Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro President-General Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has said Igbo Presidency project in exchange for Ruga settlements is not only a huge joke but total fallacy.

Isiguzoro in a statement on Friday while reacting to a recent comment by the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai’s advocating for ‘abolishment of Zoning formula and gentleman’s agreement’.

According to Isighzoro, Zoning formula existed between North and South since 1999, from which ‘El Rufai was a major beneficiary during the 2015 governorship elections in Kaduna.

The Statement read thus

(1) Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide wanted to ignore the recent vituperative tendencies of a loose cannon who is blinded by his ambition to become president by championing the abolishment of Zoning formula and gentleman’s agreement that had existed between North and South since 1999, but because of posterity’s sake, We wish to remind Kaduna state Governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai, that Christians Prayers from Southern Kaduna will never allow him succeed in his presidential project.

(2)El Rufai was a major beneficiary of zoning arrangement in 2015 Guber elections in Kaduna, now wants to thwart the glaring opportunities for a Nigerian President of Igbo stock in 2023, we are aware that El Rufai wants to be the running mate to a Christian Pastor and Professor of law, who is studying the body language of the President to know how to navigate the storm at the appropriate time. Ekiti govt seals illegal hospitals, warns against patronising quacks

(3) We wish to debunk any insinuation and fears,in some quarters that the North will use suspended Ruga settlements as a bait to negotiate with Southern Nigeria especially Igbos on 2023 Igbo Presidency project in exchange for Ruga settlements as not only a huge joke but total fallacy, from assurances from credible and prominent Northern groups, what is expected of Igbos is to bring on the best Presidential material either a Sitting Governor or a former Governor from the South East that will rejig Nigeria’s potentials back on track as truly as Giant of Africa not standing on mosquitoes legs.

“There are so many leakages in the Lagos State Government purse. Take this AlphaBeta; who owns this AlphaBeta? What is the essence of the AlphaBeta? Where else in the world would you have an Inland Revenue Service, who have their own staff who are supposed to go out and collect the fees, but you have an independent company to be supposedly collecting the internally generated revenue from our state?

“It grosses around N50bn (about $130m) a month and you know how much that company (AlphaBeta) is paid 15% of it, that’s N7.5bn in thirty days going to the company, that is a leakage, that is sacrilegious.”
