    Ohanaeze Sends Message To Buhari Ahead Of APC Presidential Primaries


    Jun 2, 2022

    The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the All Progressives Congress (APC) produce a Presidential candidate from the South East.

    Naija News reports that Ohanaeze said the choice of a Presidential flagbearer from the Southeast is the best vaccine to heal and promote national unity.

    Ohanaeze added that the presidential aspirants from the region have the energy, and experience which can engender hope, enforce security and create widespread prosperity if chosen as the APC flagbearer.

    The group said that the South East will reject any Northern presidential candidate elected at the ruling party’s presidential primary election scheduled for June 6th and 7th.

    Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, made this known in a statement issued on Thursday.

    The apex social-cultural group expressed optimism that the President will choose an APC presidential aspirant of Igbo extraction as his successor.

    However, the group warned that APC would lose the 2023 presidential election if another northern aspirant emerges as the flagbearer of the party.

    He said, “We have seen the second Niger Bridge which is 90 per cent near completion and we are very grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari for that but we the Igbo nation will forever remain indebted to Mr. President if he endorses a southerner from Igbo block to succeed him in 2023 in office.

    “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, therefore, appeals to the APC and the leader of the ruling party, President Muhammadu Buhari to choose peace, unity, and harmony above all other primordial considerations as the choice of an Igbo from southeast or Ikwerre in Rivers State, that is the best vaccine to heal and unify Nigeria.

    “But the imposition of another northern presidency in 2023 as done by PDP will not be welcome not only by the Igbos but 70 percent of other Nigerians including the North.

    “So, an Igbo presidential candidate under APC would douse the rising secessionist campaign of the Indigenous People of Biafra as nothing is more important than unifying the country with an Igbo as Buhari’s successor.”

    Some of the aspirants from the South East include former Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; former Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu; former Senate President, Ken Nnamani; Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, and a former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha.
