An Igbo group, Igbo for President Solidarity Group, headed by a Yoruba man, Dr. Olukayode Oshiariyo, has recommended 11 politicians from the South-Eastern states that are “qualified to be presented as presidential candidates in 2023 general elections”.

While announcing the names of the Igbo politicians on Friday, August 28, in Abuja after the group’s meeting, the president, Dr. Olukayode Oshiariyo, stresses that the time has come for the country to produce a president from the Igbo tribe.

“IPSC has come to the conclusion that in 2023, a man or woman of Igbo extraction will become the president of Nigeria.

“IPSC will engage in consultations across the six geo-political zones, visitation to Emirs, Obas, Eze, Obi and chiefs, to discuss and examine the characters and integrity of the eleven persons suggested,’’ he said.

However, the names suggested by the group include Dr. Ogbonaya Onu, Peter Obi, Dr. Chris Ngige, Rochas Okorocha, Dave Umahi, Orji Uzor Kalu, Ike Ekweremadu, Enyinnaya Abaribe, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Ifeanyi Uba, and Kingsley Moghalu.

“Since 1999, South-West, North-West and South-South have produced presidents, conventionally, power rotates for equity and justice as implied in the Principles of Federal Character.

“Therefore, in 2023, passionate consideration should be accorded the South-East as the only zone in the Southern region that has yet to produce a president,’’ Oshiariyo added
