Time for Igbo presidency will come – Okowa
The Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said a time will definitely come when a Nigerian of Igbo extraction will lead the country.
Okowa expressed the optimisim during an interview on Channels TV on Thursday.
Okowa, who is also the running to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 2023 presidential candidate, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar insisted that is an Igbo Man in Delta State and the South South geo-political zone.
According to Atiku’s running mate, the South East has the right to agitate for the presidency.
He, however, noted that for South East to become president, it must work hard and be patient.
He stated “There is no doubt that the South East and North East have the right to agitation for the presidential seat.
“Because from the records available, the North East and the South East have not been able to provide a President in this country as of today.
“I do believe that these are issues that we must discuss. These are issues that must be taken into consideration as we move into the future. There is no doubt about that.
“But in making requests, we must also realise that we are in a democratic process. And a democratic process requires that as you push for something, you continue to push and at a particular time it will come.
“The northeast feels that they are entitled to the presidency, the southeast feels that they are entitled to the presidency and both are right.”
