No Single Right-thinking Nigerian Will Support Igbo Presidency – Buhari’s Ex-aide

A former Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Assembly Matters, Abdurrahman Sumaila, has asserted that not a single right-thinking Nigerian will endanger his life to support a candidate from the South-East region contesting for the 2023 presidency.

He disclosed this in a statement released on Thursday in Kano.

Sumaila said the attacks in the southeast are testament that the region cannot be entrusted to lead the country.

He said, “With these atrocities committed by the South-East people on record, how can Nigerians entrust them to govern us? I am sure not a single right-thinking Nigerian will endanger his life to support the candidature of any South-East politician contesting for presidency come 2023 general elections.”

Sumaila also stated that it has now become clear that the motive behind the attacks is to cause anarchy in the country.

He lamented that “the perpetrators of the attacks must understand that if there is chaos in the country, then nobody including the perpetrators can escape”.

He urged elders in the South-East to publicly denounce the ongoing attacks by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) or be considered complicit in the dastardly act.

The ex-presidential aide said until the Southern elite makes their position definite, Nigerians would consider them part and parcel of the attacks being carried out in the region by armed militia.

He added, “The elite in the South-East should borrow a leaf from their northern counterparts such as Arewa Consultative Forum and Northern Elders Forum, who have been persistently condemning the activities of Boko Haram fighters and bandits in the North.”
