Ohanaeze Threatens To Boycott Polls Over Zoning

Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Sunday, threatened to boycott the 2023 presidential election should the two major political parties, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, refuse to zone their tickets to the Southern region.

This was as a result of the position of Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, and the Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, who both believe the presidential contest should be thrown open.

But Ohaneze, through its Secretary-General,Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro warned that, “any attempt by northern socio-cultural groups to arm-twist the two major political parties, through their sons who are National Chairmen of both the APC and the PDP, to derail the electoral process, will lead to revolts and boycott of the 2023 presidential election in the South, especially in the East.”

He claimed that the leadership of both political parties were under the northern lobbyists and northern socio-cultural groups “to destroy the trust and confidence that bind Nigerians together through the rotational presidency between the North and the South.”

The sad experiences of the North when they frustrated President Jonathan’s administration and installed Buhari in 2015,of which the aftermath of that betrayal is the worsening insecurity in the North,” Isiguzoro said.

If the Northern candidates emerge in APC and PDP,“we will encourage the Southern Governors and socio-cultural groups to mobilize our people to boycott the 2023 presidential election in the South, especially in the South-East.

Whenever it’s the time for the Igbo to attain any position, there will be gang ups and clandestine networks to fuel crisis and disasters against them, but it won’t work this time. Igbos will surely survive all these political conspiracies against them.”
