Goddy Uwazurike, former President of think tank group, Aka Ikeenga has blasted Igbos supporting Buhari’s re-election bid with hope that it would usher in an Igbo Presidency in 2023.
He said those Igbo elite seeking support for Buhari’s re-election next year are sycophants and dwelling in the moon, saying Buhari has done nothing to deserve a second term.
Speaking with the Sun, the former President of the Igbo group said the Igbo elite should stop living in false hope of getting president slot in 2023 after Buhari’s second term because even Mr President cannot guarantee that. “APC doesn’t believe in zoning, but the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) believes in zoning”, says Uwazurike.
“Now, what is going on in APC? It took a little leakage by the Senate President to show that the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is eyeing the presidency in 2023. But all these time, the impression given by all those sycophants who pointed their father’s compound with a left hand was that it was agreed. I don’t listen to them”.
“Let me put it this way. Igboland has no place in the government of President Muhammadu Buhari and has no place in APC. None of those who are bandying these words will ever show face in Buhari’s kitchen cabinet. None of them is in the decision making group in the APC”.

“Let me give you a small angle. The brain behind the merger that brought APC is Dr Ogbonnaya Onu. But when they were to take some key decisions, he was not even invited. So, APC as a party is just Northwest and Southwest; every other person is a joiner. That was why they complained and grumbled when people from the Northeast seemed to be having a good say. So, Igboland has no place in this government and there is no plan to bring us in, in 2023”.
“The struggle for power by all those people using the name of Buhari is nothing but selfish agenda. Let me put it bluntly. They are saying, ‘vote for me because I will make Buhari to give you something in 2023.’ When Buhari came into power, he made 40 appointments before appointing one Igboman in Ibe Kachikwu”.
“I remember myself, Tunji Braithwaite of blessed memory, and Chief Ayo Adebanjo condemning it on Channels Television. Tunji Braithwaite was so angry that he said, ‘look, they are saying you don’t have anybody, but Ogbonnaya Onu brought everybody together.
“This is a zone that has been grossly marginalised.’ I quoted the old man; he has gone. So, in this country today, we are doing siddon look in APC; but our destiny is in our hands. If you know an Igboman very well, he believes he can do it for himself. All he is saying is give me a level playing ground.
