Former Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso is not a presidential candidate, according to the highest Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
National Publicity Secretary for Ohanaeze, Alex Ogbonnia, was responding to a statement made by the NNPP’s presidential candidate.
The Southeast, according to Kwankwaso, is too politically immature to deliver the president of Nigeria in 2023.
He declared that Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP’s presidential candidate, would have to serve as his running mate, not the other way around.
Ogbonnia condemned Kwankwaso’s remark and claimed the NNPP presidential hopeful lacked the skills necessary to evaluate the Igbos.
He argued that the Igbo people had been ready for a long time to lead Nigeria.
Ogbonnia emphasized in a statement that anyone who had succeeded in business and resided in another area of the nation could lead Nigeria.
The organization’s scribe believed that an Igbo president will do better because they comprehend the nation.
He claimed that Nigerians shouldn’t have any doubts about the Igbo people’s ability to dominate Nigeria if given the chance.
“Kwankwaso’s description is unfortunate,” he said. He is unable to judge the Igbo people since he does not understand them. Such a statement from a presidential candidate is unexpected.
“As far as I’m aware, the Igbo have been the backbone of this nation’s survival thus far. He ought to be aware that anyone who can prosper in business and living anywhere in the nation can become president.
“Kwankwaso cannot be regarded as the best source of information available to the nation when discussing presidential problems. I do not believe that our skill should ever be questioned, with the exception of our localized nature and the type of politics we have in Nigeria.
