2023: I’m An Igbo Man, I Am Entitled To The Presidency – Gov Okowa


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has stated that despite the fact that he is from the South-South region, he is still an Igbo man.

Governor Okowa disclosed this on Friday during a media interview with Arise TV as he reacted to the outbursts of some groups who described him as “a traitor” after his emergence as the vice-presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

According to him, his emergence as the PDP presidential running mate did not stop the Igbos from agitating for the presidency.

Okowa said, “For me, yes I’m from Delta State, I’m definitely an Igbo man, there is no doubt about that. I’m from Delta State in the South-South but if you’re looking at Igbos across the country, I’m an Igbo man, I can’t be counted out and that is the true situation.



“The issue of the Vice-presidency has not been on the debate where it should go to, it’s actually premised on the fact that when the Presidential candidate emerges, he looks for what possible zone and what possible candidate can work with him, I think that this is what informs the decision. I’m just a lucky person, being from the South-South, I’m also an Igbo man.

“I fit into all the divides. My brothers in the South-East, I’m part of them. I’m also part of the South-South. But this does not stop the agitation in the future for the Igbos to have the presidency of this country.”
