Igbos Should Only Vote for the Party That Will Guarantee An Igbo President of Nigeria in 2019

The best Vice President for the Presidential nominee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) General Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd) should be an Igbo man who will succeed Buhari in 2019. Anything else will not receive my endorsement. As we can see that after President Goodluck Jonathan's tenure, he will return power back to the Hausas in 2019 and the Igbos have been cheated and fooled again by the ruling party since the days of defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN) in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

I will not endorse or support any party that will not guarantee that an Igbo man or woman will be President in 2019. And this is a wise decision for all Igbos. Igbos must stop being used as the political gambit of the Hausas, Yorubas and even political leaders of the Niger Delta as President Jonathan used them to win the 2011 presidential election. Igbos deserve more than getting appointed as honourable Ministers and DGs.

The following is from my article on "Igbos Cannot Produce the Next President of Nigeria in 2015".
The Igbos claim to be hard working and intelligent people, but they are not as smart as the Yorubas. Aggression is not power, but lack of self-control.
They need to study the political common sense of Senator Bola Tinubu who rose from being an ambitious state governor to the national leader of the Main Opposition. Tinubu does not boast of intellectual skills or even revolutionary bravery, but he is very smart in political leadership.
I have been watching him for over a decade now and I know him more than he knows me. Tinubu should write a book on his Political Common Sense. Nigerians and students of Political Science need to study Tinubu. He is even faring better than the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the greatest political leader of the Yorubas since Oduduwa. Tinubu is the smartest Yoruba political leader since Nigeria became an independent nation. His protege, Barrister Babatunde Raji Fashola, the present Governor of Lagos State needs to learn more from Tinubu's Political Common Sense. My reference to Tinubu is for the benefit of the Igbo political leaders who are more politically confused than the Hausa political leaders. But the Hausas can still produce the next President of Nigeria if the Senate President David Mark is not going to contest .
The political leaders of the Igbos need to put their house in order. I recommend that they should study Sun Tzu's "Art of War" and the Political Common Sense of Bola Tinubu and if they like, also read my book on Nigeria, In the House of Dogs which combines lessons from the Holy Bible, The Art of War and 48 Laws of Power to address the situation in Nigeria.
