‘Don’t Insult The Intelligence Of Igbos,Give Us 2023 Presidential Ticket Or Forget Our Votes’- Ohanaeze To PDP

‘Don’t Insult The Intelligence Of Igbos,Give Us 2023 Presidential Ticket Or Forget Our Votes’- Ohanaeze To PDP

The Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council(OYC), worldwide says the Igbo nation is not prepared to wait on the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) till 2031 for the Party’s Presidential ticket.

President General of the OYC,Okechukwu Isiguzoro in a statement said the PDP should forget about votes from the Igbos in the next elections if the Party does not give an Igbo man its Presidential ticket in 2023.

The statement read:
“The OYC is irrevocably committed to the advancement of the Igbo nation. In the struggle to protect, promote and prosper the life and livelihood of the average Igbo man, the council will speak with courage and act with wisdom.”

The OYC is committed to the idea that the Igbo man would thrive best in a restructured Federal Republic of Nigeria. What the Igbo man seeks is not a helping hand. The Igbo man demands a level playing field.”

“The Igbo man in Ihiala or Zungeru or Potiskum has invested his faith in Nigeria. He wants from Nigeria the sense of belonging of a first son—a shared sense of belonging with the Fulani and the Yoruba. He wants a platform for the maximisation of his God-given potential.”

“While the OYC is pushing fiercely for devolution of power to the regions and resource control, the council will keep its eyes on 2023. It is not because an Igbo Presidency will solve all that bedevils the Igbo. But an Igbo Presidency will assuage and comfort, will offer that sense of belonging, and will pursue devolution of powers and industrialisation.”

While watching the events leading up to 2023, the OYC has observed some troubling developments.”

“Igbos have voted massively for the PDP since 1999 but it appears that the PDP regards the Igbos as cows that must be milked and used to death. The PDP is making subterranean diabolical plans to retain power in the North in 2023.”

“OYC wishes to make it abundantly clear:The PDP must not insult the intelligence of the Igbo.”

“If the PDP thinks the Igbo will wait till 2031 before it gets a chance at its Presidential ticket , then the PDP isn’t just treacherous, it is delusional. Perhaps the PDP doesn’t need Igbo votes.”

Political pundits are however of the opinion that former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who lost the 2019 President poll to President Muhammaudu Buhari might want to give it another shot.

They say he still has the structure and financial war chest to contest the elections even as other contestants in the North, including serving Governors could throw their hats into the ring.

It remains to be seen if the Party would acceed to the demands of the pan Igbo group and indeed,other vocal voices from the Igbo nation,especially as the Igbos have always voted for the PDP since the dawn of the current democratic dispensation in 1999.
