An elder statesman and former Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi has advised that Igbos should not be taken for granted and be allowed to go for the presidency .
Amaechi was reacting to comments made by Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha at APC South East mega rally in Owerri where he said Igbo political future is predicated on the re- election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
He told Vanguard “Amaechi said, “I know they (Presidency) do not mean what they said concerning Igbo presidency.
“Even though it looks certain that a northerner would become the next president, such a president should not take Igbo for granted as it is at present.
“Instead of taking Igbo for granted, they should allow Igbo to go, even though I do not support any breakaway.
“I love Nigeria and that was why I fought for her independence and even went to prison, although all that I did are not appreciated by successive Nigerian governments.”
