After 2023 presidential elections, political alignments and realignments are taking center stage as group of Igbo elders pledged their support for the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The elders, who cut across various sectors of the Igbo community, made this declaration during a meeting. They cited Tinubu’s track record of leadership and his commitment to the unity of Nigeria as reasons for their support.
During the meeting, the elders were seen passionately singing an allegiance anthem to Tinubu, pledging their loyalty and support for his candidacy. They also urged other Igbo people to join them in supporting Tinubu’s administration.
This development is significant, as the Igbo people have historically supported the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), which is seen as a more inclusive and accommodating party for minority groups in Nigeria.
However, recent political developments and the emergence of Tinubu as a president-elect may be shifting political allegiances in the Igbo community.
It remains to be seen how this declaration of support from Igbo elders will impact the upcoming presidential elections.
It is clear that Tinubu’s emergence is gaining traction across the country, and his message of unity and progress is resonating with a growing number of Nigerians.
