To maintain Nigeria’s unity, the Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has requested former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to suspend his presidential bid.

The Igbo group said that if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gives the former Vice President the presidential nomination in 2023, Nigeria will be completely disintegrated.

The National President of Ohanaeze Youth Council, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, told reporters in Owerri, Imo State’s capital, that the council frowns at what he termed as Atiku Abubakar’s “undue eagerness” to win the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential ticket.

“If the PDP denies a southeasterner Presidential ticket, the only thing over 50 million Igbo youths must ensure is that Nigeria remains one by massively voting APC presidential candidate from the southeast, and no PDP office/flag will stand erect in the southeast from ward level to state level,” the Igbo youth group said. We’ll battle the PDP in the same way that Yakubu Gowon did to keep Nigeria united.

“Atiku Abubakar should go back to the historical line of PDP founding from G34 led by Dr Alex Ekwueme before it became a political party, to ensure that the southeast has paid the ultimate price in PDP more than any other zone in Nigeria,” the council advises.

Further, the organisation stated that citizens from the southeast have contributed to the foundation, growth, and maintenance of the PDP as Africa’s largest political party.

“Atiku Abubakar’s decision to run for the PDP is a call to disrupt Nigeria’s unity and peace, and such a move will result in national political disaster, chaos, and ethnic disputes, sinking Nigeria.”

“If the PDP rejects a southeasterner Presidential ticket, the only thing over 50 million Igbo youths can do is vote overwhelmingly for an APC Presidential candidate from Southeast, and no PDP office or flag would stand upright in Southeast from ward level to state level.” We’ll battle the PDP in the same way that Yakubu Gowon did to keep Nigeria united.

“The PDP must resist utilising Atiku Abubakar, Aminu Tambuwal, and other greedy presidential aspirants from outside the Southeast to destroy Nigeria’s national unity,” Igboayaka said.

“It’s insulting that Atiku Abubakar boasted about his running companions, Ben Obi and Peter Obi. “If any Nigerian wants to see Nigeria become the ‘Giant of Africa,’ as advocated by Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe (Zik of Africa), Atiku Abubakar should relinquish his presidential quest and back a genuine and competent presidential candidate from the Southeast to construct the Nigeria of Zik vision,” he said.

“Atiku Abubakar must awaken his human conscience and recognise that of Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones, Southeast gave him the vast majority of votes, prompting President Muhammadu Buhari’s current administration to nick-name Southeastern people 5%. As a result, Atiku Abubakar and the PDP family owe the people of the southeast a debt of gratitude in the 2023 presidential election.”
