Igbo cultural body Ohanaeze Ndigbo has said the “political future of Ndigbo lies on God and not on any man” as the 2019 election draws near.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had on Tuesday at the Southeast APC mega rally in Imo State, said the political future of Igbo in Nigeria, depends on his re-election in 2019.
“2019 is an election that will make or mar the chances of Igbo in Nigeria,” Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha who represented Buhari had said. “I want Igbo to make a paradigm shift.”
However, the Ohanaeze in a statement said, “The political future of Ndigbo lies on God and not on any man. Nobody should play God over the political fate of Ndigbo.
“We have nothing against President Buhari’s re-contest but nobody should threaten or cajole us with that.
“The actions, utterances and activities of any presidential candidate for 2019 will determine if Ndigbo would identify with his or her aspiration in 2019.”
