2023 Presidency: Ohanaeze charges Peter Obi, others To Reject VP Slot

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has advised all presidential hopefuls from the South-East not to accept the role of running mate in the 2023 election.

The warning came amid reports that Mr. Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State, was considering running as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate.

Obi was the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Vice Presidential Candidate in the 2019 general election.
It is currently being speculated that he would once again deputize Atiku in the upcoming election.

“Speculation has been rife that Mr. Peter Obi, Okwute Ndigbo has accepted to be Atiku’s running mate and we cannot ignore it again.

“This is why we are sounding a note of warning that neither Obi nor any other Igbo man or woman should jettison this project. They should not accept to be a spare tire any more.

“No Igbo man should be cajoled out of this race because we are part and parcel of this country. If it is otherwise, this is the time to let us know and we will take our fate in our hands.
