2023: How Wike Scuttled Igbo Presidency – Ohanaeze Youths


The Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has declared that the political pursuit of G-5 governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is driven by selfish interest.

National President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, who stated this on Wednesday, pointedly said that it was Governor Wike, who selfishly worked against a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction but, now playing the Ostrich having lost his bid to pick the Presidential ticket of the PDP.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council also said that there is nothing like integrity in what the Rivers State governor is doing, stressing that his claim of leading ‘an integrity group’ should be discarded.

The Wike-led aggrieved G-5 governors are presently in London, United Kingdom where they are expected to take a final stand on a candidate they are to support for the February 2023 presidential election.

These were contained in a statement made available to Forefront News, in which Okwu also said that Nigerians cannot be deceived by the likes of Governor Wike, who is now claiming to be fighting against injustice in the PDP when it was clear that he is merely pursuing selfish interests.

In the words of Okwu; “It is on record that Governor Wike scuttled the micro-zoning of the PDP presidential ticket to the South-East because he felt he would bamboozle his way and get the ticket.

“But having failed to realise that selfish ambition, he turned to be shouting for justice and equity. Where was the equity when he chased Mr. Peter Obi out of the PDP? Where was equity when he refused all entreaties to back someone from the South-East for the PDP ticket? Now that he failed to clinch to the ticket, he now realises there is equity.

“Nigerians should not be deceived by Wike’s gimmicks. I also urged the governors moving with him to realise that he is pursuing a personal agenda,” he noted.

Okwu said that as Nigerians await an announcement from the G-5 governors, the citizens should not expect anything different but one that will be laced with personal desires and gains.
