Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senator representing Abia South, says the emergence of an Igbo Presidency in 2023 is not negotiable.

Abaribe made the assertion when he was presented with a “legacy Merit Award” by the Imo State chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Owerri, on Wednesday.

The Abia Senator who was represented by one of his aides, Chijioke Ukoh, urged the Igbos not to relent but to remain firm, resolute and undaunted in the face of legions of challenges.

According to The Punch, he assured them that light would appear at the end of the tunnel one day.

“The legacy award is an appreciation, and the reward for good work is more work, please continue to be fearless, objective and constructive in the discharge of your duties as the watchdog of the society in line with the ethics of your noble profession,” he said.

His comment comes amid the growing clamour from South-East leaders for an Igbo to succeed Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
