Nigeria: Anyanwu Gives Conditions for Igbo Presidency

Owerri. — Senator Chris Anyanwu has outlined conditions to be achieved before an Igbo could become president of the country.

The federal lawmaker elected under the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) as a guest speaker at the 2012 Ozuruigbo lecture held at Imo Concord Hotel Owerri advised Igbos to form a common front so as to fight for the exalted office.

Speaking on the topic 'Zoning as a political palliative in Nigeria; Can the Igbos take their turn?, Anyanwu strongly affirmed that Igbos can produce the next president of the country if they could work hard.

She said that it is not enough aspiring for the number one position of the country adding that beyond that there should be a stronger current driving the feeling beyond the realm of hope into reality.

Anyanwu pointed out at certain requirements that must be fulfilled before Igbos could think of producing the president of this country which she said includes ability to find the right man or woman who is qualified for the job.

The chairman, senate committee on Army, Navy, Air force said that zoning at any time does not mean that everyone is good but should rather mean that the zone should produce its best and most tested and qualified citizen to vie for the position.
