Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) national chairman, Igboayaka O Igboayaka, has said the only remedy for Nigeria’s mismanagement is to vote someone of Igbo extraction as Nigeria’s next president in 2023.
The OYC leader also revealed that by the end of 2022, the Southeastern people of Nigeria will know whether to remain part of the country or not.
According to him, by then there will be clues as to whether anyone from Igbo extraction will come forward as president.
Igoayaka revealed this in an exclusive interview with Daily Post on Thursday, adding that Nigerians will do themselves a favor if they elect the next president from the Southeast region.
“The Nigerian president of Igbo extraction is a favor to all Nigerians, not even Ndigbo. In fact, the liberation of Nigeria from the shackles of bad leadership is the arrival of an Igbo person in 2023 to rule Nigeria.
“An Igbo person is the one and only Nigerian, that’s why they settle and own properties all over Nigeria.
“Let me tell you, the Fulani political oligarchy made a terrible mistake, they could have reveled in why God miraculously made Ndigbo a part of Nigeria. If they didn’t realize this favor in 2023, they would don’t have it anymore.
“By the end of 2022 there will be a sign whether Ndigbo will be part of Nigeria again or if they will have their own separate country,” Igboayaka said.
Speaking about the alleged marginalization the Southeast is suffering under Muhammadu Buhari’s government, the Igbo Youth Leader said: “Ndigbo’s marginalization didn’t start with the recent or current government, but it started from 1970 when none of Gen. .Gowon was implemented in every part of Igbo land. Ndigbo has been marginalized since 51 years (1970-2021).”
The Igbo youth leader also said, “Young people will not go to war while they are fighting themselves. If the elders cause war, the youth will force the elders to go to ‘war’.
“The young people need to know that the Igbo nation is theirs, so we must try to survive by all peaceful means.
“Any crisis or act of violence affects the young more than the elderly, so I would urge my people, no matter the provocation, that we should never again use weapons or any other weapon and go to war against ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.”
