Apex socio-cultural Organisation of Igbo people, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has endorsed Mr Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour party (LP) for the 2023 Presidency.
By Charles Onyekwere
The body said that after due consultations, Obi is better than Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and Bola Tinubu, Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was contained in a statement signed and made available to The Trumpet by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isigozoro in Abakaliki on Sunday.
According to the statement, Obi if given the mandate, will create a new Nigeria while describing the APC-led federal government as a disaster to all Nigerians.
The statement reads, “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has described the APC-led Federal Government as a disaster and tragedy to Nigerians. With the collapse in security, Education, and the Economy in shambles, while the PDP crisis deepens, Nigeria has only one option for greatness, and obedient movement is an electoral upheaval and revolutionary dogma sweeping against deviant politicians and epileptic administration.
“APC in 2015 convinced Nigerians and took over power from PDP on the grounds to clean up corruption and insecurity instituted by PDP’s misrule, but with APC’s blunder in governance in 7 years, Nigerians believe that Peter Obi is credible and decent to recreate the battered and shabby image of Nigeria which was destroyed by APC and PDP in our 23 years of democracy in Nigeria “.
“The search for a new Nigeria has begun with Nigerians in Diaspora trying to participate in the electoral process by providing financial stability for LP to have the political war chest to compete favourably with the APC and PDP Presidential candidates in 2023 elections.
“APC and PDP now are nervous and jittery over the planned Diaspora funds for the LP Presidential candidate by Nigerians in Diaspora and this would mark the end of the old political order which Tinubu and Atiku represent and the creation of a new Nigerian personality where competency in governance and accountability will be the new order of the day.

“Ndigbo chides those who are interested to block the diaspora funds for LP, as they are best described as predators and vampires that have been feeding on Nigeria’s cadaver since 1999.”
The statement noted that the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s records of accomplishments in the private sector and government show that he is more proficient, energetic, competent and incorruptible than Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.
Continuing, the statement added that Obi is not an Igbo agenda but a new Nigerian movement which is sweeping changes across the country, saying that Ndigbo is only surprised that the APC and PDP Presidential candidates are striving to use everything at their disposal to rundown Peter Obi as the campaign starts in September.
“Contrary to their expectations, Peter Obi is only a channel and alternative for Nigerians to retaliate against the wickedness and sins of APC and PDP in 2023, we expect to see how Atiku and Tinubu will fight against the rebellion that awaits them by the end of 2022 when campaigns hot up and it’s clear that Nigerians are in dire need of Peter Obi.
The organisation urged Atiku and Tinubu to voluntarily quit their presidential ambitions or face a disgraceful defeat in the 2023 presidential elections, especially as Nigerians considered to be knowledgeable are willing to explore the new electoral guidelines to save Nigeria from the old and antiquated leaders of the old order and usher in a new Nigeria.
