Prof Aloysius-Michael Okolie, the national president of the Nigerian Political Science Association (NPSA), has ruled out the chances of an Igbo man emerging as Nigerian president in 2023.

The speaking in Nsukka on Saturday, January 25, the professor of political science explained that the chances of an Igbo presidency in 2023 were highly unlikely due to the political structure of Nigeria which is against people of the southeast, Vanguard reports.

Okolie pointed out that some ethnic groups in the country marginalise people of the southeast zone. He urged all political zones in the country to make efforts at replicating the south-west’s security outfit called Operation Amotekun.

Professor Yima Sen, director-general of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has said that the success of any of the candidates that will win the 2023 presidential election will be determined by the north.

Sen also said in an interview with Vanguard that the NEF was yet to take a stand on the next presidential election but added that he was not opposed to President Muhammadu Buhari's replacement coming from any part of the country as long as the person meets certain requirements.

Asked if he and his group would accept Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress as Buhari's replacement in 2023, Sen simply said he was looking forward to a leader of Nigeria that will give the country qualitative leadership irrespective of where the person comes from.

In another report, a Nigerian politician, Suleiman Muhammad Nazif, has said the APC will not be in power beyond 2023 and the opposition PDP will take up the position occupied by President Buhari.

Nazif, who is deputy national chairman of the PDP in the north, also said his party is sure to win most of the states in the region in 2023.

According to the politician, many Nigerians are not happy with the current government and its mode of administration and have decided to act against the APC in the election.
