Ohanaeze to Ndigbo: Vote credible leaders

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has urged the Igbo to vote for only credible candidates in the upcoming elections.

This was stated by Prof. George Obiozor, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Owerri, the Imo state capital.

Obiozor urged them to actively participate in the elections by obtaining a Permanent Voters Card (PVC), voting for qualified candidates, and safeguarding their votes.

He advised them to band together in order to achieve a common goal.

His words: “We can only succeed as a people when we are determined to achieve a common purpose and such a time is now. Igbos have a rendezvous with destiny in 2023 and I am sure history will vindicate us.

Obiozor bemoaned the funding gap impeding the organization’s activities, which has slowed project execution and goal achievement.

As a result, he urged Igbo project stakeholders to rally behind the organization and help it reach critical milestones for the Igbo nation and Nigeria.

Concerning the state’s security situation, Obiozor acknowledged the efforts and accomplishments of the security forces but advised that a more robust approach, incorporating technology, be adopted to deepen the fight against criminality in the region.

He said: “While we thank the security forces, we feel that more work needs to be done especially in the area of intelligence gathering, by the town unions and villages, as vigilantes and defenders.”

Obiozor added that, “Ndigbo are not known for cold-blooded murderous activities. We are also not known for arson. It is most disturbing that we now experience ominous signs of radicalization among a section of our youths. We will continue to appeal to all parents, political and religious leaders to put hands on deck to nip this menace in the bud before it portends a bleak future for our land.”

He continued,”We’ll keep calling on security forces to deploy the instrument of digital technology to track down any internal and external forces that are inciting our people to destabilise our much cherished homeland.”
