Obinwannem News Prof Okolie says, Ebubeagu, Igbo presidency'll fail

The National president of Nigerian Political Science Association, NPSA, Prof. Aloysius Micheals Okolie, asserted that the proposed security outfit of the South East governors, ‘Ebubeagu,’ as well as the ambition to produce an Igbo native for presidency, in 2023, would not be possible.

Prof. Okolie, who is also the Dean Faculty of Social Science, University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN explained that the governors failed to carry opinion leaders, legal luminaries and major stakeholders along setting up the proposed security outfit.

While stressing that the 2023 ambition of the Igbo to produce a president would not be realizable, just like the Ebubeagu security outfit; he alleged that the governors of the South East were sabotaging themselves for political gains and could not workout any meaningful project together

He said, “before the South West came up with Amotekun, they were able to harvest the contributions of intelligentsia from opinion leaders, legal luminaries, major stakeholders, which the South East governors did not do before proposing Ebubeagu.

“The South West cake together and established their views, the framework was established and legalized, that is why, it is very difficult for the federal government to fault the legal standing of Amotekun.

“The South East governors are singing in discordant tones, they are not working in unison. Each of them is faced with the factors of political survival, that is, they want people to perpetuate themselves on political seats.

“The second fact is, that all of them are afraid of the hydra headed monsta, called EFCC. Based on these basic factors, none of them is ready to lay down his head for the survival of the Igbo race.

“Each person is talking about being the president, vice president, being in senate, and what have you. That is why they can’t have a common front. They are sabotaging themselves from the setting. We are seeing, that the South East cannot produce the president of Nigeria in 2023.

“This does not mean, i am sabotaging the Igbo people. But this is just the reality based on discordant tones that characterize the Igbo relationship with one another. It is obvious that the real Ebubeagu is not for the protection of Igbo man, but an outfit directed from the presidency to fight ESN.”
