Prominent personalities from Igbo extraction under the aegis of Igbo Elders Consultative Forum, on Wednesday, threatened to sanction politician from South East who agrees to be Vice President to any Presidential candidate in 2023.

The South East Elders insisted that the South-East geo-political zone must produce the next President of Nigeria.

According to them, it would be either the South-East is allowed to produce Nigeria’s next president in 2023 or the region would quit Nigeria.

The Chairman of IECF and former Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, stated these during a press briefing in Abuja.

Among those present at the briefing were a former Minister of Education; Prof. Ihechukwu Madubuike; Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo (FCT chapter), Dr. Kingsley Nkonye; His Royal Majesty, Igwe Ibe Nwosu, and several leading Igbo scholars and traditional title holders.

The Secretary of IECF, Prof. Charles Nwekeaku, warned that any political party that does not zone its presidential ticket to the South-East will lose the region’s votes.

“We are waiting for them (political parties), as they will meet their Waterloo this time if they insist on shortchanging the Southeast people this rare opportunity of producing a credible, patriotic, detribalized, and dynamic president of Nigeria in 2023”, he said.
