A faction of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has warned Nigerians not to trust the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, to keep his alleged agreement with the party governors to only rule Nigeria for a single term.
The Secretary General of the Igbo group, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said Atiku would betray PDP governors on the agreement.
Isiguzoro said in a statement on Friday, “Ndigbo and Nigerians understand the implications of the transition of power from President Buhari to another Northerner in 2023, particularly to Atiku Abubakar, who is seen as a precarious and unpredictable individual, who never keeps to an agreement.
“This is the height of hypocrisy and nepotism for the successor of President Buhari to be another Northerner, therefore making it easier for the first time for the North to hold Power for uninterrupted 16 years against the South after many wasteful years of the North in military regimes.
”Atiku’s presidency will be full of deception and falsehood as he forbade to endorse an agreement with Southern PDP Governors for a single term pact, with the recent refusal of the Northern Caucus of PDP to relinquish the National Chairman of the Party while holding the Presidential candidate and the recent resignation of BoT Chairman Walid, a political maneuver and prank to spite Ndigbo.
“Ndigbo will consider the adoption of a Southerner for 2023 as the person who will receive Igbo votes.”
