Igbo Presidency: North Has Not Forgiven Igbos For Killing Sardauna Of Sokoto – Doyin Okupe

Okupe has given one major reason the North will not support Igbo presidency come 2023.

Former presidential aide, Doyin Okupe said Igbo presidency can only be possible if northerners forgive the Igbos for the killing of Sardauna of Sokoto, Ahmadu Bello, by Nigerian soldiers of Igbo extraction in the 1966 coup.

Okupe, who made this assertion via a series of tweets on Saturday, Igbo presidency may not be possible until there is a grand national consensus that supports it.

He wrote: “An Igbo President is only possible if we are able to evolve a grand National Consensus on the project such as that which was enacted in 1999 when the two presidential candidates were Yoruba.

“A national consensus for Igbo Presidency cannot evolve until the core north forgives the Igbos for the killing of Sardauna of Sokoto by Nigerian soldiers of Igbo extraction in the 1966 coup.

“This is the political knot only the Igbo leaders must spearhead and with the support of other well-meaning Nigerians, resolve with a high level of humility and political dexterity.”
