As the campaign for the 2023 Igbo Presidency keep gathering momentum, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has unveiled list of Political Heavyweights they will be meeting ahead of the election.
The group in a statement signed by Comrade Obinna Achionye, Deputy President General Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, laud Nigerians irrespective of tribe and religion who had acknowledged for Equity, Justice and Fairness to reign, for the proper integration and foster Unity and maintain healthy democracy and respect the gentleman agreement on rotational Presidency.
OYC also noted that South East should be encouraged to adopt the Yoruba Model of 1999, and Northern Model of 2019 where Major political parties in 1999 adopted all Yorubas Candidates, and in 2019 where PDP and APC featured all Northern Presidential Candidates, what’s good for the Goose is also good for the Gander.
The statement further reads… “a Nigerian President of Igbo stock is on the right track, and We had activated Unity of purpose among the ranks and files, stakeholders of Igbos,even we acknowledged there might be pockets of opposition but that’s the beauty of democracy.
“The 2023 National Committee on Igbo presidency project,a New political organ and platform that will independently drive the 2023 Igbo Presidency project which is an assemblage of tested sons and daughters with proven track record of accomplishment in their various areas of expertise and human endeavour, who had devoutly placed the collective bargain and aspirations of Igbos ahead of other interests, and more importantly, a generation who never tasted the Biafra Civil War, who are determined through moral persuasion and well articulated Master plan designed by late Chuba Okadigbo of blessed memory, as a guiding principles and Compass to methodologically and systematically build bridges across the country and form alliances with all, and consciously ensure the enemies within are suppressed with truth and reconciliatory measures to prevent the repeat of Jos Convention PDP 98, where few Igbo leaders sold out against Dr Alex Ekwueme, this committee will be under Natural oath of allegiance to the great Igbo deity ,never to betray this Igbo Presidency project whose time had come, there’ll be effort to address Biafra agitators to mellow down and allow God’s will be done.
“After due Consultations with all the 69 OYC affiliated groups, students Union leaders, opinion and Community based leaders, respected and Eruduite Statesmen, Igbo Traditional Rulers, Religious leaders, Women leaders and importantly our politicians, it’s collectively resolved that Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro should head the 27 Man-2023 National Committee on Igbo presidency project, with a clear mandate to reach out all and Sundry especially those detractors who are yet to see why their Zones shouldn’t hold on to power beyond 2023, there’s nothing amiss like in our Muti-party democracy like us engaging Your opponents through fruitful discussions, dialogue and moral persuasive speech aimed at Cross fertilizing ideas on Igbo presidency project, on that note ACF Scribe Sani, Junaid Muhammed, Anglo Abdullahi, FFK, Coalition of Northern Groups and other Critics, as well as those who had openly declared support for the Igbo Presidency struggle are top of the list to be Consulted, We insists everyone will be Consulted to gain confidence of all Nigerians before the end of 2021.
“Igbo Youths wishes to State categorically that the current 2023 Igbo Presidency National committee is open to all Nigerians to join not necessarily limited to Igbo folks, it’s subject to ratification and review periodically to fine turn with the realities on the ground and consideration to the fact there will be attempt to blackmail or cajole or derail this people’s movement, but We are fully aware of the fact that some Elders who are advised to play advisory role may not be comfortable with the new role,but we assured them only their blessings are required until 2023 Presidential elections draws nearer, where they’ll openly play prominent roles.
This is a great strategic thinking, kudos Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro….you are all eyes
You are all idiots of the highest order. You are an igbo but you cannot say I personally support you and your useless ohaneze ndi ochi for this selfisish motions. We need Biafra. No more, No less.
