Igbo Presidency 2023: Why Igbos Just Have To Believe

Nothing is 100 percent certain in politics, but you have to try. If Buhari is reelected, in 2023, the Igbo would have a bargaining chip that cannot be easily swept off the carpet, in that Igbo would be the only group that has not produced president in 4th Republic.
Yoruba have produced; Niger Delta have produced; the North would have completed Yar Ardua’s truncated tenure. It would then be difficult not to give it to the Igbo in 2023.

If we don’t play our cards right, by 2040, we may still be talking about Igbo Presidency, without much bargaining chips.

Tinubu And The Question Of Igbo Presidency In 2023

Tinubu is more sensitive to issues like this than we sometimes give him credit for.This is someone that abandoned his Vice Presidency ambition because he saw that a Muslim-Muslim ticket may create disafection among Christians. 


That is one reason he may not want to run with Atiku. In 2023, unless he decides to run with a Northern Christian, he may say “Let the Igbos run”.

Buhari And The Promise Of Igbo Presidency In 2023

Nothing is 100 percent certain in politics, but you have to try. If Buhari is reelected, in 2023, the Igbo would have a bargaining chip that cannot be easily swept off the carpet, in that Igbo would be the only group that has not produced president in 4th Reublic. 


Yoruba have produced; Niger Delta have produced; the North would have completed Yar Ardua’s truncated tenure. It would then be difficult not to give it to the Igbo in 2023.

If we don’t play our cards right, by 2040, we may still be talking about Igbo Presidency, without much bargaining chips.

Let Ohaneze, the Youths etc, begin to put our house in order, while voting for Buhari in 2019.

6 Reasons Buhari Is Relaxed About 2019

1. Tinubu can never join PDP, a party he bitterly fought against for 16 years. So, Atiku is without a powerful ally that can change the game.
2. Tinubu cannot drag Vice Presidency with his political son, Osinbajo. So, even if PDP offers him such, he will reject it.
3. Analysis shows that if Buhari runs with Osinbajo, Tinubu would have no choice but to remain in APC, as he cannot abandon Osinbajo and support another ticket.
4. No matter what, Tinubu would not want to leave APC, because if he leaves, he will lose the prestige of nominating the Vice President.
5. Governor Bindow of Adamawa would be used to tie Atiku down in a power struggle for Adamawa, distracting him. Remember the corruption case that was used to ‘distract’ Atiku in 2007 until very close to the election.
6. Buhari may hand over the remaining APC machinery in the South West to Tinubu. If Tinubu is happy in APC, chances of Buhari defeat in 2019 are drastically reduced. Gov Bindow will also keep Atiku bogged down in Adamawa

Who owns Lagos?

I have said it before, and I will say it again- Yoruba are the owners of Lagos.

Having said that, at no point did Governor Obiano say Igbos own Lagos. Yes, Igbos pay a lot of taxis in Lagos, and if Obiano wants to attract some of those billions back to Anambra, then good luck to him, but I know Ambode is very though, so it will not be easy for Obiano to divert investment from Lagos.

God bless Igbos, Yorubas and indeed, All Nigerians.
