Obasanjo Wants Igbo Presidency In 2023
The former president stated this on Thursday when a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa, paid him a visit in his house in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Obasanjo said it was time for reconciliation in Nigeria by supporting Igbo presidency in 2023, adding that a president from the Southeast region can bring a lot to the table if elected.
“Beyond bringing unity to Nigeria or being the cement that holds Nigeria together, I believe that Southeasterners can model hard work and entrepreneurship.
“This will help in wealth creation and fight against poverty, which is ravaging Nigeria,” Obasanjo said.
He told Ohuabunwa that running for the office of the president of Nigeria was a tough job but expressed happiness that he (Ohuabunwa) has endured up till date.
Obasanjo added that he was looking forward to the final realisation of his vision to see Nigeria fully united and restored to a country that all Nigerians would be proud to call theirs.
KanyiDaily recalls Olusegun Obasanjo had recently said that many politicians aspiring for the presidency in 2023 should be in jail if the country’s anti-graft agencies had done their jobs properly.
