The Global Movement for Igbo President 2023, GLOMIP 2023 has to appeal to all political parties in Nigeria to immediately Zone the Presidential tickets to the South East part of the Country.
Coordinator, GLOMIP 2023 UK and Europe, Dr. Nnanna Igwe who made the appeal in London at the first International Press Conference aimed to sensitise Diaspora Nigerians and Non Nigerians to support Igbo Presidency come 2023 to enthrone equity, fairness, good governance and unity in the Country.
According to him, “Today Nigeria is a unfortunately facing monumental challenges and at the precipice of disintegration due to successive governments. Since independence in 1960, Hausa/ Fulani from the North have ruled for more than 40 years, the Yorubas for more than 10 years and South South 6 years and South East only 6months of military. Fellow Compatriots, you can see the glaring imbalance and this is why time has come to do the needful in 2023”.
“To save Nigeria, ladies and gentlemen and compatriots something urgent must be done. The restructuring of Nigeria must be done immediately, insecurities must be fully tackled urgently and power shift to South East of Nigeria in 2023 is ultra-sacrosanct. The problems of herdsmen attacks and killings, terrorism by Bokoharam, monumental corruption, rigging of elections, unemployment, underdevelopment, and lack of roads, poor education and health facilities must be Urgently tackled. The recent #ENDSARS peaceful youth protests almost lead to the collapse of the nation. It’s time to change for the better, it is time to correct the marginalization of the past and unite the nation for greater tomorrow”.
“At Independence, Nigeria stood on tripod of Igbo, Hausa/ Fulani and Yoruba, today only the Igbo nation has been denied the presidency of Nigeria. Why my fellow compatriots? What is good for goose is also good for the gander. Equity! Equity!! Equity!!!”.
He further noted that GLOMIP is passionate about fair play, equity, rule of law, justice, security, profound development of all regions of Nigeria, equity in power sharing, fairness in resource control, accountability, transparency, good governance and true democracy.
Maxi Godson Azu and other Speakers in there separate contributions said Nigeria as it stands today is the most diverse country in the globe with over 300 ethnic nations and more than 500 languages. The pre-independence agitation for Nigeria was predicted on patriotism, equity, justice, fairness, love, rule of law, democracy, peace, unity for progressive virile, one Nigeria. The foundation of Nigeria was based on principles of true federalism to address the problems resultant from amalgamation of Nigeria. It was wrongly envisaged that the nationalists who understand Nigeria would usher in good governance, transparency, accountability, equity, power shearing, resource control and fairness in the operation of Federalism.
The Global Movement for Igbo President 2023, GLOMIP 2023 was officially launched in Awka, Anambra State on 5th October 2020. The event was well attended and supported by eminent Nigerians from the Six Geopolitical Zones of the Country.
GLOMIP 2023 plans to have its Solidarity March in Awka on the 27th December 2020 to press forward their demands.
