The President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Nnia Nwodo, has said that Nigeria will witness a turnaround in fortune if an Igbo man emerges President of the country in 2023.
Nwodo said this in a congratulatory message he sent to Nigerian-born Kelechi Madu, the newly appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General in Alberta, Canada.
In the congratulatory message signed by Emeka Attamah, his media adviser, Nwodo said Madu’s achievement in Canada shows that if an Igbo man is elected as President in 2023, Nigeria will be transformed.
He appealed to the Federal Government to stop marginalizing and victimizing the Igbos in the country so that their latent creative potentials could be harnessed for the good of all Nigerians.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo is highly honoured by the exploits of Kaycee Madu in far away Canada as an Igbo son. Mr Madu had contested and won a seat into the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, representing the electoral district of Edmonton-South West from where he was appointed and sworn in as Minister of Justice and Solicitor General by the Premier of Alberta, Jason Kenney, on April 30, 2020.
On behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, I commend the sterling qualities of Mr Kaycee Madu, as well as other Igbo sons and daughters who have excelled so much outside the country, such as the recently appointed first black Vice Chancellor of Leeds Trinity University in the UK, Prof Charles Egbu, and many others.
The exploits of Igbo sons and daughters both within and outside the country are indices of the cerebral capability and ingenuity of the people which Nigeria could exploit to advance its development.
The Federal Government should stop marginalising and victimising the Igbo in the country so that the latent creative potentials could be harnessed for the good of all.
Nigeria would witness a turn around in her fortunes if a president of Igbo extraction was allowed to emerge in 2023.” he said.
