A First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazurike Amaechi, has said that unlike the Yorubas who are working so hard towards the 2023 presidency, the Igbos were not taking it seriously.
According to Amaechi, “Power is not given on a platter of gold” and “there is no section in Nigerian construction that talked about rotation of power”, hence the Igbos should wake up and show some seriousness.
Amaechi disclosed this to New Telegraph yesterday, in Awka, Anambra State.
He said, “Power is not given on a platter of gold and the idea that Igbos will produce the next President of Nigeria in 2023 is not sacrosanct because there is no section in Nigerian construction that talked about rotation of power.
“The Yorubas are serious about this and they are working hard to get it and I expect our people in Igbo land to work hard and show seriousness.
“Our politicians in the South-East should wake up and show that we are interested but the Yoruba are more serious than us.
“If tomorrow the position goes to the South West we do not have anybody to blame because they deserve it going by the way they are fighting the agenda.”
