It is 3 years and months to the next General Election in Nigeria, where electorates would be deciding their fates in term of political leadership. The apex office being Office of the President has started witnessing aspirations and political bidding even before President Buhari was sworn in for the second term in Office.
The first aspiration came from the National Leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who disclosed that he is being pressured to contest the next Presidency in 2023.
The hope of the Southeastern people of Nigeria is that the region will for the first given an opportunity to produce Nigerian democratically elected President.
While the aspiration of the southeasterners could not be consider undesired or disturbing the pollution it usually contains would baffle any committed electorate.
The major problem is that "Igbo has not learnt to building bridges across Nigeria. And the persistent call for Biafra Nation is another obstacle.
Religious intolerance is strongly demeriting Igbo nation whose population is not fertile enough to pose an electoral threat to other contest in region.
Igbo needs to come together and address some issues.
2023, nothing is impossible but attaching "Nigeria will break" to Igbo presidential agenda is another clause. As a reasonable Nigerian electorate, would you consider an Igbo presidency come 2023 and what would you consider an obstacle to the agenda?
