PDP Is Deceptive, South-East Governors Should Decamp To APC For Igbo Presidency – Ohanaeze
Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) Worldwide has urged South-East Governor to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 Presidential Elections.
This was contained in a statement signed by President General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and Secretary-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike on Wednesday, November 10, 2020.
The group said the attempt by the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, to compel the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, to reverse his decision of dumping the party to APC is wasted effort.
Ohanaeze described PDP leadership as deceptive, accusing the party of scheming to go against the zoning formula enshrined in its constitution that favours Southeast to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s Successor in 2023.
“The Apex Igbo Youth Socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide had described the Tuesday’s Persuasive meeting of National Leadership of PDP led by Prince Uche Secondus National working Committee, to convince the Southeast Governors Forum Chairman and Ebonyi State Governor, Engr Dave Umahi at Ebonyi State liaison office Abuja was the height of PDP’S deceit, last kick of a dying Horse and gathering of vultures to Continue to rape Igbo votes Unjustly especially in 2023 against the PDP Zoning Formula enshrined in her constitution that favours Southeast to produce the 2023 presidential Ticket and consequently produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s Successor in 2023.
“OYC lauded the Southeast Governors Forum Chairman and Ebonyi State Governor, Engr Dave Umahi for the wisdom and Wealth of experience to seek for the Zoning Formula enshrined in PDP’S Constitution to be implemented, but PDP National Leadership is aware of the imminent collapse of PDP Strongholds in Southeast to Mainstream Party APC, which will surely bring electoral catastrophe to PDP in 2023 elections.
“OYC call on Southeast Governors that PDP is economical with the truth and had been compromised by Northerners to Scuttle PDP’S Zoning 2023 Presidential Ticket to Southeast because PDP sees Igbo as conquered people and incapacitated which is Unjustly facilitated by an ill-conceived elite conspiracy against Southeast, but PDP had already perfected plans to Scuttle the Zoning Formula that favours Southeast, for a Northerner.
“Southeast Governors should decamp to APC without delay, as PDP Leadership deceptive visit to Umahi was an affirmative evidence that PDP is already jittery of losing Igbo votes, but it’s too late for PDP, as Igbo’s decision of abandoning PDP is irreversible and final verdicts of Igbo Nation,” the statement reads.
KanyiDaily recalls that Governor had earlier told Secondus that he wants to dump PDP and join the ruling party APC unless the party (PDP) could make a pronouncement that it would zone the Presidency to the South-East zone.
