Former Anambra state governor, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, on Monday stated that God has willed it for a person from the South-eastern region of Nigeria to become President of the country in 2023.
He made the statement at the Prof Akunyili Women Development Centre, Awka, Anambra State during a summit for the grand opening of the Global Movement for Igbo Presidency 2023 on October 5.
Ezeife, while speaking on Igbo presidency, also commended the initiator of the Global Movement for Igbo Presidency, Kennedy Iyere, from Edo State.
“It appears God in heaven is saying it is time for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction. Other Nigerians seem to believe in Igbo president more than the Igbo people. Igbos are the development agents of Nigeria. We make Nigeria look more like a nation. We believe culturally in developing any part of the world we find ourselves in.
We deserve to be given a chance and I am glad that our people in diaspora and from other tribes unanimously agree that an Igbo president is what Nigeria needs to take the next strides towards development”, he said.
