Jonathan Vatsa say’s igbo presidency, a right not privilege


An All Progressives Congress chief in Niger State, Jonathan Vatsa , has said the emergence of Nigeria ’ s President from the South – East in 2023 is a right and not a privilege .

Addressing journalists in Minna , Niger State capital on Friday, Vatsa , who is a former Niger State commissioner for Information , Culture and Tourism, said every well -meaning Nigerian , good Christian and Muslim must support a President of Nigeria of South – East extraction.

“If Nigerians have conscience , equity and justice demand that they should allow the Igbo to produce the next President in 2023 .

“ I am convinced that the Igbo have made their consultations from the North , South and the majority of them are in support of a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction. ”

He expressed displeasure that some politicians from the North had called for the cancelation of rotational presidency between the North and South for what they termed meritocracy .

Vatsa said Ndigbo were highly detribalised and could be found in the remotest villages in Nigeria, living peacefully and doing their businesses and paying taxes .

He condemned the Arewa agitation for power to remain in the north , saying , “ A lot of Arewa officials have been speaking that power should remain in the North as if it is their birthright; Nigeria belong to all of us and it is bigger than what we think it is. In the spirit of fairness, if we really want to be together , the Igbo should be given a chance in 2023 .

“ Apart from the time of Dr Nnamdi Azikwe and General Aguiyi Ironsi , we have never had Igbo President ; so the Igbo should rise up and take what is due to them .

The northerners are ready to support them and I am calling on the Igbo to speak with one voice if they must win in 2023 .

They must come together and forget their differences . ”

He however warned that the Igbo should watch out for those who would collect money either from the north or South – West to sell their conscience, adding that the Igbo man should not be treated as second citizens in Nigeria .
