Why Igbo Must Produce Next President- Taraba Governor, Darius Ishaku

Igbo presidency has gotten more support from another top Northern leader. The Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku has backed Igbo presidency.

NAIJA NEWS NG reports that he said Igbos have a legitimate aspiration but warned that the geo-political zone should also stop promoting secession .

“We must not do anything that would undermine our existence as one united country,” the Governor warned as quoted by Sun.

“So, I support that the zoning arrangement should be allowed to continue so that everybody can have a taste of the pudie.

“I believe that the Igbo have a legitimate aspiration, but what makes their case bad is the threat they always subjected the country to through their agitation for Biafra.

“Biafra is an unfortunate development in the past and it belongs to the past and people should not be rubbing that on our faces,” he added.

He said Nigeria had passed the stage where somebody should be threatened, insisting that if the Igbo “want the rest of the country to trust them and support their presidential bid, they should stop this agitation and caution their children.”

Governor Ishaku said most of the leading the agitation for Biafra independence were not born during the war “and they do not know the cost of war and the psychological implications of war.”

Ishaku advised that the Igbo must not “be reminding Nigerians of Biafra” but instead demand for the presidency, which, according to him, “they have the right to demand for it because they are legitimate Nigerians.”
