Ohanaeze Ndigbo Reportedly Says That Peter Obi's Presidency Is Not Destined To Happen In 2023

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, said Peter Obi’s presidency is not destined to happen in 2023.

The group lauded the success of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President-elect from the February 25, 2023, presidential election in Nigeria as gladdening to the heart.
Ambassador Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, Director General, Implementation and Strategic Planning, Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday March 5, 2023.

The statement reads: “The group visualises the success of the APC flagbearer in the election contest as one that will lead to unifying Nigerians for a focused development plan that will follow. Tinubu is capable, and we have no doubt in his capacity to ensure the continuity of the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari, which are apparent, indisputably correct and will continue to stand as good legacies for generations of leaders to come.

“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo congratulates Peter Obi for creating an unprecedented commitment to changing the status quo with a hitherto unpopular political party, making great sweeps of votes across all regions but North West of Nigeria to finish an “unputdownable” third position.

This Igbo umbrella body will continue to remember Obi, former Governor of Anambra State, as one who, despite all odds, laboured hard to actualise a Nigerian President from the Igboland. However, God has not destined it to happen in 2023. It may happen later. God spares the life of everybody.

“It would not be out of place to also congratulate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ‘s presidential candidate, His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar GCON, on his effort that ended in second position. Across the top three political parties were Igbo sons and daughters, who made the frantic effort because, as APC, PDP and LP, there are Igbo people who notably campaigned and voted.

“However, the bloc votes for Peter Obi in the South East should not be seen by anyone as anti-other Nigerians. It is more to show that the Igbo do not hate themselves, as some Nigerians say. In all, the general performances of the candidates across parties have given this group the confidence to agree that the emergence of one of them, who is Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is well deserved and we say congratulations!

“We also want to seize this opportunity to call on some elements in Lagos State, who see the vote for Labour Party’s Peter Obi as hate by Igbo people and who are, therefore, now threatening the lives of Igbo. It should not be so. From the investigations by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, the vote in Lagos was not solely an Igbo thing but a decisive voting system by a rainbow movement of people from across the tribes, who live and do business in Lagos State. It should be seen more as Nigerians across tribes exercising their franchise to freely vote to choose their leaders in a democracy as enshrined and guaranteed in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. 

Those who are circulating videos, threatening and drumming the sounds of war over the coming governorship and House of Assembly elections of March 11, 2023, in Lagos State because of Igbo people, should stop it in the national interest of Nigeria and the collective good of the masses of the Nigerian people.

“We would not end this press statement without having to extol the grand performance of President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, the General Lucky Irabor-led Nigerian Armed Forces, the IGP Usman Alkali Baba-led Nigeria Police Force and the Alhaji Yusuf Magaji Bichi-led Department of State Service (DSS) as well as the leadership of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for their neutrality that brought whatever challenges emanating from the recent voting exercise to the barest minimum.

“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, therefore, calls on the President, the security forces and security/intelligence agencies to improve on the performances of the last election to make the governorship and national assembly elections of March 11, 2023 more commendable.”

  1. Which report do we believe?

    ''The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said it won’t congratulate the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his vice president-elect, Kashim Shettima, now due to the declaration made by the second runner-up in the presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi, to challenge the victory in court.

    Ohanaeze, through its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Alex Ogbonnia, said the group endorsed the announcement made by Obi with regard to the 2023 poll, noting that the election, when compared with previous ones, was marred by abnormalities.

    Ogbonnia, in a chat with Sunday Vanguard, added that Ohanaeze does not doubt the capacity of the former Anambra State governor to recover his mandate on account of his past record.

    He said: “The election was marred by a lot of irregularities that have not been recorded in history. To that extent, we endorse the speech made by Obi with respect to the 2023 election.

    “Obi also highlighted the irregularities, he highlighted that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, gave us false impressions about how they will conduct the election, saying he is going to court to recover his mandate.

    “I have no doubt in Obi’s capacity to recover his mandate because he had done so in Anambra. By God’s grace, by the time he recovers the mandate; everything in the scenario will change.

    “So, we cannot begin to talk about the president-elect when we are sure that the wrong person has been declared winner. Obi said he has evidence that he won the election. To that extent, it is difficult for us to begin to embrace Tinubu as president-elect.”

    1. After collecting bribes, why wont they change mouth? Ndi uchu, betrayers and backstabbers

    2. Anyone who disagrees with you or prefers peace collected bribes. What a funny way to think.

  3. Who is Ohanaeze? Hungry lot. Ndi Ala.They need to shut their mouths up. This is beyond tribe and religion. Nigeria is desperate for change otherwise our country will just disappear on us. Supreme Court, here we come.


    1. Keep coming. You will stop somewhere then return to your home, if you have any.

    2. You better take ya case to Justice Anyadike of Umuahia. Na only him fit compensate una with audio justice (like E do Kanu) wey nobody go implement. At least, E go dey record.

    3. Time shall tell and we will know who will have the final say.

    4. Ohaneze is speaking for itself. Uploaded results are already buttressing what any sane,objective observer knew all along. The Nigerian Presidential elections were rigged. Obi will claim his mandate!!

  4. Akụkọ Mike ejeaha.

    Lacking in substance and credibility.

    1. Ezigbote Akuko Mike ejeagha!

    2. Obidents, una never cin somtin!!!! Matter don change. APGA Chairman said Obi vowed never to leave APGA, but he did and that OBI will never amount to anything Politically. A man that can't keep his words? What's the difference between him and other Presidential hopefuls? Nna, to all Obidients...una just dey start!

    3. You haven't broken promises before ? both you and your Apga chairman? Nobody is perfect and if changing party was his only crime, then its nothing and its absolutely nothing.

    4. 13:19, so how is that ur comment either here or there?

  5. No togetherness at all. The reason northerners will always have an edge over all. They stand with their own.

    1. They did not stand with their own in Taraba, Nasarawa, Benue, Borno, Niger, Zamfara, Kogi and other northern states. This limited effort put in is why you didn't bother with inroads in the North and so, did not clinch the ticket.

  6. Ndi anywhere belle face, and selfish lots 😂.
    They should go and yansh down joor, as per destiny determiners that they are.

    1. Teacher Nk, you used to be civil, but in the recent past, you have started using derogatory terms. Doesn't fit your personality. Pls stop it - this is a public forum.

  7. There are people masquerading as Ohaneze Ndi Igbo so this is another produgal group that are being used to create confusion amongst Igbo's!

  8. Wise elders. Steering us in the right direction.

    1. Lol who do you love?

      An impostor?

      Okay keep loving...Professor Obiozor was the immediate past president...The current president should be able to speak for them.

      Who is this DIVIDE -AND-RULE IMPOSTOR trying so hard to speak on behalf of Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti!!!

      Is Yusuf Datti an Igbo man???

      Tony Obizoba does your Ohanaeze have the Labour Party under its Umbrella?

      Is Yusuf Datti a member of Ohaneze? Onye aguu

  10. "People" who did not endorse Obi's Presidential bid, but were shook at the turnout, instead of them to hide their faces in shame, they're there embarrassing themselves...
    More shock loading for them.

    1. Sugar This is not an Ohaneze exco,,,,he is a batshit from the backside of no where

  11. the Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide and Ohaneze Ndi Igbo ARE TWO DIFFERENT ORGANISATIONS.

    Ohaneze Ndi Igbo represents the entire Igbo race while Tony Obizobas Ohaneze Ndigbo General Assemby Worldwide was just created to foster confusion amongst the Igbo race just the way pastors adorned sutans for a certain meeting ....Know this and Know Peace

    1. Instead of investing in the right means to garner support, it is backdoor divide and rule dummy organizations and people that is the only way they know. Low IQ manipulators
