The pan Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has sounded a strong warnings to Nigerians to be wary of the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Abubakar Atiku.
A press statement by the Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, alleged that the entrance of Atiku Abubakar to Aso Rock would be a rival to further milk the treasure of the country dry.
According to him, Ngerians must rise and halt the return of nosy politicians who are imperial looters to Aso Rock in 2023.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has alerted Nigerians that thieves and looters are about to gain access to State House Aso Rock villa trotting on ethnic chauvinism and Fulani jingoism.
“Atiku Abubakar and his cronies have craftily conceived a masterpiece by gambling on the ignorance of the unenlightened Northern populace in alliance with Aso Rock cartel to cruise to power in 2023, but the only impediments and hurdles are how to hoodwink and trick the Southeast and Niger/ Delta voters into the blasphemous union of looters.
“Nigerians know that before the 2003 elections, Ex- President Olusegun Obasanjo lost control of the PDP party structure to his erstwhile Vice President Atiku Abubakar when the latter allegedly used the then Governors to bolster his chances of winning the 2003 elections against President Obasanjo.
“It is an open secret that Obasanjo knelt and stooped low to beg Atiku Abubakar his deputy before he could return and win his re-election in 2003. Obasanjo should open up to Nigerians, and tell them the truth about what transpired in the privatization exercise led by Atiku Abubakar during his tenure”.
“Atiku’s Presidency will be a revival of looting and re-looting of Nigeria’s remaining assets and treasure. A man who does not believe in Nigeria and is seen as a Cameroonian should have no business in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in 2023.
“The assemblage of looters and marauders in his camp speaks volumes of what would happen in his desperation to ride on unenlightened Northerners to gain access to power and Nigerians must rise and halt the return of nosy politicians who are imperial looters to Aso Rock in 2023.
“A man who is claiming to unify the country but couldn’t find any possible way to unify the PDP, a man who has dismissed the opportunity for a southerner to replace Iyochia Ayu as PDP National Chairman rather he plotted the return of Wabara to spite the southeast who is a champion of anti southeast agendas.
“If Obasanjo could kneel for Atiku his deputy in 2003 while is Atiku finding impossible to beg Southern and, Middle belt Governors and leaders, who are resisting the injustices and atrocities committed by Atiku Abubakar by arm twisting the PDP zoning principles that favor the southeast for his gains.
“Nigerians should halt Atiku from becoming Buhari’s successor which portends a transition of power from Northerner to another Northerner, from a Fulani to another Fulani, from Muslim to another Muslim, from disaster to disaster in 2023”, he reiterated.
