A faction of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, led by Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, weekend, alleged that governors of South-East states betrayed their Igbo brothers who contested the nation’s number one seat.
Mazi Nnabuike made this declaration in a statement made available to Adadareporters in Owerri.
While stating that the governors ‘traded-off the people’s pride and destiny’, Nnabuike charged the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and the Association of South-East Town Unions, ASETU, to tackle the governors and not the delegates.
According to the statement, “It is wrong for anyone to say the delegates should be punished. Nobody should touch any of the delegates to the PDP and the APC national conventions.
“The real enemies of Ndigbo are the governors who ordered the delegates to vote for non-Igbos. It is a show of shame that the South-East governors could not muster votes to at least show the rest of the country that we are serious with the demand for a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction.
“Instead, they traded-off our pride with their selfish interest. They have by this singular act shown themselves to be the real enemies of Ndigbo.
“We, therefore, call on the MASSOB and ASETU to direct their anger towards the governors, who must tell us what happened to Igbo votes during the conventions. Any attempt to attack the delegates is an exercise in futility and would be resisted.”
