George Obiozor, president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, says an Igbo presidency is the key agenda of the group as 2023 draws closer.
Obiozor made the comment on Tuesday while speaking during an Arise TV programme.
He said it is time the wheel of power spins the way of the Igbo, saying it has never been more timely.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo leader said the group is ready to negotiate with other regions to ensure the agenda comes to fruition.
“We support Igbo president with open arms. It is the most important thing that will happen to Igbos. Finally, it is our turn. And we are going to work it so hard,” Obiozor said
“We will talk to other parts of Nigeria to give us a chance. Because it is right, reasonable, deserving and timely. It is wonderful to consider it done by this time. Igbo presidency is our agenda.”
Obiozor also said it is not all members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that are seeking to secede from Nigeria.
He said some of them just want to bring attention to the marginalisation and deprivation that the Igbo are suffering.
“Who told you all the people in IPOB want secession? They want justice. Just like the rest of Igbos”, Obiozor said.
“They want the country’s attention to the relative deprivation that Igbos are facing; to the glass ceilings that prevent Igbos from certain goals within their own country. That’s what IPOB and Biafra people are talking about.”
