The Oluwo of Iwoland, Osun State,Oba Abdurasheed Akanbi, has said that South Easterners would find it difficult to produce the president of Nigeria soon until they are ready to accommodate other tribes to flourish in Igbo land.

Oba Akani advised Ndigbo to have a rethink in their approach to socio economic development of Nigeria to brighten their political destiny.

The traditional ruler in a statement by his Press Secretary, Alli Ibrahim, on Sunday, said people everywhere allowed other tribes to own a land, be conducive and thrive in their domains except the South Easterners who deprived other people from owning a land in their places.

He also condemned the Monday sit-at-home order in the South East geopolitical zone of the country which was foisted on the indigenes and residents by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), maintaining that “such self inflicted punishment is not only inimical to their survival but also to the growth of the nation.

He explained that a Nigerian should be able to live and own land anywhere within the territorial space of Nigeria.

“I have people from across Nigeria in Iwo including the South Easterners, they did not only have their businesses but also build their houses and own farm lands. Such is not only peculiar to Iwo but to other parts of the country except the south east. A Nigerian in Nigeria should be able to own land anywhere.

“The in house style by south easterners is barbaric. They go out their zone to establish businesses and even settled their family but refused to allow people within our country to have similar access to their land. Such is not only detrimental to their economic viability but also to their political recognition. As a traditional ruler, I can’t trust a south easterners as my president.

“You can’t be a leader on sectional interest. With such unsophisticated, primitive and uncivilized thinking, no Nigerians from other zones will vote you as their president,” Oluwo stated.
