Any Igbo man backing Atiku ‘is doing Yahoo-Yahoo’ – Ohanaeze

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has again lambasted Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Igbo sociocultural organization has implored the former vice president (Atiku) not to think of getting any substantial vote from the South-Eastern zone of the country in the 2023 general elections.

The group made this revelation through a statement released on Tuesday by Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro.

Isiguzoro told the PDP presidential candidate not to “squander his time and resources for any reason in the South-east and Igbo-speaking areas of South/south and Middle belt.”

He said all those following Atiku from the region were doing so because of personal gains.

Isiguzoro said even though Atiku’s running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa was a true Igbo son, he was in the wrong permutation.

He further said that, “our people gave Atiku all the support in 2019 but shortly after the election, he abandoned them to their fate only to return four years later.

“Now, he has even come openly to say he is merely a Northern candidate. He should know that all those flocking around him are doing ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’ to him.

“Igbo political elites, including the PDP Governors, know that Atiku will lose in the Southeast without getting the required constitutional 25% votes after his infamous Kaduna declaration that he belongs to the North only.

“Nigerians from the North, West, South, and East are encountering severe hunger, unemployment, and insecurity challenges. Any Presidential candidate dwelling on ethnicity and religious cards, without showing evidence of rescuing the country from the abyss of economic crisis and social dilemma Nigerians found themselves, will be disgraced at the polls.

“What Nigerians need now is someone who will unify the entire country, not a sectional leader like Atiku.”
