The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide yesterday, took a swipe at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over alleged plot to zone its vice presidential slot to the South-East geo-political zone. The organisation, which described the plot as an insult to the sensibility of every Igbo, warned Igbo politicians to henceforth, desist from making frantic effort for the position of vice president under the platform of the party.
In a statement signed by the National President of OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, and the Secretary General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, and made available to Leadership in Abakaliki said, “PDP must not insult the intelligence of the Igbo.
“If the PDP thinks the Igbo will wait till 2031 before it gets a chance at the presidential ticket of the party then the PDP isn’t just treacherous, it is delusional. Perhaps the PDP doesn’t need Igbo votes.
“The youths of Igbo land will not sit astride and watch the PDP field a candidate from the North and come to Igbo land to hoodwink people with sweetened gibberish.
“If the PDP tramples on equity and commonsense, and opts for a Northern candidate in 2023, then the PDP should forget about coming to Igbo land to seek votes in the 2023 presidential elections.”
