2023 presidency will be a master stroke against Igbo marginalization-Okwesilieze Nwodo


The former national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Okwesilieze Nwodo says giving the South East geopolitical zone a chance to produce the president of Nigeria in 2023 would be the master stroke to end marginalization and all grievances in the zone.

Nwodo, a former governor of Enugu State, also called on the leaders of thought from South East to continuously engage leaders of other zones on the need to give the Igbo a chance to produce a president of Nigeria in order to end the obvious marginalization of the zone from the scheme of things in Nigeria.

He also condemned the modus operandi of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, being floated by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, Nnamdi Kanu, adding that there was no need for starting a fight one was sure to lose.

Nwodo, equally described as tragic, the blatant marginalization of the Igbos which also reflected in the recent promotion of high-ranking police officers by the Police Service Commission, PSC, saying that South East would continue to voice out the exclusion of the zone in juicy appointments since the beginning of the present All Progressives Congress, APC-led federal government.
