Foremost Nigerian philanthropist and oil mogul, Prince Arthur Eze says Igbo must love themselves and be willing to support each other if they want to be president of Nigeria in 2023.

Eze who spoke to journalists in his country home, Ukpo, Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State said Igbo indigenes cannot be president if they continue to dislike and fight each other at every given time.

“We must love ourselves before we can become president of Nigeria. Politicians are causing hatred in Igbo land, they find it difficult to work with each other. Each desires to work for their own selfish interest.

“Another thing is that we must see a way to work with northerners. I love northern leaders and they love me too. They are very easy to deal with. When I was struggling to be somebody in life, they took me in with trust.

“Only God can find the kind of Igbo man that has the character to help. Without that kind of character, we cannot unite to become president of Nigeria. That is why the north is succeeding, and we need to liaise with them too to be able to become president in 2023.

“I didn’t know Abubakar Rimi or Solomon Lar when they gave me contracts to equip their state TV in those days. The north also introduced me into oil business without knowing me or who I was. That is the spirit I want our people to imbibe,” Eze said.

Speaking on the Anambra governorship election which comes up in 2021, Eze said his only interest in who becomes the governor was to find one who has the interest of the state at heart and ready to sacrifice for her.”

Speaking on the recent argument on the zoning of Anambra governorship position to the south, the businessman said he was more interested in supporting a good man for the governorship position than supporting one for reason of where they hail from, but added that he supports a minority zone more.

“As for zoning, I believe that the people who have not been privileged should be given the chance, let them have the opportunity; provided that there is a good human being in that area; not a criminal that will deal with the people when he acquires power.Daily Post
