Obasanjo suggests that an Igbo President is what Nigeria needs

The remaining geo-political zones that have not produced presidents have been told they should have a taste of it in the interest of justice and fairness.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo expressed this view yesterday and that the Southeast should produce a President as Ogun West Senatorial District in Ogun State should also produce a governor soon.

He disclosed this when the leadership of Ogun State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishop Tunde-Akin Akinsanya and other people visited him at his Hilltop home for a special New Year service.

According to him, in justice and neglect lie the instigators of conflicts along with ethnic and regional lines in the country.

Obasanjo said it was part of his resolve for a just and fair country that informed his decision to work for a Southsouth President in 2009.

He said: “Irrespective of the thinking of the people ahead of 2019, I personally think that Southeast should have a go at the Presidency too.

“The same is happening here. If Ijebu and Egba have produced the governor, it is only fair and just to allow the Yewa or Ogun West to also produce a governor. Or else, one day, they will also stand up and take up arms against this injustice against them. That is my personally position on this.”
