The governor stated this while insisting that the zoning arrangement must be sustained, calling on the stakeholders to workout a formula that would keep Nigeria in one piece.

“We must not do anything that would undermine our existence as one united country,” the Governor warned as quoted by Sun.

“So, I support that the zoning arrangement should be allowed to continue so that everybody can have a taste of the pudie.

“I believe that the Igbo have a legitimate aspiration, but what makes their case bad is the threat they always subjected the country to through their agitation for Biafra.

“Biafra is an unfortunate development in the past and it belongs to the past and people should not be rubbing that on our faces,” he added.

He said Nigeria had passed the stage where somebody should be threatened, insisting that if the Igbo “want the rest of the country to trust them and support their presidential bid, they should stop this agitation and caution their children.”

The Governor further noted that most of the people leading the agitation for Biafra were not even born at the time of the war that claimed millions of lives “and they do not know the cost of war and the psychological implications of war.”

He said the Igbo must not “be reminding Nigerians of Biafra” but instead demand for the presidency, which, according to him, “they have the right to demand for it because they are legitimate Nigerians.”

Meanwhile, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide said it is working for the emergence of Igbo presidency in 2023, noting that there is no going back on that decision.
