Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, the founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, has trivialized the call for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction.
Uwazuruike disclosed he doesn’t believe in the idea of Igbo Presidency, pleading that such should be gotten rid of. He contended this while hosting Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State and a Presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Owerri, Imo State on Saturday, the Easterner reports.
The MASSOB founder said the race for who is to become Nigeria’s next president should be thrown open.
Uwazuruike urged Nigerians to repel zoning because it has no place in the country’s constitution.
According to Uwazuruike, zoning leads to sectionalism of some regions of the country.
He said: “I don’t believe in the idea of zoning system or Igbo president because zoning means sectionalism.
“If we want to talk about Nigeria, we must throw the presidential contest open but if you throw it open, it must be for the youths not elders, because the elders have disappointed us.”
