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
“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.
