2023: Zone presidential ticket to southeast – Igbo forum tells PDP, others

A socio-political group, Ndigbo United Forum (NUF) has warned against denying the southeast region the chance to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.

The group also asked major political parties in Nigeria to zone their presidential tickets to the southeast in the interest of justice and equity.

In a statement made available to the press on Monday, by its Board of Trustees Chairman, Chief Chinedu Mba, the NUF frowned at a purported move by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to retain the position of her National chairmanship to southern Nigeria, and also, return its presidential ticket to Northern Nigeria.

According to the Igbo socio-political organization, “We can understand the dynamics of politics, but when political scheming tends to disregard the respect for sound Morals, it becomes a social monster that should be frowned upon. There must be limit to everything, even in politics. When politicians subscribe to a political resolution that is exploitative of their origin and roots, it renders such politicians as anathema to their people.

“PDP as is presently constituted, is a Southern dominated political party. Hence, her resolutions are supposed to mirror the resolutions of the Southern Governors Forum of May 11 in Asaba, July 5 in Lagos and September 16 in Enugu, wherein 2023 southern presidency was affirmed and re-affirmed. PDP coming up with a contrary resolution, will directly amount to betrayal, backstabbing and outright hypocrisy.

“For the fact that PDP is not the ruling party, it becomes abundantly clear that it is the Governors that call the shot. How then would the same Governors be saying one thing in the Southern Governors forum, and be acting the exact opposite in their political party? It is mind boggling”.

The NUF vowed that anything outside the demands is unacceptable for the entirety of all lovers of justice and equity across Nigeria, particularly in the southeast region.

The group further stressed in the statement, “We would not like it, if Governor Dave Umahi’s claim is to be proven accurate, that the Peoples Democratic Party does not regard the southeast region, despite her unprecedented faithfulness to the party. No region in Nigeria has been as faithful and loyal to PDP, like the southeast.

“The NUF would want Peoples Democratic Party to prove Governor Umahi wrong, by doing what is Morally right, and politically expedient. We call on APC, PDP, YPP, AA etc, to zone their presidential tickets to southeast Nigeria. It is a call that is firmly anchored on the transcendental principle of moral justice and fairness, “it concluded.

According to popular stage actor, Segun Adefila, the deceased was knocked down by the military vehicle illegally using a BRT lane on Ikorodu Road while he was on his way to work.

“Ifeanyin was a young Nigerian artist who was diminutive in stature but gigantic in strides. His life was one huge struggle for survival without a thought for crime but through a dint of hard work,” Adefila posted on Facebook.

“He was a prominent member of the Bariga Artists Forum (BAF) and Guild of Nigerian Dance Practitioners (GONDP). He was also a founding member of Dachrismofa Art Troupe and an alumnus of Feetprints Africa and the assistant director of Kings and Queens Art Academy- a children focused theatre group.

“His creative energy lit up every gathering he attended. Born on the 15th of July 1990, Ifeanyi was the second son of his economically disadvantaged family and the fourth child. He was a major breadwinner of the family, a bread not only rarely gotten but also never buttered.

“Their mother and matriarch of the Kalu clan passed on on the 27th of August 2021. On October 20, 2021, Ifeanyin’s life was cut short on the express way of Ikorodu Road. He lived with his aged father and 6 siblings and left them at home on that fateful day for a job he just secured. He was on his way to a school (Temple Schools, Ilupeju) where he was helping to teach the pupils cultural dance and music.

“A Nigerian Air Force vehicle traveling on a BRT lane knocked him down. Ifeanyin’s body is still in the Nigerian Air Force base mortuary. Ifeanyin’s mum is also still in another mortuary. His bereaved family who are definitely inconsolable at the moment also stands the risk of not getting any form of tangible compensation from those whose vehicle knocked him down.”
