Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor on Drainages, Joe Igbokwe, has declared that he has the key to Igbo presidency.

In a post on his official Facebook page, the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain said the Southeastern people are not interested in secession but are unhappy with how the country treats the geo-political zone.
The move by several Nigerians to shift power to the Southeast via the 2023 presidential election had suffered a setback as the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, an indigene of the region, was defeated by Bola Tinubu of the Southwest.

Speaking on the matter, Igbokwe opined that the Southeast people are more interested in Nigeria than the movement for the actualization of Biafra as a sovereign state, citing the massive acceptance of Obi during the poll.

“First, I will advise IPOB to drop the guns and embrace and seek peace with other Nigerians. Then, dialogue and constructive engagements will follow.

“We will then start the process of building bridges of friendship and building trust with other Nigerians. Dialogue on national unity, issues of equity, justice, fair play and the healing process will then commence. It is possible, and I also know that it is doable.

“I offer myself for this service to humanity and I am ready to work with like minds to achieve national unity. Peace is better than war. To achieve peace and to grow our economy we need Justice, equity and fair play”, he added.
