No Igbo Man Contesting Presidency, They Are All Eyeing VP Slot – MASSOB 

Leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has said though many aspirants from the South East are angling to be president of Nigeria in 2023, he is yet to see any serious aspirant among them.

He said at best what many of them are aspiring for is the vice presidential slot.

Uwazuruike, who spoke against the backdrop of criticism trailing his support for the presidential ambition of Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, said as a Nigerian and as an adult he has the fundamental right to support whoever he wants.

Uwazuruike said, “No Igbo man is contesting for the presidency. All these people you are seeing are pretenders. They can’t come to me because they know that I know them. No Igbo man. I repeat is contesting for the president. Let them swear, all of them, that they are not going to the North to lobby for vice president.

“People have called me from the North telling me that all those clamouring to be president are the ones seeking to be vice presidents. I laughed because I know them. None of these people you are supporting today are serious. They are all looking for vice president; all of them, from A to Z, I challenge them. They are pretenders. They can fool you but they can’t fool me.”
