Ohanaeze Ndigbo President, Nnia Nwodo has said that the Nation of Nigeria will be transformed if an Igbo man gets elected as Nigeria’s president in 2023.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that the President of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group said this in a congratulatory letter to man who was newly appointed Solitor General in Alberta,Canada, Kelechi Madu.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo President said Kelechi Madu’s achievement shows that if a South East man gets to lead this nation there will be a fundamental transformation in the country. He appealed to the Buhari led Federal Government to stop marginalizing them and harness the latent creative potential they possess.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo is highly honoured by the exploits of Kaycee Madu in far away Canada as a South East Nigeria son. Mr Madu had contested and won a seat into the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, representing the electoral district of Edmonton-South West from where he was appointed and sworn in as Minister of Justice and Solicitor General by the Premier of Alberta, Jason Kenney, on April 30, 2020.
On behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, I commend the sterling qualities of Mr Kaycee Madu, as well as other Igbo sons and daughters who have excelled so much outside the country, such as the recently appointed first black Vice Chancellor of Leeds Trinity University in the UK, Prof Charles Egbu, and many others.
The exploits of Igbo sons and daughters both within and outside the country are indices of the cerebral capability and ingenuity of the people which Nigeria could exploit to advance its development.
The Federal Government should stop marginalising and victimising the Igbo in the country so that the latent creative potentials could be harnessed for the good of all.
Nigeria would witness a turn around in her fortunes if a president of Igbo extraction was allowed to emerge in 2023.” he said
