President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr John Nnia Nwodo (Jnr) said on Tuesday that the South-East zone was demanding from the country the presidency in 2023 and restructuring.
Nwodo spoke on Channels Television programme: “Sunrise Daily” where he canvassed for equity and justice to all citizens of the country as the parhway to securing enduring peace and progress.
The former minister of Aviation and Information said that , “Ndigbo should be given the chance to produce the next President of Nigeria in 2023 for the sake of equity, fairness and justice.
“An Igbo President will help Nigeria to regain her rightful leadership position in the comity of nations. It will also ensure Nigeria remains a strong indivisible entity.”
Nwodo said that Ndigbo had not been treated fairly in the country hence he was advocating the restructuring of the federation.
According to him, “Restructuring our Federation is not a Southern Nigeria Agenda
“The present government of All Progressives Congress (APC) came to power with the promise of restructuring Nigeria.
“And this led to the party setting up a Restructuring Committee headed by Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state.
“But unfortunately nothing has been heard again about it hence I stand for restructuring of the Federation to save Nigeria from disintegration.”
He assured Nigerians that Ndigbo would not secede from Nigeria, stressing that Ndigbo were great believers in a strong Nigeria.
