Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze has warned Nigerians against voting for a Northerner and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
Ohanaeze warned that Atiku would betray PDP governors over his promise of ruling Nigeria for a single term.
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, cautioned that Atiku’s presidency would be full of deception and falsehood.
In a statement he signed, Isiguzoro described Atiku as an unpredictable individual who never keeps to an agreement.
According to Isiguzoro: “Ndigbo and Nigerians understand the implications of the transition of power from President Buhari to another Northerner in 2023, particularly to Atiku Abubakar, who is seen as a precarious and unpredictable individual, who never keeps to an agreement.
“This is the height of hypocrisy and nepotism for the successor of President Buhari to be another Northerner, therefore making it easier for the first time for the North to hold Power for uninterrupted 16 years against the South after many wasteful years of the North in military regimes.
Ohaneze alleged that ”Atiku’s presidency will be full of deception and falsehood as he forbade to endorse an agreement with Southern PDP Governors for a single term pact, with the recent refusal of the Northern Caucus of PDP to relinquish the National Chairman of the Party while holding the Presidential candidate and the recent resignation of BoT Chairman Walid, a political maneuver and prank to spite Ndigbo.”
“Ndigbo will consider the adoption of a Southerner for 2023 as the person who will receive Igbo votes''.
