Politics / 2023: PANPIEC Holds 'Reach Out to the North' April 29,2021 In FCT by Saintbossman: 12:47pm On Apr 19, 2021
Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition (PANPIEC), the umbrella body of the all the groups championing for Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023 will on April 29, 2021, hold a programme titled "REACH OUT ACROSS THE NORTH, A SURE FOR A NIGERIAN PRESIDENT OF IGBO EXTRACTION", at Nigerian Air Force (NAF) centre Abuja by 10 am.

In a press statement made available to newsmen on Sunday April 18, 2021 at Tinapa Resort, Calabar Cross river state, Prince Erondu Uche the PANPIEC Director of Media and Publicity reminded all invited guests and participants to be in attendance. " PANPIEC wishes to use this medium to remind all invited guests and participants to be in attendance".

PANPIEC Abuja April 29th Programme is set to determine the direction for 2023 Presidential election as many politicians have indicated interest to attend.

He also debunked the rumors making round that politicians are sponsoring the group, he noted that the group is being sponsored by members. " No politician is sponsoring us.

Politics / Breaking! Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere's Spokesman Is Dead. by Saintbossman: 11:05am On Apr 03, 2021
Afenifere Spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin Dies Of COVID-19 In Lagos Hospital. He died in the early hours of today due to complications from Covid-19, according to family sources.


The spokesman for the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, is dead.

He died in the early hours of today due to complications from Covid-19, according to family sources.

Details of his death are still sketchy.

“I just spoke with Dr. Joe, his wife. She's in a panic mode. She said a part of her is gone. Odumakin had been in the ICU of LASUTH for the past one week after being transffered from IDH Yaba,” a source said.

Odumakin was a human rights activist who played a vital role in the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) that fought General Sani Abacha's regime after the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election.

He was the Apex Yoruba group's spokesman for over two decades, coordinating the publicity and public relations activities of the group.

He was also one of the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders' Forum (SMBLF) spokespersons, the body representing ethnic nationalities in the South-West, South-South, South-East and the Middle Belt.

Odumakin, married to another activist, Dr. Joe Odumakin, has been one of the strongest critics of the present government using the platform of the Afenifere.

He has consistently taken on the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over alleged impartiality and favouritism in appointment into various offices.

His voice was also very loud in condemning the activities of killer herders in the Yorubaland.

He recently warned the Federal Government against arresting Sunday Igboho, who recently issued a quit notice to the Fulani herders in Ibarapa Oyo State and subsequently ejected the Sarkin Fulani in Igangan.
Health / Covid 19, Investigate My Nigerian Made Vaccine, Prof. M. Ezeibe Challenges W.H.O by Saintbossman: 10:14am On Mar 30, 2021

Below are his claims.

Mopping Viruses/Tumor-cells with Medicinal synthetic Aluminum-magnesium silicate:

Treatment for Covid-19/other viral diseases and Cancers/other abnormal cell diseases.
Maduike C. O. Ezeibe (maduikeezeibe@yahoo.com)

Reason HIV/AIDS was “incurable” is severe depletion of immunity by HIV-infections. Without adequate
immunity, clearing infections from cells, inaccessible to medicines is difficult. Those are cells called
“infection-reservoirs”. However, literature reveals that:
(i) When cells become abnormal
(tumorous/infected) they acquire negative charges; (ii). Every virus is electrically charged;
(iii). Molecules
of Aluminum-magnesium silicate (AMS), WHO-approved medicine/adjuvant, consist of Nanoparticles
(0.96 nm) with positive and negative ends.

These are bases of our hypothesis that AMS mops viruses/”viral￾reservoirs” by opposite charges-electrostatic attraction. Their ultra-small size aids AMS-Nanoparticles,
reach all organs/tissues, to mop viruses/abnormal cells. Adjuvants enhance antimicrobials` efficacies
(against none-viral infections) while silicates enhance immunity. Mopping viruses/ “viral-reservoirs”,
clearing secondary infections and enhancing immunity would cure any viral/abnormal cell disease (Covid-
19, HIV/AIDS and Cancers). Since Nigeria does not have natural AMS-deposits, we synthesized
Medicinal-AMS from solid minerals, found in the country, Aluminum silicate and Magnesium silicate
{WHO-approved medicines: Al4 (SiO4)3 + 3Mg2SiO4 → 2Al2 Mg3 (SiO4)3}. Glucose® (simple sugar) was
incorporated, to convey the un-absorbable Medicinal synthetic AMS (MSAMS®
, Antivirt®
) into blood.

To test the hypothesis/medicine, two HIV/AIDS patients (in Nigeria and in Tanzania) were studied. They
were on MSAMS-Ampicilin formulation (Antivirt® A) for one month before changing to MSAMS alone
(Antivirt® B). They also took Immunace extra protection®
(antioxidants), daily. The Antivirt® was
taken in empty stomach (≥ 2 hours after dinner) while the Immunace-extra protection® was in full
stomach (immediately after breakfast). Once they took the Antivirt®, they did not eat anything again,
till the next morning. Any other oral-medicine they had to take, was taken, two hours before the
Antivirt® or two hours after (avoiding Antivirt®, binding to charged-particles in food/medicines).
They were tested for CD4 counts, HIV-loads and HIV-antibody, every month. When they became
antibody-negative, they were tested to confirm them antigen-negative too, before stopping them
from taking any antiretroviral medicine while the antibody-test continued. Both the Nigerian and the
Tanzanian remained HIV-negative for their 10-months and 24-months respective test-periods, post
treatment. Since Antivirt® cured HIV/AIDS, despite the severe immune-deficiency, it will easily cure
diseases caused by electrically charged pathogens which are not associated with severe immune-deficiency
(Covid-19/other viral diseases and Cancers/other tumors).

Our appeal is that everybody in the world
insists that WHO scientifically investigates these claims and makes her findings public.
Politics / Drama As PANPIEC Clash With CCAD Over Sen. Abaribe & Kalu, Prince Erondu Reacts by Saintbossman: 1:53pm On Mar 09, 2021

There was drama on Wednesday March 3rd, 2021, in Akure the Ondo state capital when two groups, Concerned Citizens of Abia in the Diaspora (CCAD) and Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition, PANPIEC Southwest Zone who came to pay courtesy calls to Prince Erondu Uche disagreed over the attack on Senator Orji Uzor Kalu by Senator Enyinnaya Abaraibe.

Sen. Abaraibe who had recently been involved in controversial comments had accused Sen. Orji Kalu of making him swear an oath of allegiance before being inaugurated as deputy governor in 1999, stating that such acts should not be allowed to take place in politics.

Reacting to the attack on Sen. Orji Kalu, Engineer Pactick Ugoala, the Publicity Secretary of Concerned Citizens of Abia in Diaspora who led the delegation from South south said that the attack on Orji Kalu was uncalled for since he, Enyinnaya Abaraibe took the alleged oath. He wondered why he would be reporting what happened in 1999 in 2021 and said it was politically motivated. "How can he be condemning an oath he took in 1999 in 2021? Why didn't he reject the oath then? Am not saying that the alleged act is right but why now. We are Abians, both Senators are representing us in the national assembly and are also qualified for the post of the Presidency as it is going to be zoned to Igbo land. We cannot allow such attacks at this early stage. But in a swift reaction, High Chief Kingsley Chukwuma, the Deputy Coordinator PANPIEC Southwest and Hon. Samuel Eliod, Publicity Secretary of PANPIEC Southwest said that the gathering was not because of Orji Kalu and Enyinnaya Abaraibe's differences, noting that it was PDP and APC affair which has nothing to do with PANPIEC. According to High Chief Kingsley, " We are happy that our visit with your group CCAD coincided. We are here to encourage and discuss with our leader Prince Erondu Uche, the Director of Media and Publicity of PANPIEC. Our gathering here is not for Orji Kalu and Enyinnaya Abaraibe please, we don't meddle into party politics".

Addressing the press shortly after the meeting, Prince Erondu Uche who also is the President General of Concerned Citizens of Abia in the Diaspora CCAD said that the two groups which he belong to did not visit him for the purpose of discussing the issue between the two Senators. However he said that the spokesman of CCAD as an Abia man is free to air his view on the matter. He confirmed that PANPIEC does not meddle into party affairs, noting that the two Senators could be seen eating and drinking together tomorrow. " As an Abian, I belong to CCAD, I am the President General of CCAD and also a national leader in PANPIEC which is a national group. In PANPIEC, we don't play party politics. The two groups did not visit me to settle the Senators. I don't see them as fighting, they were best of friends some years back and could come back tomorrow to eat and drink together. In politics, there is no permanent friend or enemy ".

On the purpose of the visit, PEU said that CCAD SOUTH SOUTH and PANPIEC SOUTHWEST came to give him progress report on the ongoing Campaign for the Presidency to be zoned to Igbo land in 2023. He noted that CCAD is part of PANPIEC coalition and is actively involved in the 2023 campaign for Igbo to become the President which has been accepted by all Nigerians.

Reacting to the recent massive support given to PANPIEC by Prominent Yoruba leaders to actualize it's purpose of producing a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023, PEU said that the southwest leaders who are supporting his group are doing so for the sake of justice which will eventually bring unity. " We are indebted to these Patriotic Stakeholders who believe in equity, Justice and fair play. They have been encouraging us. It is either they are visiting me or hosting me. Those who would come out from southwest in 2023 to contest will not get the support of southwest. Some who confided in me said that seeing the mood of the nation now that almost all the aspirants from the southwest are already discouraged and are pulling out, noting that the mood of the nation now is for Igbo to become President in 2023.
Politics / Abia People ‘Unfortunate’, Governed by ‘Champagne Drinking Man’ – Kogi Senator by Saintbossman: 6:43pm On Feb 23, 2021
Abia People ‘Unfortunate’, Governed by ‘Champagne Drinking Man’ – Kogi Senator

There was mild drama in the Senate on Tuesday following comment by Senator Smart Adeyemi referring to Abia Governor as a “drunk.” TheNewsGuru.com, TNG reports that Adeyemi, while contributing to a motion on “Safe School Initiative in Nigeria,” referred to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu as a “champagne drinking man”.

The lawmaker was apparently reacting to a social media post that had cast an aspersion on Kogi Governor, Yahaya Bello linked to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who represents Abia South. However, Abaribe expressed surprise at Adeyemi’s outburst denying ever making the statement in question.

Adeyemi had said that while some Governors like Bello were committed to the welfare and protection of their people, the people of Abia are being governed by ‘drunkards.’ He said: “Despite that some Governors are doing their best, we are lucky to have a governor who has taken the issue of security as a serious priority.

“We are bordered by nine states but we had an experience of the unfortunate incidents that are happening in neighbouring states. “Some governors are committed to the protection of their people. In my state, the governor awarded contracts for the renovations of schools and provides security services to them. “In some states of Nigeria today, where we have highly intelligent people, highly educated people, very enterprising people, like Abia, they are governed by drunkards. The governor of Abia is a champagne drinking man.

“Abia people are impoverished more than ever before. Abia people are unfortunate.” At this point, Senate President Ahmad Lawan cautioned him against the use of un-parliamentary language.

Abaribe expressed surprise over Adeyemi’s comment and urged him colleague to apologise to Ikpeazu. Abaribe said: “Mr President, I will like to make a clarification. Unfortunately, what has happened here today is one of the problems that you see on social media. I never made any comments on the governor of Kogi State. Never.

“What has happened is what we see going on today. People write something and tag your name to it. And if you don’t ask question, you will not know whether you actually said it or not.

“And I see so many things tag to me but I don’t talk. The last time I saw Nuhu Ribadu, I also spoke to him. Something was tag to his name that was very deleterious. “I’m very surprised that my good friend and colleague decided to open up on the governor of Abia for something I never said.”

Lawan noted the “air has now been cleared” and enjoined Senator Abaribe to address the motion on the floor. Abaribe agreed with Lawan but insisted that Adeyemi must apologise to Abia Governor “for the very bad statement he made that had no basis.”
Politics / 2023; PANPIEC Chieftain PEU Visits IBB, Sultan, OBJ With Group's Handbills by Saintbossman: 11:34am On Feb 11, 2021

The campaign for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023 has taken another dimension as the group's Director of Media and Publicity, Prince Erondu Uche tours round the country to distribute handbills to eminent Nigerians.

While featuring in a Ghanaian television programme "Politics Africa", PEU was quoted to have side that in support of PANPIEC distribution of fliers, that he would visit and share the handbills with some eminent Nigerians. Currently, the group which is the umbrella body of all the groups championing for Igbo to produce the next Nigerian President is distributing fliers and posters across the country.

"In PANPIEC, we lead by good example. As the umbrella body, we set the pace. The work is for everyone. I was told that the immediate past Spokesman of OHANAEZE, Chuks Ibegbu was in Benue state today to distribute our handbills to some high profile individuals, that is the spirit, no matter how highly placed you are. Personally, I will be going to some eminent Nigerians to give them our fliers. I will visit Gen. Ibrahim Babangida in Niger state, am going to see the Sultan of Sokoto, even Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and many others".

PEU noted that the distribution of the fliers is necessary in order to sensitise more Nigerians on the need to support Igbo to occupy the number one position. Reacting to the call by the group asking Atiku, Tinubu, Fayemi and others to stop their Presidential ambitions and support Igbo in 2023, Prince Erondu said it would be more honourable and patriotic if those nursing such ambitions would consider the greater good which is the unity of Nigeria. " But the problem we have is that most of our leaders are selfish. The unity of the country means nothing to them, if not why would they be nursing such ambitions now. I said it will be more honourable if they withdraw because Nigerians will not support them. The mood of the nation now is for Igbo to succeed President Mohammed Buhari in 2023.

Politics / OHANAEZE Election: PANPIEC Raises Alarm Over Blackmail, Denies Peace Meeting by Saintbossman: 10:02am On Jan 24, 2021

Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC, the umbrella body of all the groups championing for Igbo to become the next President in 2023 has raised alarm over news making rounds on social media of its planned peace meeting to settle aggrieved members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, describing it as fake news targeted at spoiling the image of the group.

The Director of Media and Publicity of the group, Prince Erondu Uche in a telephone chat with a correspondent said " PANPIEC has never made any comment and does not intend to talk about OHANAEZE election. If there are people who are angry about the outcome of the election, it is not our concern. PANPIEC has no hands in the fake planned peace meeting holding at Enugu or anywhere. Our group is headed by a Northern, I wonder how an Hausa man will be the one to reconcile Igbo people. Its funny. We have not authorized any member to get involved in OHANAEZE politics and I assure you none of our members have said anything against the election. The election that brought Professor George Obiozor was done transparently, I was there. PANPIEC reorganises Obiozor as OHANAEZE President General ".

Recently there have been reports on social media of PANPIEC organizing a peace meeting between aggrieved members of Ohanaeze. PEU debunked the rumor, saying it is the hand work of mischief makers who want to present the group in a bad light to the new government of Ohanaeze. He asked Ohanaeze and the general public to disregard the fake news.

PEU after releasing a press statement had taken to his twitter handle to debunk the rumor.

Below is his press release;


PANPIEC attention has been drawn to news circulating on social media of her involvement on issues relating to OHANAEZE ELECTION.

OHANAEZE NDI-IGBO and the general public should note:

1. That PANPIEC has never and does not intend to make any comment on the just concluded Ohanaeze election.

2. That PANPIEC has only one agenda - achieving a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023. PANPIEC has never and will not be involved in OHANAEZE politics as its agenda is clearly stated.

3. That OHANAEZE and the general public should disregard any statement credited to PRINCE ERONDU UCHE OR PANPIEC on condemning the January 10, 2021 election, Chief Nnia Nwodo's led administration or organizing any programme for reconciliation of aggrieved members of Ohanaeze. Such news is fake and should be discarded.

4. That PANPIEC recognizes Professor George Obiozor as the President of Ohanaeze having succeeded Chief Nnia Nwodo.

Politics / PANPIEC Condemns Violence, Advises Trump, Hail Kalu, Ekweremad On APC/PDP Unity by Saintbossman: 11:59am On Jan 08, 2021

Prince Erondu Uche has condemned the violence that erupted in Capitol building in Washington, alleged to have been perpetrated by President Donald Trump's supporters. In a telephone chat with reporters, PEU said " the violence protest in Capitol building in Washington is anti democratic. I condemn it in its totality. Such act could encourage military incursion in power if done in some other countries".

The PANPIEC Chieftain advised President Trump to follow the path of honour by peacefully handing over to the President elect, Joe Biden. He noted that recent events following America's Presidential election is an embarrassment to the whole world, especially those who look up to America. " The whole drama is an embarrassment to the world. America has always been a good example of Democracy. There is need to put the country first here above personal interest. The integrity of America should be maintained by all interested parties".

In another development, PEU has hailed Senate Orji Kalu and Senator Ike Ekweremadu for coming together, not minding party affiliation to support PANPIEC Quest for the 2023 Presidency to be zoned to Igbo land. He said that this what is expected of all leaders from Igbo land. Prince Erondu also thanked other notable Nigerians who have been lending their voice to this just course, stating that it is the only way forward for Nigeria.

Recently, some Southeast APC and PDP leaders led by Sen. Kalu and Sen. Ekweremadu came together in unity to demand that all parties should zone 2023 Presidency to Igbo land.
Politics / Nigerians Are The Toughest People On Earth, Says PEU On 2021 New Year Message by Saintbossman: 6:58pm On Dec 30, 2020

Prince Erondu Uche PEU, the Director of Media and Publicity of Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC, the umbrella body of all the groups championing for Igbo to occupy Nigeria's number one position in 2023 has released his new year message. The message which he titled the message of hope and peace was made available to newsmen on Wednesday December 30, 2020 during a press conference in Minna, Niger state.

In the new year message, PEU encouraged Nigerians to have hope that Nigeria will come back to her good old days when Igbo is given the chance to be the next President in 2023. He praised Nigerians and described them as the loveliest, the best and the toughest people on earth. He prayed God to uphold the citizenry to see better days ahead. " Nigerians, you are good people and a great nation indeed! Not minding the hardships, killings and divisions, you still remain the loveliest, the best and the toughest people on the surface of the earth. Nigeria, if well managed will be the best country in the world. I pray God to preserve us to see the better days ahead. Igbo as President in 2023 will restore the lost glory".

He advised the Presidency and those saddled with the responsibility of managing Nigeria's affaires to implement policies that will put food on the tables of Nigerians. He condemned constant borrowings which have almost sold Nigeria out to China and other countries. "No country can survive on this type of borrowing. We borrow to pay salaries, renovate good buildings and patch roads. We don't borrow to invest as to make profit and pay back what we have borrowed. It is like borrowing to host burial party which is waste of resources".

On 2023 zoning of presidential slot, Pince Erondu Uche PEU encouraged Nigerians to continue to support Igbo to become the next president in 2023, saying that it is the mood if the nation now and the only good way forward for the country. He noted that this will unite Nigeria again and remove all tension. He also noted that those who are bent on denying Igbo this opportunity don't want Nigeria's unity.
Politics / 2023 Zoning: Open Letter To Goodluck Jonathan By Prince Erondu Uche PEU by Saintbossman: 12:00pm On Dec 13, 2020

Dear Former President and
Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan,

I am constrained to write you this open letter. I decided to make it an open letter in order for this message to get to you, and to have witnesses, that i wrote to you on this subject. The contents of this letter, therefore should be made available to all interest groups and individuals.

There have been wide speculations that you are under pressure to run for the office of the President in 2023, a position you lost to the incumbent, President Mohammad Buhari in 2015. Your visits to the Presidential villa, hosting of APC members, body languages of some PDP stalwarts, your silence over this issue, amongst others have raised concerns from many quarters. People like us who love, respect and learn from you as a great leader don't know what to believe.

Your Excellency, you are one of the top Politicians who have enjoyed the full support of the Igbo nation. During your two presidential elections, you won massively in all the Igbo states and got the vote of majority of Igbos living outside Igbo land. Many believe that the sudden attachment of "Azikiwe and Ebele" to your name during your Presidential campaigns was to get the support of the Igbos. This claim, whether true or false does not stop the fact that you are well loved, respected and supported in Igbo land.

If you yield to this alleged pressure being mounted on you to contest the 2023 Presidential election, which is targeted at jeopardizing the chances of the Igbo nation producing the next President, you will have the following results;

1. You will loose your longstanding relationship and respect in Igbo land, Nigeria and the world at large.
2. You will enter the black list of Ndigbo. This generation and unborn generations will write and read your story as the man who betrayed Ndigbo.
3. All you stand for as a good man will be rubbished.

My dear former President, I advice you to reject this alleged offer being presented to you. Your Excellency, having attained the highest positions in the land - Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President, President and President again and having written your name in gold in the annals of history, it is there honourable that you end well. "Great men exit this world leaving behind good memories of themselves". Maintain your honour till death.

Finally, I urge you to reciprocate the love and support you enjoy from the Igbos by supporting a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023. Prevail on PDP to zone the Presidential slot to Igbo land in 2023.

Prince Erondu Uche.
PANPIEC Director of Media & Publicity.

Politics / Reasons For Nigerian President Of Igbo Extraction By Prince Erondu Uche by Saintbossman: 5:30pm On Dec 12, 2020

Is there hope for a united Nigeria again? Will Nigeria the giant of Africa overcome the threat of disintegration? Will Nigeria's dwindling economy ever resurrect? Can Nigeria be great again? These and other issues are examined by Prince Erondu Uche, PANPIEC Director of Media and Publicity.

"The strength of the nation is in each citizen, the strength of each citizen is in the nation. Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success. None of us is as smart as all of us". Nigeria, the giant of Africa is at a critical stage of her existence. There are many national issues that need urgent attention and amicable resolve before it becomes too late. The multi ethnic nature of Nigeria makes it very difficult for misrule, injustice, nepotism and corruption to thrive without serious consequences. " The state of Nigerian nation is like that of a neglected African pregnant mother groaning in labour. With the high mortality rate in Africa, the chances of her survival is very slim". Nigeria has never been so divided in her history. Even during the civil war, Nigeria was more united than now because it was Biafra versus Nigeria only. Now almost all ethnic groups, tribes and interest groups want secession. Why? There is no smoke without fire. Our rulers both past and present are responsible for this situation. "Africa needs leaders not rulers because the difference between the two is like light and darkness". Nigeria's founding fathers would be weeping in their graves with the state of things now.

The crises in Nigeria has given birth to the emergence of five major schools of thought by 2020. These are the schools of thought; The first school of thought wants Nigeria to continue the way it is as an almost failed state with the belief that one day the bible miracle will happen and it will become better. Those in this group are those who are believed to be the beneficiaries of the nation's problems. The second school of thought advocates that Nigeria should disintegrate from "the unholy marriage" as they tag it, let each tribe, ethnic group and interest groups become countries of their own. 'To your tenth oh Isreal'. Proponents of this school of thought believe that a particular tribe or clan is in control of the country's leadership and resources at the detriment of other tribes and ethnic groups. This group is made of young people, elites who believe in equality of all citizens, those against western civilisation and those who want to control the resources extracted from their localities. The third school of thought wants Nigeria to be restructured with more powers given to regions as it were in the beginning and how true federalism is practiced other than what we have today where the whole power is at the centre. They want unadulterated federalism. Proponents of this school of thought are elites, interest groups, elder statesmen who wish Nigeria well, those who witnessed a prosperous Nigeria in the first republic and those who believe we can get the best out of our diversity. The fourth school of thought is of the opinion that the next President of Nigeria that will emerge in 2023 to succeed President Mohammadu Buhari should be of Igbo extraction. Proponents of this opinion are elites, those who believe in equality of all citizens, those who believe that the injustice against Igbo extraction should end, those who see Nigeria's population as added advantage for development and those who preach peace and believe that the industrious power of Igbo will delete Nigeria from the list of third worlds. This group is the most popular and accepted school of thought. The last school of thought wants all old hands in the game and politicians above sixty years of age to vacate all elective and appointed political positions and hand over to the youths. This group, mostly youths and elites are of the opinion that past and present rulers who are now grandfathers and great grandfathers got into power as youths and by moral standards should retire and handover to the youths. They also believe that Nigeria can only develop when youths who own this generation are in governance at all levels.

In response to the yearnings of the masses, the All Progressives Congress, APC led federal government has displayed lack of political will in restructuring the country. The reason for this lackadaisical response is still unknown. In an ideal society and where democracy is being practiced, the will of the people is what the government of the day carries out. For example, the united states of America and some western states who allow gay marriage do so because the majority of their people want it, it is the will of the people no matter how bad it appears to be for those who oppose it. In Nigeria the government forces its will and policies on the people which is against the ethics of Democratic governance. On the other hand, it will take the bible miracle for any Nigerian government to do like developed nations do where issues of secession is advocated for which is to conduct a referendum and subsequently allow people to be on their own as they wish. While no patriotic Nigerian would want us to continue like this without positive change, Political analysts do not believe that this present day politicians will willingly step aside for the youths to take over not minding that they started as youths. "Good elders are those who plant trees they know they won't be alive to take shade under them". The school of thought with upper hand and more chances to be the only way forward is Nigerian President of Igbo extraction come 2023.

Nigerian President of Igbo extraction promises to capture another two schools of thought when it sails through, restructuring and youths in governance. The proponents of this all inclusive school of thought believes that Igbo being patriotic and having supported Nigeria's unity deserves to be allowed to produce the next President like other tribes have been supported to produce Presidents in past. In 1999, the major two political parties nominated two yorubas Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Chief Olu Falae as their Presidential candidates. This was done in order to pacify the Yoruba nation for the annulled 1993 June 12 election. In 2019, the two major political parties nominated Gen. Mohammadu Buhari and Alh. Atiku Abubarka as their Presidential candidates. This was done to make sure that the north completes its second term which was distorted due to Umaru Yar' Adua's death.

In a recent town hall meeting organized by Pan Nigeria President of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC the umbrella body controlling all groups campaigning for Igbo to produce the next president after Mohammadu Buhari in 2023, it stated that Nigeria president of Igbo extraction project is championed by youths, the Director of Media and Publicity Prince Erondu Uche PEU is a youth. It noted that eighty percent of the group is made of youths. According to the group, an Igbo as President will restructure Nigeria and address other national issues. The group further said that the problem of insecurity, power, infrastructure and the dwindling economy will be properly addressed. In support of this, political, economic and social Analysts believe that the industrious power of the Igbos will come into play and make Nigeria develop rapidly when Igbo man or woman becomes Nigerian President in 2023.

The call for all to support Nigeria President of Igbo extraction in 2023 is a welcome development. An Igbo occupying the number one position in Nigeria is what is needed to end all forms of agitations and usher in good governance. It will further prove that Nigeria as an entity appreciates Igbo's contributions to her unity. Some scholars have forecasted that the failure of Igbo becoming the next President in 2023 will spell doom for the nation. Some say there will be another civil war, while others believe Nigeria will cease to exist before or by 2023. It is therefore important that all political parties and stakeholders should support Igbo to succeed President Mohammadu Buhari in 2023. Ignoring this call by eminent Nigerians for whatever reason will not be in the interest of the nation.

Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC the umbrella body of all the groups championing for Igbo to be President in 2023 wishes to console the immediate family of the former Kaduna State Governor and Elder Statesman, Balarabe Musa and Kaduna state Government over the death of the former Governor.

The demise of Balarabe Musa has thrown the entire PANPIEC family into mourning. The late Elder Statesman was a strong supporter of PANPIEC and was to speak in PANPIEC programme titled ' Handshake across the Benue'. The programme which was slated to hold on November 5, 2020 but was postponed to December 2020 due to #ENDSARS PROTEST.

The late Elder Statesman was a fearless, vocal and patriotic Nigerian. A man who wished to see a better, fruitful and a nation all would be proud of is gone. Among other things he did, his love for a united Nigeria void of injustice could be seen for his unalloyed support for PANPIEC and Igbo to be the next President after President Buhari in 2023. We urge Kaduna state and all his followers to maintain his legacies in order to immortalise him.

By this release, Kaduna state and FCT chapters of PANPIEC, all Northern Zonal Coordinators and National Officers resident in Abuja are mandated to attend the funeral.

We pray God to grant his soul eternal rest.

Politics / PANPIEC Media/Publicity Director PEU Writes Open Letter To Nigerian Youths by Saintbossman: 9:39am On Nov 02, 2020
Prince Erondu Uche PEU the Director of Media and Publicity of Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC had written an open letter to Nigerian youths. The letter was made available to news men by 8am on Monday November 2nd 2020 in Lagos.

In the letter he congratulated the youths for coming together to speak with one voice. He condemned the act of putting all blames on President Mohhammadu Buhari and urged them to hold all our leaders accountable for their personal failures.
He advised the youths to insist that come 2023 that Igbo should be the next President.

See the letter below.

Date; 02/11/2020
From Prince Erondu Uche PEU

Dear Nigerian youths,

I congratulate you on your triumph over ethnic bias and coming together with one indivisible voice to speak against injustice and police brutality in Nigeria.

I condemn in its totality the destruction of lives and properties which characterized the later part of the protest. The killing of innocent youths at Lekki, Lagos and other parts of Nigeria including policemen was uncalled for. Those behind the killing of the innocent will not escape the wroth of God in this life and in the afterlife. I therefore advice all youths to shun all activities that will hinder our quest for a better society. I also wish to advice those who sponsor violence and preach tribal sentiment to desist from this outdated manipulation because our youths are wiser now.

The same way you genuinely and peaceful seek for justice against police brutality in Nigeria, is the same way in our different states, local governments and constituencies the youths should hold all past and present political leaders at all levels accountable now. As we demand for justice and good governance, let us start from our immediate environments and states. Those we voted into power must account for us now. These include Governors, Senators, Federal House of Representative members, State House of Assembly members, Local Government Chairpersons and Councilors. Others include all Political Officeholders like Ministers, Ambassadors, Commissioners, Special Assistances and others not missing anyone at all levels. Others to hold accountable on moral grounds are Career people who have risen to reasonable heights without making positive impacts on their people like Permanent Secretaries etc, after all most of them were considered for high positions to favour their people.

It is unjust to heap all blames on President Mohhamadu Buhari. I condemn the looting of warehouses where covid '19 palliatives were kept, you don't correct evil with evil. Nigerian Governors should explain to the world what the palliatives were doing in those stores months after the lockdown. During the lockdown, the number of people killed by hunger and those who were jailed because they stole as result of hunger were not reported. It is high time we hold each leader accountable for his or her did.

Our Governors should explain to us what they do with heavy security votes that run into several millions given to them on monthly basis. Are these monies meant to secure our states or pocket money for them? If for security purposes, which state is secured in Nigeria? Is security votes justified in our States? Why do we still have insurgency, banditry, kidnapping in our different states? Leaders at all levels who fail should be recalled or asked to resign now.

The best way to tackle insecurity in Nigeria is prevention. Nigerian insecurity is mostly caused by poverty as a result of high rate of unemployment and the best way to fight it is to create jobs. Some states receive above 800 Million Naira every 30 days. 800 Million naira can build a minimum of 4 large factories that will employ thousands of our youths. Imagine how our States and Country would be if our Governors build 4 factories every month with the security votes of each state, 48 factories every year and about 192 factories every four years. Our federal lawmakers should give account of constituency projects meant to develop their areas.
If this is done, Nigeria will be safe for all and our youths will not be dying on the Mediterranean sea in search of better lives.

"Youths who are leaders today are those who reject Africa's slogan of deceit which says that youths are the leaders of tomorrow. They replace endless tomorrow with today". Youths should take over the leadership of this nation if we intend to develop. This generation of leaders have failed us as most of them confess now. However, the good and patriotic among them would play adversary role.

The time to end praise singing of these recycled politicians who have deprived us of good life is now. The time to end political thuggery, vote buying/selling, support for old men in politics etc is now. We should say no to politicians and political parties who have no ideologies. We should go beyond "I will give you water, good roads and electricity". We should compete with other nations of the world.

Almost all our past and present political leaders became top leaders at their twenties and thirties. Let us appeal to them all to retire now and hand over to the youths. Nigerian youths have all it takes to salvage this country.

Finally, in the spirit of Justice, fairness and equity which Nigerian youths represent, I urge you to support and ensure that Igbo becomes the next President in 2023.

Accept the assurance of my warmth regards.

Yours in the same struggle for
A better Nigeria.

Prince Erondu Uche. PEU.
Politics / Place Buhari & Governors On Level 17 Salary Scale INSA Advocates by Saintbossman: 11:16am On Oct 24, 2020


PRESS RELEASE 24/10/2020

Igbo National Stakeholders' Assembly INSA condemns in strong terms the killing of #ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Lagos state. The protesters were exercising their right, killing them in cold blood is a crime against humanity.

The call to scrap the defunct Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) and reform the police force is a sign that the entire security structure in Nigeria have failed woefully. It is only in Nigeria that people die in large number every day for more than ten years now. Bokoharam terrorists, fulani killer herdsmen, bandits, kidnappers kill hundreds of Nigerians on daily basis. The primary assignment of government to protect lives and properties in Nigeria does not work. The killing of our youths who were doing peaceful protest in Lekki has shown that Nigeria and Lagos state governments have failed and should apologize to Nigerians. Responsive Countries who value lives provide security for her protesters not watch them being slaughtered only to play blame games.

It beats our imagination that the call by Nigerians before now to remove all security chiefs and replace them with qualified ones has been ignored to the detriment of Nigerians. The notion that the Nigerian security outfits cannot provide safe environment in Nigeria is a lie. The impendent is that the qualified are not allowed to head our security structures, there is no motivation for security operatives and it appears that some people who are benefiting from the insecurity are bent on seeing Nigeria destroyed.

The insecurity in Nigeria is only one part of our problems. We have a rotten and failed system yearning for holistic overhaul. Now that the youths have woken up, it is high time those in authority become pragmatic enough to stop all forms of impunity and address all issues raised and provide good governance at all levels. Turning deaf ear to this will result to anarchy and the first target will be the political class.

In order to save Nigeria from total collapse, Igbo National Stakeholders' Assembly INSA recommends the following;
1. The Lekki killing should be investigated and all involved should be meant to face the full wrath of the law.
2. All security chiefs should be sacked and replaced with qualified officers.
3. Reduction of high cost of governance. Salaries of the President, Governors, National Assembly Members and all elected/appointed political officeholders should take the toll of Nigerian civil service. The President, the vice president, governors and deputy governors should should be placed on level 17 salary scale of Nigerian civil service while the NASS members should be placed on level 15.
4. National Assembly should be a part time job with no other benefit or allowance more than that of the civil service.
5. All former governors, deputy governors holding elected or appointed positions should resign immediately, while they should be banned from holding offices.
6. All corrupt individuals irrespective of party affiliations should be prosecuted and looted funds recovered.
7. Security votes given to Governors on monthly basis should be stopped and channeled to education and research.
8. The children of all elected or appointed political officeholders should be meant to attend public schools, while them and their families will make use of public hospitals. This includes the President, Governors, NASS members etc.
9. Nigeria should be restructured.

Politics / Gov Ben Ayade Of Cross River State Halts University Tuition For Indigenes by Saintbossman: 2:23pm On Oct 23, 2020
#EndSARS: Gov Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers state Halts Tuition For Indigenes in States owned University

Cross River State Governor, Professor Ben Ayade, on Thursday announced an indefinite suspension of payment of tuition by indigenes of the state in the state-owned Cross River State University of Technology (CRUTECH),
He further extended service year for indigenes of the state who have completed their one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and are still without jobs.

The governor also constituted a seven-man judicial panel of inquiry to look into complaints of victims of police brutality with a charge on the panel to do a thorough job.
The panel which is headed by the immediate past Ag. Chief Judge of the state, Justice Michael Edem, has six other members, including representatives of youth groups.

Ayade used the occasion to reel out a number of other measures for the citizens, particularly youths, to cushion effects of the current economic reality.
The measures include a directive to each of the 18 local governments to employ 1000 workers each, while the state government will employ 2000 into its civil service,
“I have directed all chairmen of councils to make immediate recruitment of 1000 young people, which means 18000 young people into the local government workforce.

“In addition, the state civil service will also recruit additional 2000. By so doing, we have ordered the immediate employment of 20000 young people into the state and local government civil service.
“I also hereby direct that all Cross Riverians who are students of CRUTECH should suspend the payment of school fees indefinitely.
“For every single young Cross Riverian who is out of university, has finished his or her youth service and has no job, we are starting an NYSC extension service where you will return to Cross River State and extend your NYSC by one year to give us the opportunity to find a placement for you.”

According to him “For the 20000 jobs I have asked to be given immediately, we must ensure that those who benefit from these jobs are between the ages of 40 and below and it should not be for politicians, it should be for those young men and women who are struggling to earn a living.

The governor while identifying with the #EndSARS movement urged the panel to do a thorough job by ensuring that justice is not only done but seen to have been done, insisting that
“I stand with the young people of this country to say we must put an end to SARS and we must put an end to police brutality,” Ayade said.

Sports / Chief John Uche; The New Face Of Nig Professional Wrestling Federation NPWF by Saintbossman: 11:14am On Sep 11, 2020

Politics / Igbo & Yoruba Love Themselves, Only Politicians Preach Hate; Prince Erondu by Saintbossman: 5:02pm On Sep 09, 2020
The Director of Media and Publicity of Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition (PANPIEC), Prince Erondu Uche has expressed his gratitude to the Yoruba nation. In a statement made available to news men today Monday 9th December 2019 PANPIEC Spokesman said that the good relationship existing between Yoruba and Igbo should not be truncated because of the actions of some crafty political leaders. The statement reads;

"I wish to appreciate the Yoruba Nation and correct the impression that they hate Igbo. Yoruba don't hate Igbo. It has been established that Igbo and Yoruba tribes have Ancestral link. I think this explains the love and mutual understanding that exist between the duo.Some Scholars argue that Yoruba love Igbo more than any other tribe in Nigeria. The long standing good relationship between them appears to have proved this assertion beyond doubt.

After the war, Igbo who left southwest as a result of the war returned aftewards to meet their businesses and possessions intact. In the whole of Yoruba land there was no abandoned property as experienced in other regions.
Thank you.

Professor Wole Soyinka's efforts to curtail the Nigeria civil war in 1967 resulted in his arrest and imprisonment without trial by the then federal military government. Wole Soyinka was in prison while the war lasted. A forty year old vibrant Major, Francis Adekunle Fajuyi from Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state died with his boss Gen. Johnson Aguiyi Ironsi. A death he chose. He was quoted to have said "for you to kill him, you must kill me first" a request that was granted. Only few could have done this. Lieutenant colonel Victor Adebukunola Banjo from Ogun state fought alongside Biafran Soldiers against Nigerian army and was executed in the process. Also the late popular Musician Fela Kuti was quoted in 1982 to have said that he supported Biafra. The list goes on. Yoruba nation has always identified with Igbo in time of need and Igbo reciprocates.

The handshake across the Niger had long begun. The cordial relationship that exist between Afenifere and Ohanaeze is part of it. Igbo and Yoruba have the highest number of inter tribal marriage in Nigeria. What this means is that Yoruba and Igbo have become one. An example is the Ondo state Governor, Akeredolu who is married to an Igbo. A lot of good relationships have been built over the years. Dr Tunde Ajayi a chief lecturer at the university of Nigeria Nsukka, political science department has an Igbo aid who has lived with him for more than twenty years. Ajayi Among other gestures shown to the Igbo man had built a house for him in Ebonyi state, he also foot the bills of his marriage ceremonies and mother's burial. There are yoruba families whose children bear Igbo names just like three of my yoruba friends named their sons after my name. Most Igbo bear Yoruba names as well. There are good personal relationships that exist between the average Igbo and Yoruba. Most Yoruba travel yearly with their Igbo friends to celebrate Christmas in Igbo land. We are also aware that over the years some governors in the southwest receive financial assistance during campaigns from their Igbo friends. Orji Uzor Kalu was instrumental to the emergence of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo as president in 1999. Orji confessed that he went with Ibrahim Babangida to Obasanjo's house to inform him of their plan to make him the president. He never had the intention of contesting the Presidential election. Igbo loved and voted massively for late MKO Abiola. About seventy percent of Yoruba Youths who do their NYSC in Igbo land do not wish to return home after service because of the love shown to them by their host communities, residents and friends they make there.

It is wrong for us to allow these good relationships to crumble because of few selfish individuals. Those who preach hate are worst. We cannot allow them to separate us from our families and friends. They do not help or add value to the poor masses who they claim to be defending. The little help you recieve comes from your fellow average or poor man. They only hack into our emotions and use us each time they feel threatened by their friends. They are friends because after their stage managed media fight, they still dine together openly. Each time their children wed, they would shun their political differences and celebrate together while they instigate the poor masses against themselves. This must stop. Let every Igbo and Yoruba arise and see the manipulation that has been going on. These privileged turned selfish leaders are not wiser than most of you.

I therefore advise Yoruba and Igbo leaders whose personal opinions form public debate to always promote the things that bind these two tribes together. Those who sow seed of discord should retire because these two tribes have been tied together by God and evidently cannot be separated.

I wish to thank Hon.Kola Alayande the Secretary general of Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition (PANPIEC), Gen.Ishola Williams (rtd), Fani Kayode and other notable Yoruba leaders for their unalloyed support for Igbo to produce the next Nigeria President".

Politics / Groups Tackle Mamman Daura, PANPIEC Reacts, Felicitates With Muslims On Sallah by Saintbossman: 10:12am On Aug 01, 2020

Some Nigeria groups have been reacting to the comment by a nephew of President Mohammed Buhari , Mamman Daura. Among the groups include the igbo Rennaisance, Igbo Youth Congress, Yoruba united Congress, Middle Belt Consultative Forum and Network of Igbo Civil Society groups. The groups all agreed that Mamman Daura was not holistic in his analysis and should have also considered the incompetence in security and other sectors of Nigeria life and not in the political sphere alone. They affirmed that no amount of sabotage coming from any quarters would stop Igbo from producing the next president of Nigeria which they said was long overdue.

The groups made this known in a solidarity visit they paid to Prince Erondu Uche, the Director of Media and Publicity of Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC, the umbrella body for all the groups championing for Igbo to succeed President Buhari in 2023. They said that the visit was to show their unalloyed support for PANPIEC in realising its quest in making sure that Igbo becomes the next President of Nigeria. They called for political equity in 2023 by an Igbo succeeding President Mohammadu Buhari then.

In his response, Prince Erondu Uche appreciated the leaders of the groups for the solidarity visit and noted however that Mamman Daura will support Igbo at the right time. "If people like Shettima Yerima and others could see reasons to support Igbo, every other stakeholder would do same. We would reach out to them, our men are making consultations across the nation. I will personally see Mamman Daura. Our approach is not to fight anyone or group but to convince them with genuine reasons".

Prince Erondu appreciated Chief Nnia Nwodo, the President General and Chuks Ibegbu, the Spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide for their support for PANPIEC. He also thanked all Nigerians now joining PANPIEC in droves assuring that the project will be realised.

Politics / Battle of The Rulers And The Ruled "THE GOOD SON"; A Poem By Prince Erondu Uche by Saintbossman: 11:23am On Jul 24, 2020
PUBLISHED DATE; 24/07/2020.

How come we allowed him enter our cabal to Spoil! Good for nothing boy! Naught boy!

My Lords I wish to speak, a female voice whispered in the hearts of the carnivorous doves. What offence did this boy commit? Is openness, following due process, putting the peoples' interest first, being a servant leader and doing the right thing at the right time a crime?

Wait! One of the tormentors of the masses shouted as he touched his torn crown. Does he not know that every society is owned? Openness is a weak and forbidden word in the corridors of our power! Good or bad is a brand and we make it! We decide the fate of all!

The ongoing battle between the ruled and the rulers is getting interestingly better. The ruled and tormented are getting surprisingly wiser. The dark continent's power house is full of sheep who eat human babies for breakfast, consume elders' brain for lunch and devour pregnant mothers for dinner. They begin and end every meeting with prayer on agenda of lies. Doves who suck the blood of their people. See them. Their flamboyance is only an appearance of deceit. Wretched, poor but rich miserable men whose exploitation of the poor end only in apocalypse. 15,000 naira, a compromised judgement, unending curse upon damned judges of hell and their bloody cohorts. United in treachery but arch enemies in covens. Africa needs leaders not rulers because the difference between the two is like light and darkness.

Young lady! The holy one put you in our hearts not to control us but to advice! We see him as a bad son! That is final! How can he give food meant for us living gods to the poor masses? One of the holy devils said sarcastically as he collected the mind twister again, a plate of wheat, cursed bitter leaf soup, and one bottle as payment for betraying his blood brother.

My Lords why not let the people live as freemen? The soft voice asked almost crying.

Evil controlled society is made up of few tormentors but largely populated by cowards and foolish majority who are voluntary slaves. In such society, evil is branded good while good is branded evil. They are righteous devils who occupy front seats at worship centres. They preach peace with rifles, sing hymns, clap unholy hands filled with innocent blood and use human skull as musical instruments. They celebrate and honour criminals with titles but tag good sons bad ones.

I know you changeth not from your evil ways said the lady with the soft voice as she crieth to God of Justice. If I am a man, I will be like him, the good son. A good son is one whose family is evil but decides to do good, one who chooses the peoples' interest above few cabals. If only I am a man, I will be a good son because he is a man of the people and God is always with him.

Politics / 2023 Zoning; Prince Erondu Applauds Frm Governor, Senate President Ahmed Lawan by Saintbossman: 8:14am On Jul 21, 2020

The Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition PANPIEC has applauded the immediate past Governor of Zamfara state, Alhaji Abdulazeez Yari for throwing his weight behind the zoning of 2023 Presidency to the south.

PANPIEC in a statement signed by its Spokesman Prince Erondu Uche appreciated the former Governor for coming out boldly to defend Justice. According to the PANPIEC Chieftain, the position of Alh. Abdulazeez Yari, Alh. Shettima Yerima and other notable Northern Stakeholders have shown that North stands for truth and justice. Alh. Yari had recently said that APC would zone 2023 Presidency to the south.

Prince Erondu Uche also thanked the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan for disassociating himself with his alleged Presidential ambition being speculated in some quarters, stating that such ambition would amount to swimming against the tide and committing political suicide. He advised the Senate president and other northern political leaders not to allow mischief makers to drag their name in the mud by linking them with presidential ambitions in 2023. "Only those who are benefiting from political instability in Nigeria would work against Igbo becoming the President of Nigeria in 2023. Look at the current structure, the President is north, vice president is west, senate president is north and the speaker of house of representative is west, from number one to four no Igbo. Look at how divided we are today, Nigeria has never been so divided. The mood of the nation now is to unite Nigeria again by ensuring that Igbo becomes the next president. This is the true and only way forward for our country".

In another development, the southeast coordinators and Greece Coordinator of PANPIEC converged in Owerri the IMO state capital on July 18th 2020 to welcome the Director of Media and Publicity of the group, Prince Erondu Uche and his entourage who are on a Nationwide consultation tour of all ethnic groups in Nigeria.

The southeast zonal coordinator/Diaspora Liaison Officer Chief Frank Obineme and PANPIEC Greece coordinator HRH, Hon. Nduka O. Alexis who also is the Eze Ndigbo in Greece led the southeast coordinators to welcome the PANPIEC chieftain and his entourage. Also in attendance were the Spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chuks Ibegbu and the youth President of Ohanaeze Imo state chapter.
Politics / PAINIEC Begins Tour Of All Ethnic Nationalities, Visits OHANAEZE PG Nnia Nwodo by Saintbossman: 11:43pm On Jul 17, 2020

Politics / 2023; Confusion As PANPIEC Partners Shettima Yerima, Denies Endorsing Orji Kalu by Saintbossman: 11:28am On Jul 11, 2020

There is indication that the National President of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum ( AYCF) , Alhaji Shettima Yerima may have settled his differences with PANPIEC Chieftain, Prince Erondu Uche and finally yielded to pressure to partner with Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction PANPIEC the umbrella body for all groups championing for Igbo to become President after President Muhammad Buhari in 2023.

Yerima had recently declared his full support for Igbo and Southeast in particular to produce the next Nigeria President in 2023. He also pleaded with all Northern Power brokers to support Igbo for the interest of Justice and peace in Nigeria.

Alhaji Shettima Yerima who acknowledged PANPIEC effort in it's quest to bring unity in Nigeria threw his weight behind the former Governor of Abia state, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu as his Candidate for the number one position. Following Alh. Yerima's support for PANPIEC and subsequent endorsement of Orji Kalu, there is speculation that PANPIEC may have through its new romance with Yerima settled to present the former Abia state Governor as the most qualified candidate.

However in a swift reaction, Prince Erondu Uche debunked an online newspaper's claim that Alhaji Shettima Yerima's reconciliation with him who he had been in loggerhead with over zoning of 2023 Presidency may not be unconnected to Kalu's endorsement. The Spokesman of PANPIEC Prince Uche who appreciated Alh.Yerima's support for PANPIEC and Ndigbo denied joining Shettima Yerima in the endorsement of Orji Uzor Kalu.

Responding to questions via a telephone chat with a Reporter, Prince Erondu Uche said that the group he represents is only interested in Igbo becoming the next President in 2023 with no particular candidate in focus. However that Yerima is free to support any Igbo candidate of his choice. " My clash of opinion with that of Yerima does not necessarily mean we were fighting each other but I am glad that Alh. Shettima Yerima has finally accepted to support what we have been telling him and other notable Nigerians to do. I believe others would also support PANPIEC. We are still negotiating with more people. As of the endorsement of Sen. Kalu, I did not at anytime make such endorsement not because I am against him but because PANPIEC is only interested in Igbo becoming the next president in 2023 with no particular candidate in focus. Nigerians will choose from among several qualified Igbo men and women which Sen. Uzor Kalu is one when the time comes".

Below are the details.

National President of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum ( AYCF) ,Alhaji Shettima Yerima, has pleaded with the northern power brokers to consider supporting a candidate of Igbo extraction for the 2023 election for peace and stability sake in the country .

This is even as he declared support for former Governor of Abia state, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu as the North’s most preferred presidential candidate , revealing that International Community and many Consultative forums in the north are also rooting for Kalu .

Shettima Yerima is a member of the coalition that wanted Igbo people sent packing from the North in 2017.
He is also a member of the coalition that established Operation Shege Ka Fasa, the northern version of the regional security outfit that was raised by the South-West, Amotekun

In an exclusive interview he granted the press on Thursday night in Abuja , Yerima also defended the North saying that political pundits and opinion builders are not always right in their description and perception of the North.

According to the Arewa leader , “ those thinking that we don’t like the Igbo and that the North will not support them for 2023 presidency are totally wrong . The whole country cannot function without its part and the South East is part of the whole . I am not fighting Prince Erondu Uche. We had different views before now and I must commend the great work he is doing and join forces to restore peace,unity and justice in our country ".

“Notwithstanding the fact that the North still need another term after President Buhari; the right, honourable and just thing to do is to support South East achieve their presidential goal in 2023. It will help to stabilize the country. The country need healing and greater unity and the best thing to do is to give total support to the people of the South East .

“The South-West has had their complete tenure through President Olusegun Obasanjo, South-South had had a tenure through President Goodluck Jonathan and South-East has not gotten it in the new dispensation.

Speaking further, he noted that “South East being among the three regional power blocks and geopolitical structures to which the British relinquished power at independence in 1960 need a seat at the Centre

“So to have another president in 2023 that is not Igbo would be unjust, inequitable and unfair. With the presidency having by national consensus rotated between the north and the southwest, 2023 should be the turn of the Igbos. There is no just, fair and equitable reason to delay the rotation of the presidency to the southeast by another presidential election in 2023.” He said.

The Arewa Leader said that every Nigerian is entitled to his ambition, adding that doing the right thing is his utmost concern .

” We are talking of doing the right thing here . We shouldn’t just be buried in our ambition, we should also consider posterity, stability and unity of this country . When you talk of ally , you talk about those who have been with us since inception. You talk about those that the North considers as loyal brothers . Don’t think that the North will look the other way when the chips are down . As long as I know, many Consultative forums in the North are rooting for Former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu. He is detribalized enough to have the trust of entire Nigerians . He has the wherewithal and capacity to turn the economy of this country around. I can assure you that he is the most preferred candidate of the North from the entire south. Even as a devout Christian, we know how he accommodated muslims in his state when he was governor. We knew how he built several mosques for them . Even the international community are rooting for him, so the North is not the only people in this" .
Politics / PDP Chieftain Disowns Governor Suswam Over 2023 Zoning Comment, PANPIEC Reacts by Saintbossman: 11:31am On Jul 08, 2020

A Chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party PDP Hon. Innocent Okon Nwachukwu has dismissed the alleged comment credited to the former governor of Benue state Gabriel Torwua Suswam that PDP will zone 2023 Presidency to the north. Speaking in Abuja, Hon. Nwachukwu said that PDP is yet to take such decision and that he doubted if Gabriel Suswam who is in no position to decide for PDP could have made such inflammatory statement. "Suswam I know cannot say such a thing".

Okon noted that the PDP is a party built on justice and will take a decision that will reflect the mood of the nation and not the whims and caprices of a single individual. He warned against statements that do not reflect the view of the party noting that PDP for now is focused on how to reclaim Edo state from APC.

Reacting to the development, the Spokesman of the PAN NIGERIA PRESIDENCY OF IGBO EXTRACTION COALITION , PANPIEC the umbrella body of all groups championing the Nigerian Presidency of Igbo Extraction in 2023 , Prince Erondu Uche noted that Governor Suswam's comment was uncharitable at this point when Nigerians are trying to build a national healing and consensus by ensuring that an Igbo succeeds President Mohammadu Buhari in 2023.
He noted that the PDP key organs have not made such statement wondering who is behind Governor Suswam . He advised the Ex Governor not to allow himself to be used as an Apostle of injustice as well as being used to test the waters, noting that such is not in the best interest of the nation.
He directed the Benue state chapter and North Central zone of PANPIEC to reach the Ex Governor to find out why he made such a disturbing comment.

As the nation is getting reading to go to poll for the 2023 general elections, 30 prominent Nigerian activists, academics, and other professionals, have formed a new political movement called National Consultative Front (NCF) .

Part of the he group’s objectives they said include; mobilizing Nigerians for a popular mass action towards political constitutional reforms that are citizen-driven and process-led in engendering a new peoples’ constitution for the country.

The new group disclosed this via a communique at their National Secretariat, in Abuja, on Wednesday which they said was after a month-long nationwide consultations and virtual meetings.

Listed as members of the 30-member strong steering committee for the NCF include: Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’abba; former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia; Olisa Agbakoba, SAN; Femi Falana SAN; Col.

The group will be unveiled to the public later this month. Part of the resolutions adopted after the meeting read in part, “A new ideological mass Movement shall be initiated to embark on immediate mass mobilisation of the nooks and crannies of the country for popular mass action towards political constitution reforms that is citizens-driven and process-led in engendering a new Peoples’ Constitution for a new Nigeria that can work for all.

“The new movement shall also, without delay, mobilise for the economic wellbeing and prosperity of all Nigerians by demanding and ensuring that Chapter 2 of the present Constitution i.e.; “Fundamental Objectives & Directive Principles of State Policy becomes justiciable once and for all, while also mounting an articulate and vigorous campaign to deconstruct and reconstruct obnoxious election laws which have provided leeway for opportunists in the corridor of power to subvert the will of the electorate making voting irrelevant in determining who actually becomes elected in Nigeria.”

Members of the group expressed sadness that the nation’s political leadership has failed to protect Nigerians from the activities of bandits, armed robbers, and terrorists.

They also said it was time for Nigerians of good conscience to come together to deliver the nation from descending into chaos due to the absence of credible leadership.

The communique further read, “Our Political Coalition wish to assert that the current factionalisation and imbroglio rocking dominant political parties in Nigeria as well as the heightening political tension in the country, especially within the Nigerian ruling class, have further given credence to our resolve and intervention to provide a credible alternative political class and leadership for Nigeria as most of those who pride themselves as Leaders of our country in the last twenty-one years of civil rule have proved to be huge failures and burden to the wellbeing of our people

“To this end, we decry in categorical terms, the ongoing mindless massacre and kidnappings in the North West, North East, Southern Kaduna, the Middle Belt, Southern part of Nigeria and in fact the country at large by armed bandits and insurgents, who invade our communities, especially at night to inflict terror and murder on hapless residents and unsuspecting indigenes.

“We hereby call on those presently in charge of our Federal Government, military, and security apparatus to immediately wake up and do everything to stop the ongoing senseless pogrom against the masses of our people.”

The full communique reads;



Against the worrisome background of the continued slide of Nigeria into political anarchy and unabated bloodletting and deaths, owing to the incompetence and failure of the present political leadership of the country in dealing with the national democratic question of Nigeria as a diverse multi ethnic, multi religious and multi cultural entity, We, a select group of National Leaders of Conscience, Social Democrats and Revolutionary Ideologues, have been in consultations under the auspices of a new Pan Nigerian Consultative Political Front with other like-minded Fresh breed political Ideologues and Stakeholders, beginning from Wednesday, 27th May 2020 to Friday, 12 June 2020 trying to agree on a new political intervention for rescuing our dear country from the exploitative grip of a lacklustre leadership and the manipulation of a bickering, factionalised ruling political elites in Nigeria

Our nationwide consultations, essentially, motivated by patriotic concerns of Stakeholders regarding the chaotic and insecure state of Nigeria, an unfortunate situation basically induced by the country’s self serving politicians and rulers, were held largely within the prevailing ambience of the new Webinar communications technology, with a clear vision of building a new disciplined/competent Political leadership for the liberation of Nigeria’s muzzled democracy and hijacked State powers

Therefore, We of the new patriotic association of select Leaders of Conscience and Stakeholders in Project Nigeria, having undertaken thorough and painstaking deliberations and dialogue on the agenda to save our country from imminent political collapse and civil strife hereby wish to announce the outcomes of the historic national consultations and engagements as follows:


1. The facilitating Secretariat of the National Consultative Front is mandated to immediately facilitate an interim steering coordinating council made up of experienced leaders of conscience and Democratic Ideologues to drive a new popular political intervention for urgently save Nigeria from the precipice of political anarchy and civil strife. The provisional leadership shall be inclusive and collegiate in structure, capturing the critical segments and crucial essence of the Nigerian diversity, in inspiring substantial confidence, trust, sense of belonging and ownership from all Stakeholders aligned within the new initiative notwithstanding social, cultural, religious and gender differences; such that every Nigerian can easily become a stakeholder and automatically imbibe a common sense of commitment and duty towards mass support, ownership and control of the new Movement slated for launching this month as a counter force to the current politics of moneybags, highest bidders and the cash and carry harakiri prevalent under the mercantilist ruling elites in Nigeria

2. A new ideological mass Movement shall be initiated to embark on an immediate mass mobilisation of the nooks and crannies of the country for popular mass action towards political constitution reforms that is citizens-driven and process-led in engendering a new Peoples’ Constitution for a new Nigeria that can work for all. The new movement shall also, without delay, mobilise for the economic wellbeing and prosperity of all Nigerians by demanding and ensuring that Chapter 2 of the present Constitution i e; Fundamental Objectives & Directive Principles of State Policy becomes justiceable once and for all, while also mounting an articulate and vigorous campaign to deconstruct and reconstruct obnoxious election laws which have provided leeway for opportunists in the corridor of power to subvert the will of the electorates making voting irrelevant in determining who actually becomes elected in NIgeria.

3. That due to the critical deficiency identified in the governance of Nigeria, especially as regards the question of competence, discipline, cohesion and lack of democratic best practices among the present ruling class; a problem emanating from the dearth of principled, disciplined and ideologically motivated Political class and the absence of democratically birthed and ideologically inspired Political parties in the country; currently breeding factional and chaotic political emissions within the country’s ruling political parties; the new Movement shall undertake, as its key mandate, the conscious cultivation/building of a new ideologically disciplined alternative Political class as well as the formation of a new formidable ideologically driven, democratic mega political platform through popular Mobilisation to provide a reliable ideological leadership for the country, while positioning the masses for electoral power as was done by ANC in South Africa.

5. Consequently, the Secretariat of the National Consultative Front has been mandated to review and tease out lessons from certain past initiatives and interventions, so as to enrich & strengthen the new initiative in such a way that mistakes are not repeated and risks can be easily mitigated in the growth and expansion of the new Movement. Similarly, it was also resolved that the Secretariat should create massive awareness and sensitization about the bankrupt political and economic situation of the country vis a vis the historical mission of the new movement’s agenda to deliver the country from its present comatose state and stem its fast decline into a failed state. To this end, the Secretariat shall engage in conscious mass mobilisation and careful recruitment of revolutionary and true Change Agents in the media, academia, grassroots; among the Women, Youths, Artisan, Vulnerable Nigerians for the purpose of organising to engender a new Nigeria that works for all.

6. The new mass movement shall deploy a dual approach in its national and public engagement by expounding a combination of ideological and pragmatic perspectives, especially in its communications in the mass/social media and its outreach to the grassroots and the everyday Nigerians. This is with the aim of clearly exposing everything wrong with Nigeria’s current governance system and its political architecture, while providing viable and workable alternatives and simplifying our new ideological mission and agenda for the country so as to make it easily understandable and interpretable for effective buy-in of every Nigerian.

7. That the emerging mass movement shall constantly consult with credible fraternal political elders for their solidarity, while consistently slating policy issues for debate & engagements at the grassroots in developing the political consciousness and culture of the ordinary people on the street for them to realize and understand how to collectively change the demoralising and demobilising narrative and situation in Nigeria without having to give up but instead take ownership of the country through solidarity with like-minded Stakeholders, based on a new conviction and confidence motivated that the country can work in the hands of a new principled and disciplined leadership

Based on the above Resolutions, the following Action Plans are hereby adopted by the new National Consultative Front:

After due consideration, the National Consultative Front hereby initiates a 30 persons Interim Steering Coordinating Team of Eminent National Leaders of Conscience based on the diversity of Nigeria to henceforth pioneer and supervise the agenda, mission and engagements of the National Consultative Front towards the agenda for a new Nigeria. The Interim Steering Council shall operate as a collegiate leadership within the frame of a Rotational Chairmanship based on Geo Politics, Gender etc of its membership and shall have the responsibility of leading and supervising the planning and mobilisation process of our Political Agenda until the end of January, 2021, when the new political initiative shall be expected to transform fully into a major mass Movement in Nigeria enroute the birth of a revolutionary super mega Political Party by the adoption of an existing allied Political Party or the registration of a new electoral platform to be formally launched by June, 2021 at a major National Political Summit/Convention, where its first substantive National Executives shall be elected and inaugurated.


The following National Leaders of Conscience, Social democrats and Revolutionary Ideologues have been nominated, in no particular order of importance but in reflection of Nigerian National diversity, into the Interim National Steering Team, which is to operate with no permanent Leader but a monthly rotational chairmanship on the basis of geo political zones, Gender, political antecedent and reputation as follows:
