A former Governor of Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said the South East is prepared to kneel or bow before every ethnic group in the country to clinch the presidency in 2023.
He said this Saturday in Abuja at the United For Better Nigeria Initiative (UBNI) National Convention.
“I found Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and other groups in this place talking about the need for federal character. If you do it that way, there will be unity; if there is fairness, equity, justice, you will have unity and progress.
“The Igbo man does not kneel down, but this time, we are prepared to kneel down to every part of Nigeria, every group, every ethnic group in Nigeria, we are prepared to even prostrate because we believe in this country,” Ezeife said.
He said Igbo had contributed greatly to the development of Nigeria in terms of infrastructure, intellect, business, and that thus it was the time to give them the chance to build Nigeria to the standard God wanted it to be
