The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has refuted Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s accusation that he made a provocative comment about the 2023 presidential election.

While denying the assertion that he made that Igbo cannot produce a Nigerian president, Oba Akanbi stated that “the Igbo people are my own.” I’m Igbo at heart. I’ve made significant investments in maintaining Nigeria’s unity and will continue to do so.”

Oluwo, speaking through Chief Press Secretary Alli Ibraheem on Wednesday, said Ohanaeze Ndigbo clearly misunderstood his message.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, he added, is a respected organisation that represents a smart, intellectual, diligent, cosmopolitan, industrious, and enlightened race.

“I’m one of the major monarchs lobbying for an unified Nigeria, equality, and justice, particularly for the Igbo tribe,” Oluwo says, “since I myself have been marginalised.”

“I’ve made significant investments in maintaining Nigeria’s unity and will continue to do so.” I anticipated the Eastern Security Network (ESN) and The IPOB to quickly remove the sit-in order, which I believe they can do with the help of stakeholders and Ohanaeze Ndigbo. I’ve gone out to respectable monarchs from the East, particularly the Obi of Onitsha and Igwe Agubuzuo of Enugu.”

“In a unified state, the delimited restriction is a self-inflicted penalty.” No monarch understands the plight of the Igbos as I do. Before leaping on the media, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo should learn more about my actions. If people perceive it that way, my message is beneficial to them.”
