President Muhammadu Buhari’s media adviser, Femi Adesina has said that he believes that an Igbo person can become president in Nigeria.
He made this known on Wednesday while receiving a delegation of Igbo Friends and Onyebuchi Chris Ifediora (OCI) Foundation.
Adesina recalled the times he used to write in favour of Igbo presidency.
He noted that he was always delighted to receive visitors from different parts of the country.
“It shows the brotherhood in us; Nigeria is one country, indivisible. You have demonstrated it by coming to visit me.”
The spokesperson said he has two chieftaincy titles from two states – Nwanne di Namba from Mmaku in Enugu, and Ugomba of Isieketa in Abia.
“At the Sun Newspapers, I used to write about the Southeast and the need for a President of Igbo extraction and what the people of the area needed to do to achieve it.
“I know that it would be a reality in this country”, the media aide said.
