Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has expressed confidence that a president of Igbo extraction would emerge someday in the country.
Uzodinma, who is the Chairperson of the South-East Governors’ Forum, stated this on Thursday at a two-day Economic and Security Summit in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The Imo governor maintained that the region was part of the Nigerian project, stressing the need for greater unity and synergy among the five states in addressing the security challenges facing the region.
He expressed the need for successful Igbo investors to support Ohaneze Ndigbo, the leading Igbo socio-cultural organisation, to galvanise the Southeast people into one united body that would speak with one voice.
The governor also called for routine engagement of the private and public sector operators from the region to collectively redefine the Igbo agenda.
He said: “A special forum should be established for all political office holders in the region to meet at least twice a year to exchange ideas and form a synergy on Igbo matters.
“In ensuring a renaissance of the Igbo unity and development, I believe the place to start is to begin to address the security challenges in our land.
“We must rise from this summit on a clear road map to ensure that Igbo people are not interrupted in their legitimate quest to make ends meet with the sit-at-home madness.”
