Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide Congratulates Tinubu, Confident He Will Unify Nigerians

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has congratulated the President-elect on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over his electoral victory.


The Director General, Implementation and Strategic Planning, Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, Ambassador Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, in a statement today, March 5, expressed confident that Tinubu unify Nigerians for a focused development plan that will follow

The statement reads in part: “The group visualises the success of the APC flagbearer in the election contest as one that will lead to unifying Nigerians for a focused development plan that will follow.

“Tinubu is capable, and we have no doubt in his capacity to ensure the continuity of the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari, which are apparent, indisputably correct and will continue to stand as good legacies for generations of leaders to come.

“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo congratulates Peter Obi for creating an unprecedented commitment to changing the status quo with a hitherto unpopular political party, making great sweeps of votes across all regions but North West of Nigeria to finish an “unputdownable” third position.

“This Igbo umbrella body will continue to remember Obi, former Governor of Anambra State, as one who, despite all odds, laboured hard to actualise a Nigerian President from the Igboland. However, God has not destined it to happen in 2023. It may happen later. God spares the life of everybody.

“The group also congratulated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ‘s presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on his effort that ended in second position.

“They called on some elements in Lagos State, who see the vote for Labour Party’s Peter Obi as hate by Igbo people and who are, therefore, now threatening the lives of Igbo, saying that it should not be so.

“Those who are circulating videos, threatening and drumming the sounds of war over the coming governorship and House of Assembly elections of March 11, 2023, in Lagos State because of Igbo people, should stop it in the national interest of Nigeria and the collective good of the masses of the Nigerian people.”

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the security forces and security/intelligence agencies to improve on the performances of the last election to make the governorship and national assembly elections of 11 March more commendable.
