The youth section, Ohanaeze Ndigbo,has told the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to consider an Igbo as the party’s flag bearer in the 2023 presidential election, noting that failure to do so will make them face the wrath of the youths.
The youth wing vowed that if PDP failed to zone their presidential ticket to the south east none of their offices will stand in Igbo Land
Acc to the group, it would not hesitate to engage in a pitched battle with the party should their demand be rebuffed.
The group made this known through its National President, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, on Thursday in a release made available to DAILY POST in Owerri, Imo State.
According to the group, the only way PDP could reciprocate Ndigbo’s 24-year relentless sacrifice was to willingly give its presidential ticket to them,
The release read, “Without mincing words that, the forum, Northern Governors was inexistent, describing them as few ‘Fulani political power mongers’ who want to drag the Middle-belt into their illusion for them to produce Nigeria president in 2023.
“It’s idiotic to include Taraba, Benue, Nassarawa, Plateau, Bauchi, Jigawa, Kogi, Kaduna, Kwara etc that have had a fair share of Fulani herdsmen killing, banditry and kidnapping in their so-called imaginary 2023 presidential dream.
“With the quest of Fulani political cabal to retain power in 2023, if they dare it, it’s an indication that Nigeria at 61 this year will be the last independent day the entity called Nigeria will celebrate.”
