The Igbo apex group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has advised the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, to forget his 2023 presidential ambition, saying it’s time for him to pay back to Nigeria.
According to SaharaReporters, the deputy national publicity secretary of the group, Chuks Ibegbu, gave this advice during an interview with reporters on Friday, July 29, in Umuahia, Abia state.
Ibegbu asked how Tinubu could nurse presidential ambition when the South East of Nigeria is yet to occupy the position. He said:
“This is the time for him and other Nigerians that made their wealth solely from Nigeria’s politics, to pay back to the society what they milked directly and indirectly. I wonder why and how Tinubu could nurse such ambition when the south east and the third leg of Nigeria is yet to occupy the position.
“I laud Tinubu’s courage and efforts to deepen the democratic space from the June 12 days, but it appears diminishing return is now setting in. I think it’s high time for him to help build an equitable and just Nigeria.
“He should be less controversial and less ambitious, so that, those who cherish his doggedness will not abandon him in the years ahead. Let him listen to the voices of wisdom from Yoruba land. You know our Yoruba brothers are known as arbiters of fairness and justice.”
