Moghalu expressed that he was not sure if the ‘Fulani presidency’ had done anything good for the country, and hence Nigerians, Southeastern people especially, should focus on the race to produce the country’s next leader from the region rather than using the phrase which he considers as problematic.

He wrote:

“The phrase “Igbo presidency” is problematic. We should speak of a Nigerian President from the Southeast. Not sure what good the “Fulani presidency” has done the country, including the north. Emphasizing the ethnic origin without the national context is the wrong emphasis.”

According to him, ’emphasizing the ethnic origin without the national context is the wrong emphasis.’
