Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, the Igbo socio-cultural organization has declared support for the five governors (5-G) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over their call for a Southerner to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
This was contained in a statement on Friday by the organization’s Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro.
The statement read;
Ohanaeze N’digbo Worldwide has called on Nigerians to accept the choice of G5 Governors in their bid to present a unifier and southerner.
In the choice of the next president of Nigeria and President Buhari’s successor by May 2023, N’digbo has agreed that with the presence of three of our own in the G5 Governors and integrity group, we have the implicit confidence that Governor Wike and others who are seen by Nigerians as the heroes of democracy and are saddled with the responsibility of presenting a preferred presidential candidate whose competence and capabilities are verifiable and dispositions are acceptable across the country.
The manipulation of a few politicians will never stand against the interests of the majority of Nigerians, and Nigerians are ready for the G5 group and are waiting patiently for the G5 London resolutions.
