2023: Peter Obi Represents Body, Soul Of Igbo – Ohanaeze by OddsDoc(f): 9:58pm On Nov 23
The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has said the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi represents the body and soul of the Igbo people in the 2023 general elections.

Ohanaeze also called on Nigerian people to disregard any opposing view from the South East, describing such “as the usual distraction and thorns that trail the path to victory.”

This was made known in a press statement entitled ‘Obi represents the body and soul of Ndigbo’ signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Dr Alex Ogbonnia on Wednesday.

Ohanaeze said the declaration was pertinent as the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) spokesman, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed asked whether the Igbo group is supporting Obi as the presidential election is three months away.

The statement quoted Baba-Ahmed as saying “We don’t know whether they are in support of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party or not. The nation can see what is happening now and if the South East fails to line up behind Obi, they should not blame anybody.”

Reacting to this, the statement clearly said Obi solidly has the backing of Ohanaeze and the entire Igbo people describing him as “our illustrious son.”

“And by all standards, Obi is a good commodity that defies bad market. As it stands, Obi represents the body and soul of the Igbo for the 2023 general election,” Ohanaeze said.

It asserted that the contrary voice from the Igbo people is likened to that of Judas, Jesus Christ’s betrayer in the Bible, Christian’s Holy Book.

It read partly, “The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide led by Ambassador Professor George Obiozor reassures the Northern Elders Forum and indeed the whole Nigeria that the South East of Nigeria or better put, the Igbo are solidly behind our illustrious son, Mr Peter Obi.

“There is no gainsaying the distraction by the negligible minority-elite who by the aid of social media have over-exaggerated their self-worth, authority, power and political relevance. Instructively, the Christian religion informs that in every twelve, there must be a Judas.

“This is a statement of fact, history, experience and a socio-political imperative. In other words, it is rather inconceivable to expect everybody to support Obi. What is important is that the Obi-Datti movement has gained the support of over ninety per cent Igbo and continues to swell with time.”

The group stated, “Ohanaeze will not join issues with those who are opposed to the collective Igbo aspiration with the hope that, as in every ideology, more converts will key in when the logs of wood in their eyes are cleared.

“The Ohanaeze support to Obi is not because of his Igboness as rightly pointed out by Baba -Ahmed, what goes for Obi today is the awesome quality service he rendered to his people as a governor; and of course, the dispositional humility, character comeliness and intellectual acumen that define his public conducts.

“As a governor, Obi was busy setting standards of good governance for posterity, while some other myopic, timid and mundane governors were busy with the unconscionable primitive acquisition of wealth to the detriment or impoverishment of the very masses that voted them into office.

“On behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and indeed all the Nigerian compatriots, we commend the Northern Elder’s Forum for stating that “we will give our support to the best man who can heal the wounds in the land because actually, everybody in Nigeria is marginalized right now.”

“What has remained the curse of the third world is in the choice we make at every occasion. While our ugly past has been defined by selfishness, greed, injustice, ethnic and religious sentiments, the enlightened Nigerian youths of today are more imaginative, proactive, creative, rational and cosmopolitan.

“The prevailing poverty and hardship do not recognize the boundaries of ethnicity and religion. Therefore, Nigeria is at a critical juncture with a choice between our characteristic vicious circle on one hand and the virtuous circle annotated with wealth creation and sustainable national development on the other.

“Finally, Professor Obiozor is not just an erudite scholar, he is also a prophet. He long predicted that any party that nominates its presidential candidate outside the South East of Nigeria will surely have problems.

“Expectedly, the more the crises in the other political parties, the more enlarged the Obi-Datti coast will become. It is worth reiterating that the justice and equity the Igbo seek in Nigeria have found a providential expression in Obi.

“This is because, every Nigerian, big or small, young or old, knows that it is the turn of the South East to produce a president for Nigeria come 2023, going by the rotation and zoning principles that have been entrenched in Nigeria since 1999.

“We hereby urge Nigerians to ignore any contrary opinion from the South East as the usual distraction and thorns that trail the path to victory.”

Re: 2023: Peter Obi Represents Body, Soul Of Igbo – Ohanaeze by Guyman01: 5:15am On Nov 24
I listened to Pay Ayo Adebanjo and realised that whenever 'North' talks about population advantage it should no longer be misconstrued with the old monolithic Arewa North which no longer exists with the formation of various ethnic nationality groups in the North, it's all about the vocal Fulanis who constitute only 6% of the population taking advantage of Hausa (27%) mass illiteracy imposed and maintained through the almajiri system by Fulani Islamic clerics and Emirs with support from its political elite.

The South should aggressively work on enlightening more Hausas by encouraging education and empowerment amongst the Hausa population and free them from mental slavery to the Fulanis.

The other Minority tribes in the north that have witnessed severe brutality meted out to them by foreign invading Fulanis can't be used anymore like in the days of Sardauna who ran an all inclusive northern Arewa government whose ideology has now been dealt a fatal blow by Buhari's nepotism in the past 7 years which favoured his tribe and his open noncharlant attitude towards the mass killings across the country by his kinsmen.

Hausa/Fulani is not a tribe in Nigeria, it's a political gimmick of the Fulani politicians to keep taking advantage of Hausa population in a pseudo one sided joint venture.
How come you don't hear Yoruba/Ijaw or Itsekiri/Gbagyi or Igbo/Tiv as tribes?

The Hausas should be made to realise that they have been used as pawns by the Fulanis in the Nigerian political chess game to gain political advantage in Nigeria and it's my hope that soon the Bahaushe will realise what they have

Peter Obi is embodiment of a true role model for a leader. It goes beyond being Igbo. It is what any leader anywhere must strive to be.

Integrity - Follows the rules he expects everyone else to follow ✓
Respect - Understands that everyone deserves respect✓
Honesty - His life is an open book✓
Accountability - owns his actions and their outcomes✓
Hardworking - willing to walk the walk✓
Humility - puts the interests of people before his own✓
Determination - pure desire to reach goals✓
Generosity - Selfless with his personal resources✓
Empathy - Identifies with the people✓
Authority - Able to challenge the status quo✓

Peter Obi makes his ambition not about himself but about the people. He tells the people they can be better; challenges the people to be better. See how people are motivating themselves and using their resources to go the extra mile to vote in the best choice they can, despite the harrowing experience these past years.

He is by far, the best option in 2023 to create a better Nigeria for the next generation.

Meanwhile, since I unveiled HilcomTech to be an alternate account of the well known tribalist, haslaw, I don't think anything has been done, despite the many rules on Nairaland against that.

Has anyone noticed that the dead meat griller has stopped calling out PDP the way he used to


Has anyone noticed that he has stopped saying "Never again would we allow PDP to near our vault again"

So does it mean PDP has changed? And made him start attacking ObiDatti's campaign


Or is it out of sheer hatred against one tribe?

If Igbos are to lead this country, I think they need to learn to dialogue with other tribes and stop burning bridges. You can't bully or coerce people to support your candidate, especially since most people are quite illogical and rather emotional.

With that being said, I think Obi is the better candidate compared to the rest.

Yeah, better; "the BETTER candidate compared to the rest," but everyone knows that the BEST candidate is Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, The Jagaban. He is the Man of the Match and the man to beat! (Next time, choose your words with expertise, boy.)

You may continue to heap financially induced praises on the demented Peter Obi because that's the only achievement he will record in the election. The stupid goat from agulu will be roundly defeated.

This is the first time there is fuel scarcity and that club of old hypocrites called the Ohaneze is not issuing ultimatums or accusimg the government of using fuel scarcity to marginalize Igbos.

They are now pretending to love Nigeria because their failure of a son is on the ballot.
An Igbo man will be President very soon, just not this comprehensive failure called Peter Obi.

It's refreshing to see how Ohanaeze has turned this into an Igbo thing. It will be nice to see how Igbos make him become the president. cool
