THE Vice President-General of Ọhaneze Ndịgbo Worldwide, Chief Damian Okeke- Ogene has urged political gladiators to support the present drive to produce the President of Igbo extraction.
Speaking in Awka, Chief Okeke-Ogene said this would provide a permanent solution to most challenges confronting the country.
Our correspondent has reports that Chief Okeke-Ogene noted that while it is within the constitutional right of individuals to seek any political position they are qualified for, Nigerians have moral obligation to support Ndịgbo to produce the next President of the country in the spirit of fairness, equity and good conscience.
He noted that an Igbo President will use his enterprising disposition and sense of industry to accelerate over all development of the country without relying on oil revenue as well as ensure political stability and end to agitations and youth restiveness.
Chief Okeke-Ogene said that when every part of the country is given a sense of belonging, complain of marginalization will become a thing of the past and the country will work towards actualizing true federalism that will encourage competition and higher productivity among the federating units.
The President-General challenged Ndịgbo to produce credible candidates that will have national acceptance and have ability to effectively compete with others and assured that Ọhaneze Ndịgbo will give them necessary backing to succeed.
In his reaction, a Community Leader Chief Joseph Ezekwe observed that Ndịgbo have qualified and quality leaders capable of making the desired change but cautioned against pulling him down syndrome among politicians.
