“Though His Excellency, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, GCON was a great icon, a national father-figure and a stabilizing factor in Nigerian politics, I Chief James Onanefe Ibori cannot stop asking “what if”.

“Even those who betrayed the effort to make Ekwueme President may begin to hypocritically of course, bewail the fact that the Ekwueme or the Igboman or woman never ruled Nigeria.

“If only we had allowed Ekwueme to rule Nigeria, what example would he have set? Now, we will never know and Nigeria is the ultimate loser.

It will be important to recall that Ekwueme twice sought to become President of Nigeria in 1999 and 2003 but could not get the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
