A former presidential adviser, Mr Tanko Yakasai has revealed what the Igbo Ethnic Group must do in order to produce the country’s president in 2023.

In a recent interview on Channels Television, Yakasai said the Igbos must secure the blessing of other parts of the country, especially the North, in order to rule.

The 94-year-old said: “There is a good opportunity for Igbos to produce the president of Nigeria in the near future or later. The political arrangement in the country is such that you need correlation with some parts of the North and South. The Igbo can make a move of getting partners from other parts of the country, in particular, the North.

“It is not just to complain; meaningful efforts should be made to reach out to get partners so that eventually they will realise their aspirations, and I think they can.”

The Igbo, one of the largest ethnic groups in Nigeria, have never produced a civilian president.

I Never Said I’ll Probe My Predecessors — Gov Uzodinma

Published

on

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has debunked rumours making rounds in the state that he planned to probe his predecessors.

Governor Uzodinma disclosed this after inspecting some structures at the government house in Owerri.

The Governor said even though the business of governance includes probing and accountability, his directive to the Accountant-General of the state and the officials of the civil service to furnish him with the financial statement of the state may have been misconstrued.

“When I asked for a status report from all the ministries, many people misunderstood it or assumed that the purpose of calling for that information is because I want to probe; I never said that I was going to probe anybody.

“The business of governance involves probing if need be; so I needed that information because there is no official handover from anybody, and for me to start the work, I need to know what is on the ground.”

He said since there’s been no proper handover from the immediate past government, if during an investigation and for proper accountability there’s need to call on anyone for Questioning as it deems fit, the Government will not hesitate to do so, but he hasn’t made any pronouncement of probing anyone. He urges the media to get accurate facts and statements before publishing.

“We will start and in the course of doing our business, if there are things that require investigation, we will subject them to an investigation. My business here is to govern the people, and in the process, if there is any need for any particular issue to be investigated or probed I will do that, but let nobody begin to speak for me because I have not said that yet.”

On the state of infrastructure in the government house, he said the government will begin renovation as soon as possible to enable the business of governance kick start in earnest.

In a meeting with members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at his Abuja residence on Saturday January 18, Emeka Ihedioha stated that he pities those celebrating his loss at the Supreme Court as they are not good students of democracy.

The sacked Governor of Imo State also disclosed that he is waiting for answers. He said: “The elections in Imo were closely monitored, well advertised and everybody in Nigeria followed it through. The results were very clear, the electoral umpire still has the results.

“It is not about Emeka Ihedioha. It is not about Imo State. It is about the future of our country and democracy. It’s about what do we do tomorrow. .. I am calm and we are calm, and that is why you see in Imo, there is calmness.

“The calmness is coming out of shock, it is coming of disbelief. It is coming out of the fact that people are saying, let us still see, can this be possible? We are waiting for answers and I believe there will be answers.
