‘Igbo Presidency’ Is Problematic, Says Moghalu

Kingsley Moghalu, presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in the 2019 election, has faulted the phrase, ‘Igbo presidency’.

In a tweet on Monday, the former deputy governor of financial system stability and director of the Central Bank of Nigeria, said the term is wrong because it speaks of ethnicity rather than the country as a whole.

“The phrase “Igbo presidency” is problematic. We should speak of a Nigerian President from the Southeast. Not sure what good the “Fulani presidency” has done the country, including the north. Emphasizing the ethnic origin without the national context is the wrong emphasis,” Moghalu said.
