Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide is working for the emergence of Igbo presidency in 2023, noting that there is no going back on that decision.
In a communiqué signed by Mazi Okechukwu isiguzoro, President General of the group, and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, Secretary-General, the group expressed confidence that nothing would prevent the Igbo from getting the presidency in 2023.
The group urged all Igbo presidential aspirants to begin consultation with other geopolitical zones in the country to facilitate and ensure the emergence of an Igbo president in the coming elections.
Ohanaeze youths stated members of the group in the diaspora will raise millions of dollars at the end of 2022 to support whoever the youths nominate amongst the current southeast governors, or former governors as Igbo presidential candidate ahead of 2023 presidential election.
“Based on justice, equity and fairness, the 2023 presidency project of Igbo stock had kicked off in Enyimba city with a national committee set up to reach out to other prominent leaders/stakeholders and youth leaders from the six geopolitical zones,” the communique partly reads.
“We urge all Igbo presidential aspirants to start to activate their contacts towards building bridges across six geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council in the diaspora had promised to raise huge funds running into millions of dollars by end of 2022 to support whoever the youths nominate amongst the current southeast governors or former governors as Igbo presidential candidate ahead of 2023 presidential election.”
