Youths of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South East have warned Imo state Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma, to desist from his campaign of calumy against Senator Rochas Okorocha’s presidential bid ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The group under the South East APC Young Progressives Forum also cautioned Ohanaeze Ndigbo from being used by those it described as scrupulous and hungry elements to drag its name to the mud.

The national convener, Comrade Paschal Candle, in a statement in Awka, particularly frowned at the comment credited to one Osmond Nkeoma, claiming that Okorocha was unfit to be the president of Nigeria. He insisted that the statement was not only petty, uncalled for and embarrassment to the group and ndigbo in general, but a demonstration of the weakness of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation.

He called on Uzodinma to concentrate on governance, stressing that his recent activities had shown he was out to fight Okorocha for no just cause.

The statement partly reads: “Our attention has been drawn on the recent visit of one Osmond Nkeoma and some scrupulous elements to Imo state government, where they claimed that Senator Rochas Okorocha is unfit to become the president of Nigeria. Their reasons were based on baseless fact that Okorocha achieved nothing while he was governor.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo is a reverred umbrella body and voice of Ndigbo and should not allow some scrupulous and hungry elements to bring its name to the mud. The South East Young Progressive Forum finds the statement issued by Osmond Okeoma as an embarrassment to APC Young Progressive Forum and Ndi Igbo in general.

“We warn Mr Osmond Okeoma and his cohorts to desist from such act of pull him down syndrome. We stand for Nigerian president of Igbo extraction, not Igbo president of Nigeria. The likes of Senator Rochas Okorocha, Chief Peter Obi, Senator Orji Uzo Kalu, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, Governor Dave Umahi, Okonjo Iweala and so many others are eligible and qualified to become Nigerian president in 2023, if eventually zoned to South East.

“We make bold to say that the visit of the so called Mr Osmond Okeoma and his scrupulous elements was a hatchet job of Imo state governor to discredit Senator Rochas Okorocha presidential bid and we will not allow such to happen.

“We as a group are not here to highlight the achievements of Senator Rochas Okorocha as Imo state governor, but to make it clear that Igbo president is a collective project achievable by collective efforts with love, unity of purpose and brotherhood.

“We urge Ohanaeze Ndigbo to desist from being used by some elements, who did not mean well for Ndi Igbo. Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Governor Hope Uzodinma alone cannot determine the Igbo man that can be president of Nigeria. We will want them to learn from history.

“We call on Ohanaeze Ndigbo to call their members to order and for them to mind their utterances. If there is one person, who has brought peace to Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo and supports Ohanaeze ndi Igbo, it is Senator Rochas Okorocha.

“We urge our leaders mostly those in APC from South-East to re-strategise for 2023. Our leaders should start now to consult, interact and negotiate with other parts of Nigeria on why they should support South East this time. We maintain that power is not given, power is taken.”

    Of all the people, mentioned in this article, by the so, called Youths, it’s only but two persons, can get the supports of Ndi Igbo, for the presidential race. These youths organizations, are slaves of the politicians. The youths comments, indicates how they are in the Fraudulent acts of their politician masters. With the names mentioned by the youths, shows that Ndi Igbo does not have a person who will become a president. Almost all the people in their Lists, are in alliance with Hausa Fulanis. Most of them have taken Chieftaincy Titles of Ndi Fulani, and they are in accordance with all the actions against Umu Igbo n’ile. How can some body, who doesn’t have Igbo name, will claim to be a Youth Leader of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo. Example, 99.9% of Yerubas and Ndi Hausa, does not use English name, as their name. Ndi Igbo need only people like Dr. Emeka Anyaoku, to be president from Ala Igbo. Of all those that have participated in that Nigeria politics, it’s only Obi and Ezi Nwanyi-ex Finance Minister, both have records of achievements. Ndi Igbo, will not produce the next president, because the people of Yeruba had an agreement with Ndi Hausa in 2015. Finally, 2023, will likely, be the last year for the Country called Nigeria.
