Despite being a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is selling Yoruba as the best candidate to become Nigeria’s next president in 2023, Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s special adviser on media and publicity, has expressed his belief that an Igbo presidency is a reality in Nigeria.
The president’s top aide, who spoke at State House on Wednesday, recalled the time when he wrote in favour of the Igbos on the governance of Nigeria.
Daily Post reports that Adesina pondered the Igbo presidency yesterday when he received a delegation from Igbo Friends and Onyebuchi Chris Ifediora Foundation (OCI).
The delegation from the organisation visited the presidential aide to congratulate him on the occasion of the President conferring on him the national award of Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON).
In his speech, Adesina stressed that he is always happy to receive visitors from different parts of the country.
“It demonstrates our kinship; Nigeria is one country, indivisible,” he remarked. You proved it by visiting me to offer congratulations.
The spokesperson for the president said that he holds the chieftaincy titles of Nwanne di Namba from Mmaku in Enugu and Ugomba from Isieketa in Abia.

Adesina remarked, “I know that it will be a reality in this country.
