Igbo youths have reiterated their dream that producing a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction in 2023 is not negotiable.
The National Publicity Secretary of Ohaneze Youth Wing, Mazi Chika Art Adiele, who spoke with journalists in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, on Friday, said Igbo as one of the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria needs to be given opportunity in 2023, so that they will have a sense of belonging.

Adiele, who led a team from the national leadership of Ohaneze Youth Wing to Bayelsa State chapter to resolve the internal crisis in the chapter, said youths of Igbo extraction must come together to ensure that the area produces the next Nigerian president.
He urged other ethnic groups to understand that Nigeria stand on the tripods and Igbo is one of the tripods, who have contributed immensely to national development.
The South South Coordinator of Ohaneze Youth Wing and newly elected National Financial Secretary, Chief Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, while welcoming the group to Bayelsa State, said Igbo youths living in the state are united and are working for the good of the country.
