The South East Chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has opened up on plans by some high profile persons from a part of the county to frustrate Igbo Presidency in 2023.
The region is staking a claim to the Nigerian Presidency in 2023 after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The leaderhip of the party which met at the Uburu country home of Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, said those opposed to the move are not relenting in thwarting the Igbo aspiration.
Speaking at the meeting, the South East Vice Chairman of APC, Emma Eneukwu, said there are threats from different quarters to ensure that “they stop us in 2023 at all costs”
“They lose sight of the fact that power comes from God. If God says that you will not achieve a particular target, you will not achieve it; no matter what you do.
“But, I know that the God we serve will not watch our own share pass us by.
“He will not allow other people to take away what belongs to us. We understand that power is not given but taken.
“So, while everybody says that it is the turn of Ndigbo in 2023, we have to work for it because every other person is entitled to contest. But, the sentiment that is there is that people would say that these people (Igbo) have not ruled before,” he added.
Eneukwu further appealed to members of the party to continue working for the reelection bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, Buhari would pave way for Ndigbo in 2023.
