An Igbo Person As Nigerian's Next President

48

Since the return to civilian rule in 1999, a Yoruba man has been president for 8 years and another Yoruba will be vice president for 8 years by 2023. A Hausa/Fulani has been president for two years. Another Hausa/Fulani is currently in power and will be completing 8 years by the next election year. A Hausa/Fulani was vice president for eight years under a Yoruba man as president for 8 years. Another Hausa/Fulani was vice president under an Ijaw man as president for 6 years. An Ijaw man was president for 6 years. The Igbo, one of the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria is yet to produce a Nigerian president since 1999. A lot of Nigerians especially those from the South believe that political power at the centre should be rotated between the North and South hence it is the turn of the South for equity sake. They know that if it is based on population, the North will continue to produce the president. As such, they are appealing to the Northerners to allow a Southerner to emerge despite the huge population of the North. It appears some considerate northerners are thinking in this direction. The irony is that some Yoruba South-westerners, who are appealing to the North to release power to the South, do not want to listen to their Igbo South-eastern counterparts to also tow this line of reasoning. After producing the President for 8 years and vice president for another 8 years with the Igbo not producing any of the above, they Yorubas (not all) still want to take the southern slot in 2023. They use a lot of tricks such as latching on the seeming misunderstanding between president Buhari and most Igbo forgetting or pretending to forget their support for Shehu Shagari, the massive Igbo support for Bashir Tofa, late president Umar Musa Yar'adua and Atiku Abubakar who are/were all northern Muslim politicians. They are also trying to use the call for independent Biafra as a blackmail the Igbo from getting the number one position while pretending not to know about the agitation for an independent Yoruba nation led by Sunday Igboho. They also fail to realize that the actions of Niger Delta militants did not stop former president Good luck Jonathan from becoming Nigeria's president neither did Boko Haram insurgency in the northern part of Nigeria stop president Buhari's emergence as Nigeria's president. If the North should be considerate and allow power to shift to the South, the Southwest should also be considerate and allow power to shift to the Southeast. A lot of people have been preaching One Nigeria. To me, it is those who do not want an Igbo person as president in 2023 that are the real enemies of One Nigeria. God bless lovers of peace, equity and justice. God bless Nigeria.
