Ohanaeze Youth Council, (OYC) on Friday cautioned the All Progressive Congress, APC and People’s Democratic Party, PDP against denying the Southeast geopolitical zone presidential tickets, warning that there will be a total lockdown in Igbo land on 25th February 2023 which is the day of the Presidential and National Assembly elections if the zone is denied a ticket.
It made this known in a communique sent to newsmen and signed by its National President, Igboayaka O Igboayaka and Comrade Ifeanyi Nweke National Ag. Secretary-General.
The group said, ”there will be no access road to distribute electoral materials in any polling unit in Igbo land. If the powers that be in Nigeria can’t give the Southeast presidency that which is duly our turn to rule the country like other extractions of the country have been given fair chances, then Igbos will peacefully have no other option than to leave this union called Nigeria.
“We want to use this medium to advise Ndigbo living in the Northern parts of Nigeria to immediately start taking their security very serious if APC and PDP deny Southeast presidential aspirants and make adequate arrangements for their return back home.
“The world should bear in mind that this orchestrated conspiracy against Southeast is overdue, we cannot take it any longer as the struggle for the emancipation of our people starts now.
