Comrade Joseph Evah, an Ijaw leader, has advised the Igbo people not to be moved about the speculation of the former President Goodluck Jonathan running for the presidential race in 2023.
Evah, who is also the National Coordinator of the Ijaw Monitoring Group, IMG, said the former President wouldn’t force himself on Nigerians.
Comrade Evah has preciously warned the North about fielding any candidates for the presidential election, noting that it is the Igbo turn.
He further advised Ndigbo to put their house in order and organize themselves to avoid blaming anyone for losing the presidential seat.
“Former President Jonathan will never force himself on Nigerians in 2023, so people should be assured of that, but let me use this opportunity to pass a message to the Igbo people, yes they are good, very good, but they must properly organize themselves before they will blame any other force against them,” he was quoted by the Sun.
Evah equally noted that the key for the Igbo’s now is their political togetherness, noting that they have to speak with one strong and united voice.
“Many people are looking at the direction of Jonathan now, but of course, you know that Jonathan is not an over-ambitious man.
“They are the ones that are confusing Jonathan. Jonathan is not a confusionist, he is just there waiting in the wings, but the signal is that the Igbo should go and do their homework well, let nobody say that it is Jonathan who wants to force himself to become the President,” he said.
“Jonathan, by nature, will never force himself on Nigerians. I repeat, the Igbo should go and do their homework well. If you look at the history of Jonathan and his political life, he never forces himself on people in any way,” he added.
