Goodluck Jonathan called upon for the 2023 Presidency.
The National Coordinator of the Ijaw Monitoring Group, IMG, Comrade Joseph Evah, has said that the South-South region has already informed former President, Goodluck Jonathan, to get ready to run for the 2023 Presidency, Page 36 learnt.
Joseph Evah made this known in a no-holds-barred interview on Sunday.
When asked if he still holds the view that the South-East should produce the 2023 Presidency, he said:
“I think that should be the decision of all Nigerians, all lovers of unity, equity, etc. That has been our slogan and we hope that the South East themselves should encourage themselves because we do not want to say if they do not want it the Leadership should go back to the North. We will not say so. But if the South East is not prepared any other Southern part of Nigeria will take over. I have called the South East Leaders over and over and I have been warning them, if they are not ready, if they continue to play gamble like the way they did when they were given the position of the Senate President, when they will produce not less than five Senate Presidents as if they are out of their minds. This is time they have to organise themselves well because we don’t want such insult again where they will be attacking their own without caution.
“They allow themselves to be used against their own, they should wake up to the reality of the moment. If they continue with such sell-out character they will shoot themselves in the foot. Was it not recently that one stupid group went to register with the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC? These are people that are supposed to be flogged naked. Those people who went to the CAC they are supposed to line all of them up and flog them naked because they are betrayers of Igbo land, they are traitors and what they are doing is to crumble any agitation to get the Presidency in Igbo land in 2023, that is their mission.”
“All those characters are being sponsored in other to frustrate Igbo Presidency, I hope they know? If the Igbo will not check themselves and talk to themselves if possible carry out deliverance service on all those people and their ilk that went to CAC to register another parallel Ohanaeze Ndigbo. They should cast out the betrayal demon in them, I expected all the General Overseers in Igbo land to rise up to this spiritual challenge. Those people need healing, they need demonic deliverance. How can some people wake up one day and say they want to go and register another Ohanaeze Ndigbo group? They should see those people as traitors that they are. So, with all this, you can see that perhaps the Igbo house is divided. And if the Igbo house is divided we will not still allow the North to come and hijack the Presidency again, no, no way. If Ndigbo is not ready any other Southern part of the country will be welcomed to take it. There is a saying that you can force the horse to the stream, but you cannot force the horse to drink water. We want to ensure that Ndigbo gets the Presidency in 2023, so they should resist their children who are displaying this sell-out character.
“They should stop selling out their political destiny. This is the right time for Ndigbo to also become the President of Nigeria. Nobody can say again or call us, the Niger Delta people second class citizens because of the honour that our son Jonathan has given to us. Nobody will call a Niger Delta citizen second class. We have produced the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. In those days they call us second class citizens, but not now anymore. Jonathan’s Presidency has cancelled that insult, that abomination in the history of Nigeria. Ndigbo should put their house in order, so that their children’s children will be proud of what they did, to cancel their identity from that of a second class citizen as some perceive it today. If the Igbo are not ready for the Presidency we will scout for any other person from the South to warm up. We don’t even care to ask Jonathan to come back, to come and complete his second term. We are already telling Jonathan to prepare, he should not be afraid, he should be courageous.
“If the Igbo are not ready, we will show up, after all, we were also part of the old Eastern region, so Jonathan will continue with his second term, and we are going to back him. We are surprised at the drama that the Igbo are playing now. How can some people go to register another parallel group against their apex organisation? It is the height of betrayal.”
