Former Works Minister, Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe’s comment that Igbo presidency in 2023 was not feasible due to lack of unity among Ndigbo has pitched him against the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.

Responding to the comment, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary-General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group said the Lagos APC chieftain was suffering from ‘mouth diarrhoea’.

He said it was not true that Igbo people were not united in the quest for the 2023 presidency, noting that a lot of clandestine meetings were ongoing to actualise it.

He called on Nigerians to disregard Ogunlewe’s comment, which he described as part of “calculated attempts, crooked and provocative onslaught against Ndigbo intertwined with fallacies and falsehoods.”

“Ordinarily, we would have ignored the man suffering from mouth diarrhoea, but we call on Nigerians to ignore him, as 2023 is the not about South East but the repair of a country sinking deep into the abyss of disintegration and insecurity.

“Ogunlewe is not speaking for “omo oduduwa or Yoruba nation”. Men and women of morality from the South Eest are supporting and canvassing for the 2023 Igbo Presidency, not the 2023 South East Presidency, the difference between the former and latter is what the likes of Ogunlewe may not comprehend easily.

“The survival of Nigeria beyond 2023 lies in the fact that every section of the country had tasted the Presidency except the igbo, and attempts by the fifth columnist to coax and intimidate a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction is the quickest route to disintegration and an unending secessionist movement in Nigeria. We are clamouring for Igbo presidency, not South East presidency, whether an Igbo from Niger Delta or Benue or Kogi or South East emerges in any major political party, we will identify with him and support him,” Isiguzoro said.
