The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has declared support for the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, for president come 2023.
It stated this in an issued press statement commending Nigerians, especially the youths on their recent efforts to end voters’ apathy and take back Nigeria in 2023.
The group however urged Igbo leadership to openly endorse the Obi’s Labour Party in 2023, as he is the newest political tsunami sweeping across the country.
The statement was signed by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro and made available to newsmen in Abakaliki.
The Ohanaeze also expressed its disappointment in the officials and leaders of the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), over alleged attempts to disenfranchise Nigerians especially Igbos in the ongoing voter registration exercise.
He then urged Ndigbo to storm all centres of the ongoing voter’s registration exercise and ensure that they obtain their voter’s cards before the closure of the exercise while calling on INEC to extend the Permanent Voters Registration (PVC) exercise till September 30th, 2022, in order to accommodate millions of eligible voters to participate in 2023 elections.
