We’ll Support Obi’s Presidential Bid ‘For Equity And Justice’ – Ohanaeze Worldwide Declares

The Igbo socio-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbio Worldwide has declared its support for Labour Party, (LP), presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

The association is different from Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the group chaired by George Obiozor.

Ohanaeze Council of Elders Chairman Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu declared that the group supports Obi because they think it to be the correct thing to do.

Iwuanyanwu stated that a coalition made up of leaders from the south-east, south-south, and middle belt will support Obi in the general election of 2023 during his remarks on Thursday at the conclusion of the council’s finance and development committee meeting.

“Many of them still believe that it is still the turn of the Igbo, and in their wisdom, they said the presidency should be brought to the south-east,” NAN quoted him as saying.

“They have taken a common position to support Peter Obi, and of course, we the Igbo in Ohanaeze feel very happy.

“The truth is that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide is a part of the agreement by the southern and middle belt forum to endorse the candidacy of Peter Obi.”

According to him, the desire for equity and justice in 2023 is the driving force behind the decision to support the LP presidential candidate.

Iwuanyanwu continued by saying that the organisation is closely observing the campaigns leading up to the 2023 presidential election and keeping an eye out for any problems.
