2023: Muslim group urges Gov Ugwuanyi to contest for President 

*Says Nigeria needs a unifying factor 






A Northern based religious group under the aegis of United Muslim Ummah League (UMUL) has thrown it’s weight behind Igbo Presidency come 2023 and urged Governor Ugwuanyi to contest. 

The Muslim group said it was high time the other five geo-political zone  in the interest of equity , fairness and Justice agree to support the Igbo to occupy the seat of the President .

According to the group, now that out of the three major tribes in Nigeria , the Yoruba  and Hausa tribes  have had their fair share of taste of power , it would be only fair for all  political parties to equally  zone power to the Eastern region to avoid unnecessary tension due to agitation for secession ahead of the election.

The United Muslim Ummah League, in a  statement jointly signed by the National Coordinator, National Secretary and Publicity Secretary ,Mallam Abubakar Mustapha , Sheikh Sanda Almisry and  Mallam Jamil Arafat , said: “As a religious group with concerns for unity progress and development of Nigeria, we resolved to make case for Igbo Presidency with hope that all the Biafra agitations threatening our existence as a sovereign nation will stop immediately.

“It’s against this background that we have picked  the former House of Representatives member and current Governor of  Enugu State,  Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi “Gburugburu” as one of the most  receptive  leaders  and  unifying factor in the South-East geo-political zone  to heed to our clarion call and agree to come out and contest.

“Nigeria is bleeding and needs a bridge builder and leader  with reputation for sound leadership prowess, economic knowledge and requisite experience to ensure even development across all states of the federation.”

“From our records, we discovered that it is only Enugu State that the Governor has deliberately worked assiduously to ensure that  Christians and Muslims live in peace. We have discovered too that our Northern brothers  in Enugu are protected each time there were threats of breach of peace in the east.”

“We will not forget how Governor Ugwuanyi immediately used his power as the Chief Security Officer of the State to deploy security agencies to restore peace after a religious crisis broke out in Nssuka area last year.”

“Though two mosques were destroyed following  the protest , he didn’t waste time to give order for  immediate rebuilding of the two affected mosques ,which were handed over  to the Nsukka Muslim community.”

While reiterating the call for Nigerians across other geo-political zones to  join the cry for Igbo Presidency come 2023, the Muslim group said ”  part of our reasons for rooting for Governor Ugwuanyi are his high level of compassion, tolerance, resilience, dedication, commitment, bridge-building spirit.”

“We also strongly believe that  Governor Ifeanyi Ugwunayi  if elected will replicate the steps taken in Enugu State to promoting peace, security, national unity and good governance.”
