“If Igbos are denied presidency, Nigeria will hear from them” – Ex PSC Chairman

Former Police Service Commission chairman Simon Okeke warned yesterday that if the South East is denied the presidency in 2023, the Igbo community will react in a variety of ways. 

Okeke, who spoke in Onitsha at the presentation of a book titled “History of Igboland and a Reappraisal of the Origin of Onicha Ado N’Idu,” written by retired police commissioner Ikechukwu Aduba, said that denying Igbo the opportunity to ascend to the seat of president since 1960 was not an act of God, but rather a well-crafted national and international conspiracy against Ndigbo.  

He stated that the exclusion of Ndigbo from Nigerian administration was the core cause of the grievance and the development of rebel groups such as the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). 

As a result, he has asked that any political party that desires Nigeria prosper zone their presidential slot to the South East in order to persuade the people that they are genuinely a part of Nigeria.
