Politics Igbo Presidency won’t solve Nigeria’s problems –Alex Otti 5 months ago Everydaynews Former Group Managing Director, Diamond Bank Plc and two-time governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, has opined that handing the Igbo Nigeria’s presidency would not solve the problem of Nigeria, as some fundamental structural problems must be handled for an egalitarian society to be institutionalised. The renowned economist also stated that insecurity would continue in the country until poverty among the citizens is addressed. Speaking to Sunnewsonline, he said: “A situation where close to 90 million people, representing 43 per cent of our population, live below the poverty line of less than 1.90 dollar per day, makes the country a veritable candidate for insecurity of the highest order.” READ 2023: Igbo president realistic if… –Ohanaeze Ndigbo“If you have followed my politics, you would realise that I do not believe in primordial sentiments.

That is the extent to which I believe in Igbo Presidency.” READ Nigerian govt’s planned rehabilitation of grazing reserves a knee-jerk reaction – Falana“Would that solve the problem of Nigeria?
