Billionaire Arthur Eze has said that it will take the intervention of God before an Igbo man can become the president in Nigeria.
Arthur Eze who spoke with journalists advised the Igbo tribe to love themselves which is the first thing they need to do to achieve to produce a president in Nigeria.
Speaking on his prefered kind of person for the seat of president, he said, “I would prefer someone who has conscience; somebody who will remember me. I don’t care where you come from.”
“For the Igbo to be President, they must love themselves. Do they love themselves? The North is very kind. If you go to northern Nigerian, you will see churches everywhere,” he said.
“There are churches in Kano, Sokoto, Kaduna, Abuja and others yet they say there is hatred. Do we (Igbo) love ourselves?
“Only God can make an Igbo man President. We shall pray to God to find an Igbo man who has character to help people.
“I went to the north, they didn’t know who I was. They gave me $12 million for the construction of Kano TV in 1980. I didn’t have one naira then. It was the same thing in Katsina, Borno and Kaduna. Then, they put me in the oil business.
“They didn’t care where I came from.”
