Okorocha insists Igbos will get presidency in 2023
- Governor Rochas Okorocha said 2023 Igbo
residency is certain
- He insisted this is possible if Buhari
completes his tenure
- He says he is not a fan of zoning though
Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that
Igbos should forget about getting the
presidency in 2019 but support the
administration of President
Muhammadu Buhari.
Former president, Chief Olusegun
Obasanjo had said the Igbos should be
given a chance at presidency in 2019
but Okorocha has said that this will only
happen in 2023.
The Cable reports that the governor of
Imo spoke after a meeting with acting
president, Yemi Osinbajo on Monday,
January 30.
He said the All Progressives Congress
(APC) was well positioned and has been
a strong force in the south east region.
“What I do know is that Ndi Igbo should
talk about presidency after President
Muhammadu Buhari. I think we should
support this government,” he said.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has a
tenure to work for, four years or eight
years according to the zoning
arrangement and everybody should
follow the zoning though I am not an
advocate of zoning.”
He insisted that two governors from the
region would soon join the APC and Ken
Nnamani who just moved to the party
would lead the party in the region.
”The APC as a party is strong in the
south-east. We are trying to rebuild the
party and redefine leadership so there
will be no confusion.
“As to whether the APC in the south-east
is in disarray as the case as always
been; we want to have a united party in
the south-east. We are hopeful from all
discussions that about two governors
will be joining us in the south-east to
strengthen the party. Right now, we
have agreed that Sen Ken Nnamani
should take a lead of the party in the
south-east to enable us have a common
understanding – along with other
leaders like Chief Jim Nwobodo.”
