As talks about the 2023 Presidency continues in different quarters across Nigeria, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has warned the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP not to field a Northerner as the party’s Presidential candidate.
This warning was contained in a statement signed by its president-general, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and the secretary-general, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike.
In the statement, Ohanaeze noted that the PDP must not insult the intelligence of the Igbo adding that it is delusional if the PDP thinks the Igbo will wait till 2031 before it gets a chance at the presidential ticket of the party.
The group further stated that youths of Igbo land will not sit and watch the PDP field a candidate from the north and come to Igbo land to hoodwink people with sweetened gibberish.
According to Ohanaeze, the PDP should forget about getting votes from Igbo land if the party tramples on equity and commonsense and opts for a northern candidate in 2023.
It warned that no Igbo politician should accept a vice-presidential ticket from any party.
