2023: Ohanaeze Shortlists Buhari Minister For Presidency
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the apex Igbo socio-political group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, have sought the support of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) in its bid to woo and support the supposed presidential ambition of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi for the 2023 leadership race.
Their host, Alhaji Yerima Shettima of the AYCF told the Igbo leaders that the Arewa Youth would go back to their elders and report to them about their visit and mission.
“I believe that you should bring out your candidate and we will bring out our own, and by the time we meet at the contest, whoever wins, should carry the day,” Yerima said.
While speaking at the Head office of the AYCF in Kaduna on Monday, Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Okechukwu Isiguzoro said he was in Kaduna with his delegation to solicit the support of Northerners for an Igbo Presidency in 2023.
According to Isiguzoro, “I thank my brother…Comrade Yerima Shettima for the wonderful reception..since we arrived…In fact, I’m very much amazed, the Kaduna we used to read in the dailies or watch on TV is different from the Kaduna I’m seeing.
“Everywhere is very serene and very peaceful. I commend my brother and the state government who have made it possible to have a wonderful environment.
“This is Igbo delegation for 2023 Presidency led by the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo. In fact..we launched this committee about a week ago and we decided that the best thing we should do is to interface with the North.
“This is because we know that the North with their population..vast majority, the North would always play the role of kingmaker, being the deciding factor in 2023 Presidency.
”The best thing we should do is to migrate to the other side of the world, come to this place and interface with the real people who are holding the masses.
“We were privileged to interface with some religious leaders who he (Yerima) took me to. Also, we had the opportunity to meet some traditional rulers and chieftains. We’ve discussed with them in house.”
The leader of the Igbo delegation for the 2023 presidency said they would continue to lobby all parts of the country for a power shift to the South East region.
According to him, the Igbo people including their kinsmen in Rivers and Delta States have abundant human resources that can produce the best for the Presidency.
He mentioned politicians like Rotimi Amaechi, Peter Obi, Okorocha, Umahi, etc as fit to succeed Buhari in 2023.
He however singled out Amaechi and declared that they would support him to become President in 2023.
