Igbos Cannot Be Trusted With Presidency – Northern Group Speaks

Published

on

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNGs) has opposed the return to power to the Southeast region.

The group stated that Southeast politicians cannot be trusted with power because of their recent statements.

They also condemned Southeast leaders for insisting that power must return to the Southeast.

The spokesman for the CNGs, Abdulazeez Suleiman speaking to journalists at a press conference in Abuja, explained that Igbo elders are a serious threat to national security after they threatened to disrupt the peace of the nation if the next president of the country does not emerge from their region.

His words: “The Coalition of Northern Groups has taken stock of events in Nigeria, particularly in the past few months when our democracy, political unity, and national security have come under serious scrutiny, noting especially, the unrelenting violent disturbances created around certain interests of the Igbo people.

“This is confirmed by the utterances and actions of such Igbo leaders as the former Governor of Anambra State and Chairman of the Igbo Elders Consultative Forum, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, when he threatened the continued existence of Nigeria during a condolence visit paid to him by Igbo leaders of thought and traditional rulers on April 5, 2022.

 “Similarly, 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.

“As if these were not enough, 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.

 “The CNG observes that the perpetrators of this senseless violence are relentlessly pursuing the agenda of destruction and collective mayhem, fervently hoping it will engulf the entire country and bring about another civil war and mass killings.

“This has deepened the fears that the Igbo cannot and should never be trusted with presidential power and rendered their renewed desperation for the Igbo presidency suspect.”
