UPDATE: Count Us Out Of Anti-INEC Protest – Ohanaeze Youths

by Victor Ndubuisi

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, the preeminent Igbo sociocultural group, has disassociated itself from an upcoming demonstration against the Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC.

Additionally, the Igbo group encouraged Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, to accept the results of the polls and move on.

On June 12, Democracy Day, the South Unity Youth Coalition announced a large-scale demonstration to call for the dismissal of Professor Mahmoud Yakubu from his position as the INEC’s chairman.

According to the alliance, the credibility of the electoral process in Nigeria has been seriously undermined by Professor Yakubu’s leadership.


In response to South Africa’s presidential election, Obi, for his part, claimed on Saturday that there was a great deal of fraud and anomalies in the previous general election.

Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the national president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, expressed sadness that many politicians in the nation had not moved on more than a year after the general elections of 2023 in a statement released on Monday.

According to Okwu, in order to advance the nation, one would have thought that politicians would now work together with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

Obi Won The Presidential Election: According To Ohanaeze

He expressed concern that, “instead, what we have continued to see is that politicians and some of their paid agents have continued to fan embers of discord in the country owing to the outcome of the elections.

“We have said for the umpteenth time that there is no perfect election anywhere in the world.

“Our appeal to our brother, His Excellency Mr Peter Obi is to accept not just the outcome of the election, but the verdict of the apex court in the land, the Supreme Court.


“In the case of the 2023 election, without sounding biased, it is a wrong conclusion for anyone to say that the INEC performed woefully. This cannot be so, when the court upheld the majority of the election and in some of the cases where elections were annulled, it had to do with candidates’ qualifications and some other issues that could not be blamed on the INEC.”

“Igbo youths are not going to be lured into such a selfish agenda aimed at heating up the polity,” Okwu emphasised, urging anyone who were considering staging any type of demonstration to abandon their plans.


“Rather, we remain firmly behind President Bola Tinubu’s government and INEC. We welcome further reforms to the electoral process through the National Assembly.

“Any form of protest, we are not going to be a party to it and those behind the plot should jettison it.”
