Presidency 2023 | Igbos are making a case against Nigeria

Igbo Presidency 2023

Before we unravel the many thoughts of Nigerians about the trend that have sparked a debate on the chances of an Igbo president come election 2023, or the idea that the Igbo people feel marginalized in the country when it comes to politics, let us first talk about the origin of this Twitter trend.

The Igbo trend on Twitter  ignited after a video of late Ismaila Isa-Funtua surfaced on social media. In the video, the business mogul was addressing a question that called for his opinion on the alleged marginalization of Igbo people feeling. Isa’s answer suggests the Igbo people are somehow responsible for their own alleged marginalization – he said in the video: “If they deserve to be president of Nigeria they should belong to a party… It is not turn by turn Nigeria…” 


The post spurred serious debates on Twitter. Many people are now exploring the idea of having an Igbo president (or not) in the coming election. While some called for Nigeria to be restructured to accommodate the Igbo people, others pointed out that Nigerian elections and the presidency is not a matter of ethnicity but a matter of National Politics – They seem to share Isa’s point that claims Nigeria not to be a ‘turn by turn” country.

At every slight opportunity, these debates come up. Ismail Isa Funtua’s death and the video that went viral is the latest trigger for this one today on Twitter and Igbos will continue to trend and make their case known every other week until the Presidential Primaries take place in 2023.

Here are what Nigerians are saying…
