Group Challenges Tinubu Over Rumoured 2023 Presidential Ambition 

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC), Worldwide has challenged the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu over his alleged 2023 presidential ambition.

This was made known in a statement on Tuesday by the Secretary-General of the group, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike.

Africa News24 (AN24) understands that the statement by the group said the Igbos will be mobilized in the Southwest to thwart any plan by Tinubu to lead the country.

The group accused APC’s Tinubu of unleashing terror on the peaceful Igbos during the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.

The group in its statement cited the Oba of Lagos’ “threat of drowning Igbo voters inside the lagoon and the secret mobilization of OPC boys to chase away potential Igbo voters in some quarters in the South West especially Lagos state”.

The statement noted that the leader of the party must not hesitate to clear himself of the “allegations of fighting Igbos not to be part of President Muhammadu Buhari government, resisting the plea of Northern Elders Forum for Buhari to appoint an Igbo as Secretary to the Federal Government in 2015, provocative onslaught against the Igbos through demolition of markets in areas Igbos won some Federal and State Legislative seats in Lagos”.

It added that “Northerners are now wiser than 2015 where they blindly entered a political alliance with South West that solely benefitted Tinubu political dynasty.

“They have clearly seen that Tinubu’s Presidency will divide Nigeria along ethnic and religious lines.

“As the political pact and alliance between the North and southwest led by Tinubu seem to crumble, the road is cleared for the re-alignment of the North and Eastern Region becomes more feasible.”
