Speaking in Minna, Niger State, yesterday, after a one-day meeting of the group, Amaechi said the region hassuffered marginalisation and neglect for too long.
“Virtually every Nigerian agrees that there is injustice in the country, especially against the South East, but what every Nigerian has not agreed is what to do to address the injustice.
“Some have called for restructuring, some for devolution of power, all these still boil down to restructuring and the reason for this is that one region has not been recognised as belonging to Nigeria,”
“We want every Nigerian to be happy, I want to say that injustice to a Nigerian is injustice to all irrespective of tribe or creed. It does not matter where the person comes from, once a Nigerian suffers injustice, it should be a concern to all,” he added.
He insisted that an Igbo presidency in 2023 will end various agitations in the South East.
“Nigerians should support Igbo presidency in 2023, as the only way to douse growing tension in the South East.”
“We want to produce the president of Federal Republic of Nigeria and not Biafra and this reminds everybody that we are not talking of Biafra this time,” he said.
Amaechi said with such ambition, the Igbo has to build bridges of friendship between Igbo and their various communities.
“At the end of this meeting, I can assure you of the Igbo presidency in 2023,” he said.
