The Anambra State Chapter of Ohaneze Ndigbo, says it remains resolute to seeing a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction come 2023.
The Organisation stated this when the EXCO members of Ohaneze Ndigbo in Anambra State paid a courtesy visit to the National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Oye, at his residence in Amawbia.
The group, led by the Anambra State Chairman of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, said that an Igbo President has become long overdue, noting that the visit to the APGA National Chairman was to solicit for his support in making the dream a reality.
Chief Okeke-Ogene also noted that the working relationship between the group and Anambra State Government has been mutually successful, commending Governor Willie Obiano for carrying the group along in all socio-political affairs of the state.
Responding, the National Chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Oye, noted that the struggle for an Igbo President is a collective enterprise that ndi Igbo must unitedly work for, adding that before an Igbo President could be produced, all Igbo national unions must show a genuine interest to the course.
Chief Oye said that the first step to achieving the dream is to form a formidable political force that would represent and fight for the Igbo cause, and also called for a wider consultation among major Igbo stakeholders.
The Anambra State Chairman of APGA, Sir Norbert Obi, who was also present at the function, noted that both groups have, over the years, developed a healthy mutual working pattern for a better Anambra State.
Also present to welcome the visitors was the Member Representing Njikoka Constituency Two at the Anambra State House of Assembly, Honourable Pete Ibida.
