Chief Arthur Obiora, President of the Ohanaze Ndigbo Youth Wing Worldwide, has stressed the fact that an Igbo man is prepared to take Nigerian leadership and steer the affairs of the nation.
According to him, the South-East needs to come together and forge a formidable team to propel one Igbo candidate to run for president as power is not given but taken.

He spoke with newsmen as he reiterated the copmitment of the Igbo to take power by force through constitutional means come 2023.
He said: “The North has taken their turn, Southwest and South-south zones through erstwhile presidents, Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan have taken their turn. By God’s grace, it is the turn of Igbo, particularly Southeast to produce a president come 2023.
“Power is not given but taken. What we are advocating now is to take power by force through constitutional means come 2023. We have been patient enough, and other tribes think it is a sign of cowardice or weakness. No! We have been patient enough and now, it is our turn to take the presidency. Anything outside that is uncalled for. We are prepared to take it or Nigeria will not be the same again.”

“The youth wing has embarked on advocacy visits and outreach missions to drum support for the emergence of a Nigerian president of Igbo stock throughout Southeast zone with a view to not overheat the polity with quests from non-Igbo aspirants. The best restructuring the country should embark upon is to have an Igbo man from the Southeast emerge as president in 2023. This will end all atrocities, crimes of all colorations including banditry, kidnappings, armed robbery, and killings.”
