Igbo Presidency: Decamp to APC NOW! Ohaneze Ndigbo Urges South-East Governors
As struggle for Igbo Presidency heightens, an Igbo Socio-cultural organization, Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council has called on all South-Eastern Governors to dump their current political parties and join the All Progressive Congress, APC.
The group made this call on Monday in a statement jointly signed by its President general, Okechukwu Isiguzori and Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike and made available to Newsmen.
According to them, there are no political benefits for the South East zone to remain in a political party that has no respect and value for the Igbos except milking their votes during elections through deceitful mediums and fake promises.
In the statement, the group noted that if southeast governors join the APC, it will pave for Igbo Presidency come 2023.
The body also said the development would serve as sanctions for the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to reverse their decision for an open presidential contest to zoning formula, as enshrined in its constitution.
The statement Reads in Part:
“Historically, Igbos had never remained in the opposition party since 1960. Igbos deserves better deals, and only through active roles in the mainstream political party will there be an increase in dividends of democracy and projects in the Southeast zone.
“The continuous exclusion of the South-East zone from the federal government’s crucial political appointments and landmark projects are attributed to Igbo’s absence in mainstream governance.
“Igbo youths want these unpleasant situations to end, and OYC urges South-East governors to embrace APC and decamp without further delay”.
