|2019: Atiku Friends Endorsed Him Not We, Ohanaeze Says by Ebullience(m): 12:37pm On Jan 10|
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has denied endorsing Alhaji Atiku Abubarka, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 presidential election.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the organisation, Mr Chuks Ibegbu disclosed this on Thursday in Enugu at a media briefing to mark the second anniversary of the current executive of the organisation.
Ibegbu said that the clarification became necessary following misconceptions on the event of Nov. 14, 2018 where some Igbo leaders endorsed the candidacy of Atiku Abubakar for presidency.
It would be recalled that some Igbo leaders had, during a meeting in Enugu, attended by Atiku and the national leaders of the PDP including the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, endorsed Atiku.
Ibegbu, however, clarified that the said endorsement was done by the friends of Atiku, adding that the organisation had not endorsed any particular candidate.
The deputy national publicity secretary said that the organisation needed to be circumspect, “as our children are in all the political parties.’
“It is erroneous to say that we endorsed Atiku. Ohanaeze Ndigbo did not endorse anybody. That meeting at Nike Lake Resort was organised by friends of Atiku.
“However, due to our peculiar circumstance in the country, we will identify with candidates that will restructure Nigeria if voted into power,” he said.
He said that the organisation would soon meet to take a holistic position on the 2019 general elections.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo has been canvassing for our people to identify with candidates that will restructure Nigeria.
“We still stand on that and in the next few days we shall meet to take a holistic position on the elections,” he said.
Ibegbu noted that within the two years in office of the Chief John Nwodo led Ohanaeze Ndigbo, “we have given our modest contribution by re-jigging Igbo leadership and issues concerning our people”.
He said that the current leadership of the organisation had built synergy with its affiliate groups with a view to achieving unity in the area.
He said that the dexterity and leadership acumen of Nwodo had positively affected the relationship between the organisation and other ethnic socio-cultural associations in the country.
“This has earned the president general an award as ‘Bridge Builder of the Nation’, which will be presented to him on Jan. 17 by Daily Independent Newspapers,” Ibegbu said.

ATHIEFKWU IS nothing but a loser, the hand writing is EVERYWHERE.
Hence his clinging to the straw.
No wonder Obi is keeping his money.
Wise igbo man.
Etinosa1234:Look at this one o!
Who ask you to vote for Buhari in the first place?
We love Buhari personally and that is that!
NEVER get it twisted please.
We aren't here to campaign.
Your kids will ask you in the future what you did with your youth, not us.
Give your vote to a thief, that is your business.
That was just so nauseating!
Are you threatening us with your vote or what exactly?

Afamed:In fact, most of the Atiku support groups are still waiting patiently and passionately to eat Atiku's campaign money with the same wanton disregard and reckless abandon with which Atiku ate public funds.
Many have sworn that by the time the election is over, Atiku would only be left with the rightful wealth due to a retired civil servant and former Vice-President who eagerly awaits the alert of his monthly pension.

Atiku has a lot of work to do though he is not a panacea to Nigeria's problem. Currently, the oldies have little to nothing to offer and they should be allowed to hide. However, the insane ones are more than the sane ones and would rather vote these pensioners. Nigeria needs to restructure and dissolve this current system for any iota of growth.....

Igbos lack political sense, walahi
You'll think their loud mouths and success at trading would translate to political sense. Unfortunately, it's not.
I hate this evil government and want it replaced but with the actions of IPOB and Ohaneze lately, the Igbos can't be relied on to drive this bloodthirsty government out of power.
No wonder they are always holding the short end of the stick in all the political regimes in Nigeria.

If u can ans these questions...I will happily vote Buhari
Buhari never fought corruption, instead he came to power to get revenge on his so called enemies
If I am wrong let him prove it by telling us who owns the billions found in ikoyi?
If buhari is fighting corruption Let buhari jail Governor Gaduje!
Let buhari jail the pension thief Maina!
Let buhari allow efcc investigate Amaechi for looting rivers state when he was governor!
Let buhari allow efcc investigate the money laundering going in Lagos State via Alphabeta LLC
Let buhari tell us how people in the presidency used his family name to purchase 9mobile and Keystone bank
Let buhari tell us where his wife Aisha got N25 billion that her aide stole , isn't that Nigeria's money that can be used to build schools, roads , hospitals and pay salaries?
Let buhari allow efcc investigate Akpabio for looting Akwa ibom when he was the governor
Let buhari allow efcc investigate NNPC for granting contracts worth $25 billion without due process
If buhari is trully fighting corruption let him order NNPC to open their books for external auditing
If buhari is fighting corruption let him allow efcc question his inlaw Abbu kyari who was fingered in money laundering of over N20 billion two months ago
if buhari is fighting corruption let him explain how come despite increasing fuel price to N145 he claimed he was stopping subsidy payments yet he has paid over N3 trillion in just three years , when pdp didn't pay that amount in 16 years without increasing fuel.price so what is going on?
If buhari is fighting corruption let him carry out a free and open national census let us see how many people actually live in Nigeria and compare that against his subsidy payments
If buhari is fighting corruption let him explain how come he claimed he has boosted agriculture yet United Nations and world Bank said by next year Nigeria will be the world's largest importer of rice? So where are all the imaginary rice farmers who he said he empowered? Or is Nigeria now exporting rice and importing double the amount we export?
If buhari is truly fighting corruption why is he not respected for his anti corruption fight internationally? It's obvious the international community know better.
If he is doing well why had no international government declared support for his re-election like how they did in 2015? Not one government has come out to say "Nigeria will be better off if buhari continues as president" just like they were doing back in 2015 when even the American president declared support for him, same with the British PM or the German Chancellor
If buhari is fighting corruption why did he put his daughter as a board member of NNPC ? Why?
No wonder he can't order NNPC to open their books
If buhari is fighting corruption why is he not addressing the expenses of his $1 billion loan to fight book Haram? How was the money spent ? Yet we are seeing videos everyday of our soldiers crying or not having weapons!
If buhari is fighting corruption why didn't he order an investigation into Magu the efcc chairman who had been fingered by so many sources as being a conduit pipe of money laundering for his inlaw Kyari?
Why did DSS report state clearly that Magu is unfit to be the efcc chairman due to failing several integrity tests yet buhari went on to endorse him?
If buhari is fighting corruption why did he not allow efcc investigate the IG on money laundering charges ?
If buhari is not corrupt why create a yearly budget for health care and yet he goes abroad for all medical issues meaning the minister of health is incompetent.. so where does our yearly health budget go?
If buhari is not corrupt why float the naira against the dollar when you know you don't have a thriving local industry to booster your currency? So who is benefiting from this floating of the naira against the dollar ? The parallel market operators? Who runs this dollar dollar market in Nigeria?
You know the answer to that questio
