2023: Why Igbos Can’t Be Trusted With Power – Northern Groups
The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has explained why the Igbos cannot be trusted with Nigerian presidency.
Abdulazeez Suleiman, CNG’s spokesman said Igbos could not be trusted with power because their elders posed a national threat to Nigeria following their recent warning of disrupting the country if they can’t produce the next president come 2023.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Suleiman also condemned Igbo elders for calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
According to him: “Similarly, groups of Igbo leaders and elders have engaged in desperate covert and overt efforts to secure the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the IPOB terror group standing trial for crimes against the state.
“As if these were not enough, the same group of Igbo elders again recklessly issued a national security threat on May 4, 2022, that any attempt to elude the zone of the Presidency in 2023 may rupture the existence of Nigeria as a corporate entity as well as aggravate crisis, conflicts, separatist demands, and others.
“This has deepened the fears that the Igbo cannot and should never be trusted with presidential power.”
