2023: Ohanaeze denies endorsing Tinubu for president

Tinubu ohanaeze president

The apex body of the Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has denied endorsing the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for the 2023 Presidency.

The group stated that a recent statement it made urging South-East politicians to emulate Tinubu was mistaken for an endorsement of the former governor of Lagos.

This was contained in a statement signed by the group’s Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro.

It read in part, “What was misinterpreted as an endorsement was a clarion call for a change in the attitudes of the APC South East governors and senators, whose activities de-marketed the South East in the APC primaries.

“Ndigbo was ashamed to admit that an APC South East Governor, who led APC to their defeats in Edo and Anambra governorship elections, spearheaded the aspiration of a North East aspirant against the South East aspirants in APC primary.”

According to Isiguzoro, Ndigbo will officially declare openly the candidate who is entitled to Igbo votes in 2023, “but for now there is no endorsement of any presidential candidate.”
