The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), apex youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has unanimously rejected calls for restricting the 2023 presidential ambition to only Igbos within the enclave of the Southeast geopolitical zone.

The Council made this known in Enugu, today, Thursday, March 4, 2021 after its stakeholders’ meeting, through the Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to OYC National President, Chukwuemeka Chimerue.

Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, the National President of the Council, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka noted that it was the turn of Ndigbo to aspire and become the number one citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

According to him, “those limiting the collective aspiration of Ndigbo to only include the Southeast lack common sense of history and are agents of divide and rule against the Igbo unity.”

Igboayaka noted that states and geo-political zone creations were concepts of balkanization of the Igbo nation, adding that Igbos are originally occupying 13 states in the South-South, Southeast and North Central Nigeria.

He decried the harm of state creation against Ndigbo, recalling that in 1976, state creation divided Ndoki people into three wherein two communities were ceded to Rivers state and one to Abia state while another community was ceded to Akwa Ibom.

“Today, the culture and brotherhood of great Ndoki clan have been balkanized, but Ohanaeze Youth Council will not stand by and let this conspiracy to continue… We must earnestly unify the Igbo race for economic and political advancement. Therefore, any person from Abia, Rivers and Akwa Ibom have the equal right to vie for the president of Nigeria in 2023,” Igboayaka stated.
