a polity that guarantees and secures his social, political and economic interest based on equality of citizenship, equity and justice.
“I make bold to say that the Igbo of the SouthEast geo-political zone can find this in Nigeria.
“The journey to building an equitable society is usually challenging and rough, but many nations have arrived safely from this journey.
“It is, therefore, my position that those who posit restructuring have a point, but should work harder to secure national consensus to make it possible.”
“Anyone who wants an Igbo president should diligently and boldly pursue it for the time has come, and the time is now.
“It is, therefore, my considered view that the present-day political interest of the Igbo of the South-East geo-political zone is to attain the Presidency of Nigeria come 2023.”
