It’s Stupidity Appeasing South-East With Presidency -Mike Okonkwo

The presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Mike Okonkwo, has said it is stupidity to appease the South-East with Presidency.

He said the region, being part of Nigeria, deserves everything other Nigerians enjoy.

This is as he lamented the current system of things in Nigeria which he said will make an Igbo President fail.

According to Okonkwo: “To the best of my knowledge, the easterners are not asking for anything other than live and let live.

“They are not saying, ‘give us everything’. For me, to be honest with you, I am not in agreement with any easterner saying, ‘it’s time for us to be president’.

“So you should beg to be president? If it’s going to be a case of making you president so that you can be appeased, that is stupidity; I don’t want that. You are a Nigerian; you have an equal right to everything that every other person in Nigeria.

“So, it’s not a matter of being appeased. In fact, I don’t even want any easterner under this situation to be a president because he will fail. Do you know why? The present system can never allow you to succeed. That is why we have to look at the system.”
