The leader of Afenifere Socio-political group, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, has said that Igbo should be given the mantle of the country’s leadership in 2023 for the sake of unity.
Adebanjo said this when he appeared on the morning show of ARISE TV, on Thursday.
Adebanjo also claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari was not concerned about the unity of Nigeria.
According to him, Buhari failed to address the issue of restructuring in his Independence Day address to the nation.
Adebanjo pointed out that he does not hate Buhari, but only interested in a leader that would keep the country as a united nation.
He lamented that the 1999 constitution foisted on the country by the military made Buhari the most powerful president in the world.
Asked if he sees the possibility of the presidency returning to the South-West in 2023, Adebanjo said, “You talk about unity, that is where you will know where the sincerity lies.
“If you are keen about unity, will there be a unit of the country that you will deprive presidency? What does that mean for unity?
“We are talking about people who want Nigeria to stay together. How can anybody who loves this country talk of the presidency coming to the South-west in 2023.
“That’s why I tell you all these people are not serious, including Buhari. Why should you exclude the South-east? Is South-east not part of Nigeria?
“South-west has had, South-south has had, the North has had, why exclude the South-east if you want them to be there? That is the point I was making earlier on.”
