JUST IN: Ohanaeze Sends APC Important Message Ahead Of Presidential Primaries


The Ohanaeze Youth Council has issued a warning to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) not to play jamboree with the unity of Nigeria.


Leakblast.com reports that the group’s national president, Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, made the statement in the aftermath of the endorsement of Ahmad Lawan as the consensus presidential candidate of the APC in the 2023 presidential election.

Igboayaka stated that, “As President Muhammadu Buhari who is from the North is finishing his tenure, a succeeding president must come from the southern Nigeria.”

Igboayaka particularly made a case for the South East to produce the party’s presidential candidate, arguing that ‘the southeast zone has not produced a president for over 57 years’ of the country’s existence.

“Sen Lawan’s presidency championed by some of the misguided South-East politicians is clearly a national disaster. Those on this dangerous and lonely road to cede president to any zone that’s not South East should have a rethink.”

He warned that the Igbo have no business being in Nigeria’s super-structure if South East is denied presidency in 2023.

According to him, “If the APC presidential ticket is given to any other zone apart from South East, Ndigbo have no business to remain in a country that’s characterized with injustice, marginalization and hate against South easterners.

“Those who want to push South East out of Nigeria should do it fast. Those who want to accommodate South East to still be part of Nigeria should cede APC’s presidential ticket to South East.

“We have counted PDP as the worst political enemy of Ndigbo, and Igbo youths have vowed to teach the party a lesson. If APC makes a similar mistake by denying South East its presidential ticket, we shall teach them a historical lesson as well.”

He appealed to presidential aspirants from South West and South South to support Dr Ogbonnaya Onu.
