The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has joined the quest by the South-East geopolitical zone to produce Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Ngige said all the agitations for Biafra and the wounds of civil war would be permanently healed if an Igbo person emerged as President in the 2023 general election.
The minister who supported the rotation of presidency to South stated this on Channels TV.
“If Nigerians of all shades of opinion in all the political parties agree to send down the presidency in both parties to the South-East, you would have buried the ghosts of the civil war permanently. You would have buried all the separatist agitations permanently; you would have buried all the sins of ‘oh no appointments, these and that’ permanently. Everything will begin to rest,” the minister said.
