Why Igbo man can never be Nigeria’s President - Junaid Mohammed

A Second Republic lawmaker, Dr Junaid Mohammed, has hinted that Igbo presidency will never come to reality in Nigeria. He said Igbos are using the agitation for Biafra to blackmail the North into ceding the 2019 presidency to them. Junaid Mohammed.

Mohammed made this known in a chat with the Sun, insisting that such move will only prevent the South East from producing Nigeria’s president because ‘democracy is a game of numbers’.

Mohammed further maintained that Igbos caused the Civil war that claimed the lives of over one million people, even as he wondered why the same people who caused the Civil war will now turn around to demand for Presidency.

He said, “The Igbo are clamouring for an additional state, one of the reasons they are now talking about Biafra, even though the real reason is that they want to blackmail the North, to concede presidency to them.

“By this means, they will never get any hope for presidency because democracy is a game of numbers. You cannot tell people to vote for you because you are being irresponsible.

“You caused the civil war that claimed over one million people, you will now come back and demand as a right that you must have a president. Is it democracy they are talking about or secession?”

In a related development, the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign States of Biafra, MASSOB, has urged Igbos to stop aspiring for Presidency in Nigeria.

Junaid MohammedAccording to the group, the idea of Igbo presidency was a fuss that will never come to reality in the country.

Addressing newsmen in Aba, MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Sunny Okereafor, urged Ndigbo to continue to be steadfast in their support for the agitation for an independent state of Biafra and resist the efforts by the federal government to play Ndigbo against themselves to scuttle Biafra.

Okereafor insisted that the future of Ndigbo lies in the actualization of an independent state of Biafra which will be free of marginalization and nepotism as well as promotion of one religion above the other.

He said: “Ndigbo should beware that there is nothing like Igbo presidency in Nigeria. It will never work. They have started promising that an Igbo man will become president in 2019 or 2023, but this is just another game to curry the support of the Igbo man for the next election.

“Whether in 2019, 2023 or 2027, no Igbo man can become president in Nigeria. Is this not the same promise they made to handover to Dr. Alex Ekwueme in 1987? Did it come to pass? The Nigerian federation is highly structured Ndigbo; there is too much hostility and hatred against the Igbo man in Nigeria.

“Where is the place of the Igbo man in Nigeria? Ndigbo are third class citizens. Now, Igbo governors are queuing up over who will become Vice President to the North. It is a shame, MASSOB won’t allow this to continue. Any Igbo man dreaming about becoming the president of Nigeria is only deceiving himself. The future of the Igbo man lies in the actualization of Biafra.”
