BIAFRA! Ohanaeze Ndigbo Eyes Presidency In 2023
Bounce News had once said Biafra Kingdom Might Not Come and this seems to be the situation now.
While some are busy pushing for the actualisation of the dream, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, an Igbo socio-cultural group, has something else in mind for the South-East Region.
The group on Sunday urged its people living in the north to court more friends so as to actualise the ethnic group’s quest to produce Nigeria’s President in 2023.
The call was contained in a communique issued at the end of a meeting of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the 19 northern states and Abuja.
The meeting held in Minna, Niger State.
The communique restated the group's resolve to promote one indivisible Nigeria with equal opportunities for all, and urged Igbo people resident in the north to live in harmony with their host communities.
It lauded the contributions of Mr John Nwodo, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, toward a united and prosperous Nigeria, and urged him to continue to defend the interest of the people.
The cultural group extended its hands of fellowship to other Igbo associations the world over, and called for more unity in the pursuit of Nigeria’s presidency in 2023.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 44 chapters of the group, drawn from across the 19 states of the north, attended the meeting.

This is coming at a time that the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mr Nnamdi Kanu, who is pushing for the actualisation of the Biafra dream, is in hiding or even missing.
He disappeared after the Nigerian military laid siege to his residence in Aba when an operation, Egwu Eke II, was launched in the region to quell increasing agitations.
