2023: Ohanaeze Ditches Atiku For Dishonouring Zoning

By Adadainfo

A faction of Ohanaeze Ndigbo says Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), breached the zoning principles of the party by contesting and winning the presidential candidacy of the party ahead of the 2023 elections.

The group’s secretary-general, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in a statement on Monday, said the PDP is not trustable having breached its own constitution.

According to the statement, “Anyone who breaches the gentleman’s arrangement by our patriots for a rotational presidency between the North and the South as enshrined in our consciousness to balance equity, inclusiveness, national peace, and stability of the country does not mean well for Nigeria.”

Isiguzoro said it was the turn of the South to produce the president of Nigeria, adding that anything contrary would ‘plunge Nigeria into the abyss of disintegration’.

According to him, “Atiku Abubakar’s desperation is not healthy for the Northern region as the North has seen total neglect, poverty and insecurity.

“It’s only a southern presidency that will unify the country and end the insecurity challenges in Nigeria, not Atiku Abubakar.

“The nightmarish episode of a sitting president always on medical tourism in Europe, and Asia must end with President Buhari in 2023.

“PDP and Atiku should remain in opposition until they are ready to accept that principle of zoning in PDP’s constitution should be respected and obeyed before seeking power in the future.”
