Tinubu’ll listen to Igbos if we support him – Ohanaeze
Ohanaeze Ndigbo explained on Wednesday why President Bola Tinubu would hearken to the cries of the Southeast.
The apex Igbo social-cultural association said Tinubu would listen to the Southeast when governors from the region and Igbo leaders supported him.
This is according to Okechukwu Isiguzoro, a factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, who asserted that Igbo leaders pushing Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, to unseat Tinubu will fail.
Isiguzoro charged them to withdraw their support from Obi and extend it to Tinubu.
Speaking with the Daily Post, Isiguzoro said: “The Southeast governors should openly declare their support and work with Tinubu, irrespective of party affiliation.
“Those of them supporting Peter Obi should renounce it and openly declare for Tinubu because what we have seen is that the ruling party has two states, the APGA has one state, and the Labour Party and PDP have one state each in the Southeast.
“So, at this point, they should declare their open support for Tinubu. These are the things that would make Tinubu listen to the pleas of the Southeast.
“Those Ohanaeze and Igbo elders hiding under Peter Obi and pushing him to unseat Tinubu will never succeed; no power on earth can unseat Tinubu. We will ensure that all those unrepentant elders are made to support and work with Tinubu.”
