The Buhari South East Youth Movement [BSEYM] has accused the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of working against the emergence of President of Igbo extraction.
According to the group, by its recent zoning, PDP has automatically ruled out the possibility an Igbo man becoming the President of Nigeria, saying that singular act has shown that the party does not regard Ndigbo.
Zoning “seriously goes against the spirit of justice, fairness and equity in the rotation of power between the North and South”, a statement jointly signed by BSEYM’s director-general Engr. Nwabueze Onwuneme and the publicity secretary, Comrade Igwe Samuel Obinna, said.
“Peradventure the PDP succeeds, it will extend the Igbo Presidency project to year 2027 from the earlier year 2023 been projected for the emergence of a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction, which would now leave the North there for twelve years as against eight years been projected by the APC,” the group said.
It, therefore urged Ndigbo to reject PDP, noting that “by the end of President Muhammad Buhari’s second tenure it will then be ripe for the Igbos as the only ethnic nationality in southern Nigeria yet to produce an elected President after both the South-west and south-south have all had their shots on the Presidency of the nation”.
