The Chidi-Ibeh led Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has urged delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) and All Progressives Congress, (APC) to jettison any financial inducement that may be presented to them and vote for Ndigbo during the forthcoming party primaries.
The Igbo group insists that only a Nigerian President from the seven Igbo speaking states including Anioma ( in Delta,) and Ikwerre ( in Rivers) will halt the disintegration threats to Nigeria’s corporate existence and unity beyond 2023.
Ohaneze made the disclosure in a release issued by the Secretary-General of the group, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro in Abakaliki.
The group maintained that the consequence of another northern presidency after President Buhari in 2023 will be Nigeria’s doom and a reinforcement for the secessionist campaign for Biafra restoration.
“We ought to have learned lessons from the use of Boko Haram as a political spear for seizing power in 2015 and the aftermath consequences of President Buhari’s failure to end Boko Haram and Bandits terrorism in the North”.
“APC and PDP national deletes should jettison money politics and put Nigeria’s unity first by voting for Rt Hon. Chibuike Amaechi ( Ikwerre, Rivers) and Gov David Umahi(southeast) in APC and Gov Nyesom Wike ( Ikwerre Rivers) and Peter Obi (southeast) in PDP. Never in the history of our country has a particular region produced a Presidential candidate and National Chairman at the same time. It will be absolute insanity for PDP National Chairman, Dr. Ayu and APC Sen. Adamu to plot for Northern Presidential candidates, as it will spell doom for Nigeria and there will be elections boycott in the Southeast.
”This is the last deciding chance to preserve and defend Nigeria’s unity and peace. APC and PDP national delegates should place patriotism above nepotism, and save democracy. We acknowledge the Afenifere’s and Niger Delta’s support for the 2023 Igbo Presidency. As for those who are inquisitive to scuttle the Igbo agenda for 2023 they will reap anarchy, particularly the Igbo paid agents. We have not forgotten those Igbo saboteurs that betrayed Dr. Alex Ekwueme in Jos 1998 PDP convention. If the scenario plays out where northerners emerge as PDP and APC Presidential candidates, Igbo will boycott the 2023 elections.
