Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, said that the Labour Party Peter Obi is not destined to become the president of Nigeria in 2023.
The Igbo group also congratulated the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC), on his victory in the February 25 presidential election.
This was done in a statement by the Director General, Implementation and Strategic Planning, Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, Ambassador Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, on Sunday, the 5th of March, 2023.
The statement read that the group pictures the victory of APC’s Bola Tinubu in the election contest as one that will unify Nigerians for a focused development plan that will follow.
The Ohanaeze describes Tinubu as a capable democrat and expressed confidence in him, stating that the president-elect is someone capable of continuing the great feats of president Muhammadu Buhari when he assumes office on the 29th May, 2023.
“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 statement read in part.
Speaking on the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, the group stated that Peter Obi will always be remembered as one who, despite all odds, laboured hard to actualise a Nigerian President from the Igboland. The statement read in part.
“However, God has not destined it to happen in 2023. It may happen later. God spares the life of everybody,”
