Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation have declared their full support for Labour Party’s Peter Obi ahead of the coming elections.
The spokesperson of the organisation Chiedozie Ogbonnia revealed that other regional socio-political groups like the Middle Belt Forum Afenifere also endorsed the former Anambra state governor.
Ohanaeze stressed that their reason for putting their weight behind Obi is that he has the expertise to rescue Nigeria from its current problems and urged Nigerians to recognise the LP presidential candidate.
The group said: “In unison, all acknowledged that Obi is the best thing God has done for Nigeria in this century; a game changer, soldier of morals, democracy archetype, the popular sentiment of Nigerian youths, an abundance philosopher, prudent resource manager, ethnic barrier-breaker and a quintessential audacious Igbo icon.
“Is it sensible to turn the barrel of the gun inwards? And is it sensible for any noble Igbo son and daughter to embark on self-destruction such as the sit-at-home syndrome, destruction of public utilities, among others.”
