Orji Kalu has declared that the victory of an Igbo candidate in the 2023 presidential election will mark a definite end to Nigeria’s civil war that ended 50 years ago.
He said, “It is the right thing to do, Nigeria is built on a tripod. When you allow the South East to have the Presidency by 2023, that will be the end of the civil war.
“The South East has had the Chief of Army Staff, the Inspector General of Police. So it is only natural for the South East to have the Presidency.
“No man has the capacity to divide this country, the country will fight such a man. It is not possible, so the fear in the minds of people that the Igbo are pushing for secession only amounts to imbalance in perception.
“Take a look at Lagos State, Igbo have over fifty percent of investment here. Go to Abuja, almost seventy per cent of its investment are owed by Igbo.
“So, where are the Igbos going to go outside Nigeria. All these kind of talks are just blackmail. We should stop the blackmail.
“An Igbo president will bring prosperity to Nigeria, because the Igbo man or woman had the capacity for business and investment in areas outside their homeland.
“So, Igbo presidency is a thing the country should do with joy and pride in showcasing an Igbo man as President.”
