The Governor of old Anambra State, Senator Jim Nwobodo, has added his voice to the clamour for a President of Igbo extraction come 2023.
The former Governor made his mind known at his Amechi country home during the conferment of a chieftaincy title “Eziokwu by ndu” by Amuri Ancient kingdom.
The crowned prince who bestowed the title on the elder stateman is, incidentally, Dr Ben Nwoye Prince, the State Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Enugu State.
During the ceremony which had the State Executive of the All Progressive Congress in attendance, Senator Nwobodo insisted that for justice and equity to be achieved, 2023 should be seen by all as the turn of Ndigbo.
According to Nwobodo,”We are not joking about it, I’m serious about it. 2023 is the turn of Southeast to produce presented of Nigeria.”
“The country is sitting on a tripod and Igbo can’t be relegated to the background,” he warned
