The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said that the former Governor of Lagos State and 2023 presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, has serious hatred for Ndigbo.
The Igbo group said he demonstrated his hatred for the region by shunning the entire South-East during his consultations with delegates ahead of the ruling party’s primary election.
The socio-cultural organisation stated this while condemning the reported attack on the people of South-East resident in Lagos.
According to Daily Post, several videos currently circulating on social media show several youths being attacked by thugs where they had gone to obtain their Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVCs, in which some Igbo youths sustained injuries in the process.
The group said Ndigbo should not be pushed beyond the walls as they have already been pushed to the walls, adding that the two major political parties in the country, the All Progressive Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, cannot deny the South-East presidential ticket and at the same time deny them the opportunity to exercise their franchise.
It called on the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the APC presidential candidate “to call their people to order.”
Meanwhile, the factional presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, Mr Jude Ezenwafor, has reportedly withdrawn from the contest.
The presidential candidate said in a letter being circulated online that his decision to withdraw is personal and appealed to his supporters to understand him.
This is coming after he had received ultimatum from Mazi Okwu Nnabuike led Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, to withdraw from the contest.
