2023: If Igbos Come To Me To Be President, I Will Welcome The Idea - Pat Utomi

2023: If Igbos Come To Me To Be President, I Will Welcome The Idea - Pat Utomi (Updated: 8 months ago)


Political economy and management expert, Pat Utomi, has stated that if Igbos ask him to run for the 2023 Presidential elections, he would welcome the idea.

He, however, stressed that he was not position drunk, stressing that ‘office and power’ have very little attraction to him.


In an interview on Arise TV on Saturday, Utomi was asked if he would consider running for the 2023 polls as an Igbo candidate.

Responding, he said, “Igbo Candidacy? If people come to me and say, ‘Look! We have looked at your background. We have looked at your whole life of service and we think you are the candidate that the Igbo nation needs to offer to Nigeria, I would have no problem with that. But, am I driven by the very fact of position?

“Look, there are people who have been President in Nigeria, who if you give me their place in history; I would rather never have held any office in Nigeria than be what history would remember them as. So, the fact of office and power has very little attraction to me as a person but service to transform the lives of people matter to me.

“It is about the people. Honestly, it is not about people who would hire crowds to come and say, ‘These people have come to ask me to run.’ No. I have always seen service about people looking around them. Almost everything I have done in my life is to literally see it as a duty.”
