by Victor Ndubuisi

The All Progressives Congress’ (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is allowed to visit and canvass for votes in the South-East, according to the apex Igbo sociocultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

According to, the Coalition of South-East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) had warned Tinubu Presidency supporters to avoid the area.

However, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide warned the group against inciting needless political strife in the region in a statement made available to Newsmen on Friday.

It was illogical, according to Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the National President of OYC, for anyone to forbid Tinubu or anyone else from canvassing for votes in the South-East.


Okwu said the Ohanaeze would not sit by and watch any form of divisive politics, which he described as “the major factor that has kept Nigeria down for such a very long time.”

The Ohanaeze youths maintained that “every Nigerian reserved the right to campaign for candidates of their choice, by marketing such a person convincingly to the electorate.

“Politics of bitterness and acrimony will not take Nigeria anywhere, especially as the country is presently operating at its lowest ebb. There is no doubt that the country has never been this divided and this is why campaigns should be on issues and not ethnicity.

“Having said this, we make bold to say that Tinubu’s promoters are free to campaign for him anywhere in Igboland.

“Similarly, other presidential candidates should also have a smooth sail in taking their campaign to every part of the country.

“Ndigbo remain a very accommodating tribe in Nigeria, known for their hospitality and we are never going to lose that status in spite of provocations.


“All we demand from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, is a transparent process through which Nigerians would freely make their choice.”

“We advise all interest groups in the South-East, under whatever guise, to exercise restraint and not take actions that would lead to regrets in the future,” Okwu said.
