Okorocha’s comment followed former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s advice that Ndigbo should go for the slot in 2019. The governor rejected the advice, noting that the Presidency has been zoned to the North for two terms of eight years (2015-2023), hence, Ndigbo should exercise patience till 2023.

Okorocha bared his mind on the Presidency when he visited Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in Abuja on Monday.

Reacting over governor Okorocha’s comment, the Founder of IYM, Evang. Elliot Ugochukwu-Uko, said the governor has not shown any evidence of good leadership.

“Leaders advance the wishes and the good of their people like Ojukwu, M.I. Okpara and Nnamdi Kanu.

Leaders live in the heart of their people, nobody takes Okorocha serious in Igboland.

“Ndigbo, like 80 per cent of Nigerians, want to see a restructured Nigeria anchored on regional autonomy and true fiscal federation built on justice and equity,” the group said.
