Whereas, the Igbo is the largest ethnic group in Nigeria, numbering over 40 million by conservative estimates;

and

Whereas, the Igbo can be found in virtually every local government area in Nigeria; and

Whereas, the incumbent President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has not yet declared an interest in seeking his party’s nomination for President and has not declared an interest in presenting himself for reelection as President; and

Whereas, the Igbo has thousands of women and men who can serve  Nigeria as President and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces; and

Whereas, all parties in Nigeria have Igbo members who can serve as President; and

Whereas; the primary goal of the World Igbo Congress is to advocate for the collective advancement and interests of Ndigbo;

Let it be therefore resolved by the World Igbo Congress on this 9th day of the month of September, 2014, as follows:

We call on each political party in Nigeria to give serious consideration to nominating an Igbo as its presidential candidate for the 2015 election to address decades of deliberate  and systematic punitive exclusion of Ndigbo in presidential politics;

We will consider for support and endorsement parties that give serious consideration to and support for an Igbo nominee for President;

Consistent with the spirit of the 2010 Mississippi Accord between the World Igbo Congress and the Ijaw National Congress, we call for collective support for a President of our shared heritage;

We commend the United Progressive Party (UPP) for deciding to zone its presidential ticket to the South East of Nigeria.
