Owner of Raypower Radio and AIT, Raymond Dokpesi has said that the agitation for Biafra Republic, spearheaded by Nnamdi Kanu, has complicated the chances of an Igbo Presidency of Nigeria, especially in 2023.

According to him, with Nnamdi Kanu on stage, other Nigerians may not trust any Igbo for the position of presidency.

In a statement today, October 18, Dokpesi said that the feeling in other parts of the country is that IPOB could force an Igbo president to commence processes for the declaration of Biafra.

“The emergence of IPOB and its influence across the South East has complicated and undermined the agitation for patriotic Nigerians of Igbo extraction to lead this nation as far as the 2023 election is concerned.

“If nobody has told Ohaneze Ndigbo before, the concern today from some other regions is that if Nnamdi Kanu plays the role of Aguiyi Ironsi in leading a militant revolt against constitutional government in the southeast under Igbo presidency, the president will be pressured by his base to facilitate the UN processes for the South East to call for independence from Nigeria.

“Thus an Igbo President may be compromised in protecting the political and geographic boundaries of Nigeria whilst Nigeria remains under the threat of IPOB’s secessionist activities.”

Dokpesi’s view is backgrounded accusation by the Ohaneze Ndigbo over his comment that no candidate from the southeast or even the south as a whole could win the presidency in 2023 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
