Ohanaeze disclosed that “The eye of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has been drawn to the remarks by Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Spokesman of the Northern Elder’s Discussion board whereby he expressed fear concerning the place of the South-East in direction of Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Celebration for the 2023 presidential election. In keeping with Baba-Ahmed “we don’t know whether or not they’re in help of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Celebration or not. The nation can see what is going on now and if the South East fails to line up behind Obi, they need to not blame anyone” He charged the Igbo to “attain out to different Nigerians and inform them they’re supporting Obi not as a result of he’s an Igbo man however as a result of he’s the very best”.

The assertion averred that “The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide led by Ambassador Professor George Obiozor reassures the Northern Elders Discussion board and certainly the entire Nigeria that the South East of Nigeria or higher put, the Igbo are solidly behind our illustrious son, Mr. Peter Obi. There is no such thing as a gainsaying the distraction by the negligible minority elite who by assistance from social media have over-exaggerated their self-worth, authority, energy, and political relevance. Instructively, the Christian faith informs that in each twelve, there have to be a Judas, It is a assertion of reality, historical past, expertise, and a socio-political crucial. In different phrases, it’s somewhat inconceivable to count on all people to help Obi. What’s necessary is that the Obi-Datti motion has gained the help of over ninety % Igbo and continues to swell with time.”

It added that “Ohanaeze won’t be part of points with those that are against the collective Igbo aspiration with the hope that, as in each ideology, extra converts will key in when the logs of wooden of their eyes are cleared. The Ohanaeze help to Obi shouldn’t be due to his Igboness as rightly identified by Baba -Ahmed, what goes for Obi at the moment is the superior high quality service he rendered to his individuals as a governor; and naturally, the dispositional humility, character comeliness and mental acumen that outline his public conducts.” Happening Reminiscence lane, Ohanaeze recalled that “As a governor, Obi was busy setting requirements of fine governance for posterity, whereas another myopic, timid, and mundane governors have been busy with the unconscionable primitive acquisition of wealth to the detriment or impoverishment of the very plenty that voted them into workplace.”

The apex Igbo physique pledged that “On behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and certainly all of the Nigerian compatriots, we commend the Northern Elder’s Discussion board for stating that “we’ll give our help to the very best man who can heal the injuries within the land as a result of really, all people in Nigeria is marginalized proper now,” What has remained the curse of the third world is within the alternative we make at each event. Whereas our ugly previous has been outlined by selfishness, greed, injustice, ethnic and non secular sentiments, the enlightened Nigerian youths of at the moment are extra imaginative, proactive, artistic, rational, and cosmopolitan. The prevailing poverty and hardship don’t acknowledge the boundaries of ethnicity and faith. “Subsequently, Nigeria is at a essential juncture with a alternative between our attribute vicious circle on one hand and the virtuous circle annotated with wealth creation and sustainable nationwide growth on the opposite.”

Ohanaeze submitted that “Lastly, Professor Obiozor is not only an erudite scholar, he’s additionally a prophet. He lengthy predicted that any occasion that nominates its presidential candidate outdoors the South East of Nigeria will certainly have issues. Expectedly, the extra crises within the different political events, the extra enlarged the Obi-Datti coast will develop into. It’s price reiterating that the justice and fairness the Igbo search in Nigeria have discovered a providential expression in Obi. It is because, each Nigerian, large or small, younger or outdated, is aware of that it’s the flip of the South East to provide a president for Nigeria come 2023, going by the rotation and zoning ideas which were entrenched in Nigeria since 1999. And by all requirements, Obi is an efficient commodity that defies dangerous markets. Because it stands, Obi represents the physique and soul of the Igbo for the 2023 basic election. We hereby urge Nigerians to disregard any opposite opinion from the South East as the standard distraction and thorns that path the trail to victory.”
