Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has declares support for an Igbo Presidency in 2023.
Obasanjo, now an elder statesman, made this known while receiving a 2023 Presidential aspirant, Chief Mao Ohuabunwa on Thursday in Abeokuta.
Obasanjo maintained that the time has come to bring total reconciliation to Nigeria by supporting a president of Southeast extraction to emerge in 2023.
The former president said he also believes that there are a lot of things that South-easterners can bring on the table.
“Beyond bringing unity to Nigeria or being the cement that holds the country together, I believe that Southeasterners can model hard work and entrepreneurship. That will help in wealth creation and fight against poverty, which is ravaging Nigeria,” he said.
He told Ohuabunwa that running for the office of the president of Nigeria was a tough job and stated that he was looking forward to the final realisation of his vision to see Nigeria fully united.
