Polls Result: Ohanaeze Congratulates Buhari by midolian(m): 4:48pm On Feb 28
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, on Thursday congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory in the Presidential election of February 23.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission on Wednesday, having polled 15,191,847 votes, winning in 19 states.


Buhari defeated 72 other candidates, including Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, who scored 11,255,978 votes and won 17 states and the FCT, to occupy the second position.



The Secretary-General of the group, Chief Uche Okwukwu, gave the congratulatory message while briefing newsmen in Enugu.


“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo heartily rejoices and congratulates President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, on his well-deserved victory at the Presidential polls on February 23.

“His victory as exposed by the majority of votes cast has clearly shown that the President has been on the right course in the last four years.

“Ndigbo are deeply happy that Mr President secured more votes in Igbo land than he got in 2015.

“We urge all Nigerians and the international community to accept the verdict as the election was adjudged free, credible, transparent and peaceful.

“Ohanaeze is calling on all not to heat up the polity through unguarded utterances and actions,’’ he said.

Okwukwu added that the leadership of the group would be meeting with President Buhari next week to present to him an official congratulatory message on his well-deserved victory at the poll.



He, however, said that the group would use the occasion to present to Buhari the charter of their demands for infrastructural uplift of the entire Igbo-speaking areas of the country.

“Part of our demands will be the completion of ongoing infrastructure works such as the 2nd Niger Bridge, modern railway, completion of ongoing Enugu-Onitsha and Enugu-Port Harcourt roads, fixing of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport among others,’’ he said.


NAN reports that Ohanaeze members are drawn from seven states, which include; Abia, Anambra, Delta, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo and Rivers States.

Lovely. That's the right thing to do. cool

They should also prevail on their subjects to get a grip and move on. The lies, hate and propaganda they've been spreading over the outcome of the election is appalling. They can't feel more bereaved than the people of Adamawa. They made the mistake with Jonathan, thus attracting needless anger to themselves even when the people of Niger Delta and Bayelsa in particular had moved on.

God bless us all.

Uche Okwukwu is a very foolish man. This is someone who ignored the wishes of Ohanaeze to endorse Atiku and went to endorse Buhari


Now over 80% of Igbos voted against Buhari and APC but Uche Okwukwu still says



“Ndigbo are deeply happy that Mr President secured more votes in Igbo land than he got in 2015"

How laughable

Just to make the correction that this is not Ohaneze ndigbo.

This is the Sec Gen that has since been suspended from Ohaneze.
