2023:Ohanaeze Begin Lobbying Of Specific Regions

With several arguments on why Nigeria’s presidency should be zoned to the southeast region, the apex Igbo socio-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, said it has begun moves to secure presidential tickets for Igbo candidates from the region. Ohanaeze Ndigbo said the leaders from the organisation will visit other zones across Nigeria to solicit support for the Igbo presidency in 2023.Speaking on the visits, the national publicity secretary for the group, Alex Ogbonnia, said Ohanaeze expects to start a visit to the other regions by January 21. He said through the visits, the Igbo group will persuade other ethnic nationalities to convince all political parties to field the Igbo as presidential candidates.

Ogbonnia said: “Ohanaeze Ndigbo will meet and top on the agenda is Igbo presidency and how to meet ethnic nationalities in Nigeria, to convince them that all the political parties should nominate the Igbo for president of Nigeria.”

“Secondly, assuming that it works that way that all political parties nominate the Igbo, then we have no other work again or role to play because whoever will emerge finally will be an Igbo.”

The group had said that some highly placed politicians in Nigeria are plotting to frustrate the quest for the Igbo presidency. The group said it would do all within its powers to ensure that an Igbo person is elected the president of the country. The group also urged the Igbo people to prepare for what it described as “the horrible and shocking things” that would soon begin to unfold.
