2023 Election: Why Igbos Are Not Worthy Of Being Trusted With Authority – CNG Spokesperson


The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has stated that the Igbos cannot be trusted with authority ahead of the 2023 Presidential election.

CNG Spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman claimed Igbos could not be trusted with authority because their elders represented a national threat following their recent vow to disrupt Nigeria if they failed to deliver the country’s next president.

Suleiman told media in Abuja, yesterday that, the same Igbo Elders who demanded the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, were also campaigning for the presidency in 2023.

He said that, groups of Igbo leaders and elders have engaged in desperate covert and overt efforts to secure the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the IPOB terror group standing trial for crimes against the state.

According to him, the same group of Igbo elders again recklessly issued a national security threat on May 4, 2022, that any attempt to elude the zone of the Presidency in 2023 may rupture the existence of Nigeria as a corporate entity as well as aggravate crisis, conflicts, separatist demands, and others.

He noted that, this had deepened the fears that, the Igbo cannot and should never be trusted with presidential power.

Suleiman reiterated that, South-East had been agitating for the Presidency in 2023, adding that stakeholders from the South-East and other parts of the country insisted that 2023 was the region’s turn to produce the country’s president but they weren’t ready.
