Nigeria Will Not Know Peace Until Igbo Becomes President – Jim Nwobodo

The former governor of old Anambra state, Senator Jim Nwobodo has called for Igbo presidency in 2023, saying “Nigeria will not know peace until an Igbo becomes president.”

Nwobodo made this assertion during his 79th birthday celebration which took place in Enugu, Vanguard reports.

He, however, also called on Ndigbo to come together and support anybody that is doing well to represent the south-east.

He also urged the judiciary to discharge their duties with justice saying that it’s only the judiciary that can prevent the country from collapsing.

He hailed Enugu state governor, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who he noted has brought politicians together in the state in peace.

Speaking at the event, the president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, described Ugwuanyi as a governor whose leadership knows no boundary.

He said that Ugwuanyi does not discriminate among political parties because he treats everybody equally.

Nwodo who was the chairman of the occasion said that Ugwuanyi would not say because one is not a member of his political party and for this reason will discriminate against him to deny him his due.

He said that since Ugwuanyi came to power, he has united the people of the state and this has brought peace to the state.

Prominent Nigerians at the event includes Chief Dubem Onyia, former minister of foreign affairs; Chief Osita Chidoka, former minister of aviation; Barth Nnaji, former minister of power; Chief Ike Ekweremadu, Deputy Senate President; Chief Frank Ogbewu, former minister of culture, amongst others.
