Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has shown support to the realisation of an Igbo Presidency.

In a statement he made in Onitsha, Anambra State during a visit to the governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano on Sunday, he called on Igbos to build bridges with other parts of the country to enable them win the presidential seat come 2023.
He said the realization of the project would give Igbo people a sense of belonging in the Nigerian nation and serve as compensation for their loss during the civil war.

“Igbo man has never led the country and it is a sad thing for some of us that no Igbo man has ever ruled the country. It is one of the things that should be done to ensure stability

“It is realisable, and it is incumbent on the people of the South East to ensure they win the support of people of other regions. A lot of work needs to be done. It (Igbo presidency) is due and will go a long way to stop agitations and make the Igbo feel they are part and parcel of Nigeria

“We can ameliorate the pains of the past and make up for it. No part of Nigeria has ever lost over three million people in a crisis, so it can serve as compensation. If it is going to be achieved, we must ensure we win support in all parts of the country,” he said.

“We were in Enugu yesterday (Saturday) and will be going to five other states before going back to Abuja. I am here to see what has been going on in Anambra, interact with the governor and see things that are going on here.

“I am here as a member of the PDP and for me, it is not about party, but about how well the state governor has been able to take the state. I can confess that I have seen a lot of what your governor is doing here. Before now, the state was rife with kidnapping and other violent crimes. I urge Anambra people to remember what the state was before Obiano came, and appreciate him.

“We should encourage Obiano. I have seen good development in terms of the international airport being constructed by the governor. We just ran down the runway and it is the longest runway in the country. And it is the biggest in the country so far.

“The project will dwarf every other airport in the country and also draw development to the state. I am a former aviation minister, and I should be able to tell you about the project I saw on the ground. I am sorry that the governor is packaging it (airport) as a surprise, and I have let the cat out of the bag


  1. It is really long overdue for the Igbos to have a shot on the seat of presidency of Nigeria
    No Igbo man has ever taken that position
    The Yorubas have sat on that sit, the Hausas as in Fulanis and the South South people
    The high level of marginalization is clearly seen by all dick and harry against the South eastern part of the country
    This is what is leading to this agitations here and there by the Igbos
    I think that if an Igbo man or woman is allowed to assume this position, it will seriously help to dowse the tension in this country
    I congratulate Femi Fani Kayode in all he has said
    We are watching to see how it goes

  2. What we need in this country is unification wether Yoruba, hausa or igbo. If and only if we are United We will achieve mile stones, everything will progress according but selfish people didn’t stand by this unification. Ffk should stop playing politics with Nigerians, if said with Igbo, so if you visit Yoruba tomorrow you will say that Yoruba is sososo. God help us.

  3. Igbo too should have the love of the country (Nigeria) in their hearts not drum for division, if they can do this one day they will surely attain this position. Their leaders should come together and reunite with other tribes in order to move the country forward.
