Ohanaeze Backs Umahi On Defection, Says PDP Has Been Unkind To Ndigbo by blazesam(m): 4:46am On Nov 12, 2020
The pan-Igbo socio-cultural and political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has declared support for moves by the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, to dump the Peoples Democratic Party to join the All Progressives Congress.

Umahi reportedly told PDP leaders at a meeting, in Abuja, on Tuesday, that he was leaving the party because of its refusal to zone the 2023 presidential ticket to the South East.

Deputy National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze, Chief Chuks Ibegbu, described Umahi’s planned move as “legitimate.”

Ibegbu said this in a telephone interview with our correspondent, in Enugu, on Wednesday.

He said, PDP will be unkind not to zone the 2023 presidency to the South East that has suffered a lot for it.”

In a related development, Umahi’s planned move to join the APC is yet to be officially communicated to the party.

Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena, in response to enquiries by The PUNCH, on the issue on Wednesday, said, “Our doors are wide open to receive all Nigerians who meet the requirements laid down by the constitution to join our party.

“For now, there has been no official communication either from him (Umahi) or his people.”

Now the Ibos are growing some balls.

You are one of the major tribes, you can’t play second fiddle in PDP for eternity. Even if Nigeria will break up tomorrow, at least make a point by showing you can really compete in the murky waters of politics.

It is not PDP's fault. Ohanaeze sef sabi say most igbos have already decided to vote for Atiku once again in 2023. Igbo and PDP don sign blood covenant.

cool



Like they owe PDP or anybody any explanation.... Why are Ibo leaders like this?!

If PDP can't zone Presidency to SouthEast after 20 long years, then form alliance in other party and try your luck

Atleast APC would zone it to Only Southern Nigeria, meaning Umahi , Rochas Okorocha, Orji Uzor Kalu and other APC Ibos would contest the Presidential primaries with Only SouthSouth and Southwest, worst case scenario if Umahi losses in APC Presidential Election he gets a very strategic position
.

PDP wants to zone it to North again without even giving Ibo a fair chance to contest, to make matters worse the are picking a SouthSouth Vice

This is a right step on a right direction. Igbos are too big to be fooled.

Ndi-Igbo, the think-tank of this nation, has been subjected to the stink-tank in the nation.

If not oil, there is no reason whatsoever that would present the South-South man to cling to the golden seat at the Villa before that man from the East.

Igbos shaped the Nigeria we are enjoying all today, count it in all facets of life. But it seems as if Igbos are suffering from political marginalisation in a modern day Nigeria politics simply because of their loyalty to PDP.

Toeing Nnamdi Azikiwe path once again. Nothing learned nothing gained! Better to team up with other geopolitical zones who are inclined towards restructuring. The lure of the power at the centre appears to have the attention of Ndigbo. That should be a mistake!

Last last the plan of the North will work. Even if they zone presidency to the East it will still be in the hands of their puppet. So 8 years Igbo presidency will simply be a continuation of Arenwa dominion. No change.

At the top they care little about you except what works for them. But you will be on Nairaland supporting one of them or another at the detriment of the future of your children.

The spirit of the Endsars movement should not be alive on the street where people are prone to loose their lives. Well meaning Nigerians should be online campaigning against the system that perpetuates corruption, nepotism and bad governance. I was expecting to be rrafing comments that puts them on their feet. Something that tells them we dome with the old system and the players. Not age but system. Until we have a Nigerian that is fresh or has proven his capacity without a God father influence. We need to have a standard to use in deciding who to support in the next election. That's what we should be doing now not discussing the selfish moves of thieves

Cant we try

It shouldn't be in the news.
No need to shalaye.

In other news, has Pdp been in a political position nationally to appreciate the loyalty being demanded?

Or deputy governor position of Oyo state should be awarded to the east?

Okay, but APC will zone it to SE abi?

If the Igbos are serious about taking power, they should form a formidable region. Strong enough to command respect.

Plus if they don't become President, they should push for say V.P, S.P, Speaker etc. At the end of the day holding key positions would be more valuable than boasting of having the just president if the goal is to enjoy better dividends of governance for the Igbo and not some political chest thumbing. The Niger Deltans will tell you their story
