18 Governors, Ex-Leaders Behind Peter Obi’s Endorsement, Says Ohanaeze


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has stated that about 18 sitting governors are behind the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, This was disclosed in a statement issued to the press on Wednesday by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.

According to Isiguzoro, apart from the unnamed governors, a number of the country’s past leaders are also endorsing Obi’s candidature.

He stated that the governors are from different political platforms and all the All Progressives Congress, APC, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and other political parties, were already scared of the development.

Ohanaeze applauded Nigerians for their courage and their determination for trooping out to the different parts of the country in support of Peter Obi, enjoining them not to relent.

The statement said: “This is a movement to take back Nigeria from the days of locusts, greedy and selfish politicians.

“It is a movement to rescue the country from adversity, economic slump, ASUU strike, insecurity and corruption.

“Nigerians have demonstrated readiness to take back their country through the ballot box and it behoves on the INEC to make the votes count.”

The Ohanaeze scribe while reviewing the ‘Obidients’ rally conducted across the country, stated that “the PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and others are startled by the soaring popularity of the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, especially after the Obidients’ Independence Day rallies across the country cutting across ethnicity and religious lines. The mammoth crowd took the different cities of the country by storm.



“As we speak, about 18 Governors from the North and the South, cutting across party lines, are behind the scenes putting up structures for Obi to win the 2023 election. In addition, some former Presidents and elder statesmen are in support of Obi’s candidature.

“They are all convinced that Obi has something different from all the other candidates.

“We are glad that for the first time in the recent past, Nigerians are united in the dethronement of misgovernance in Aso Rock. They are determined to make a political change through the ballot box with a third force presidency.

“This is the first time we are seeing such a strong political movement in Nigeria that is not being sponsored by politicians, rather the masses own the project.

“You have seen the mass movement across the country and beyond; you have seen even children, the persons with special needs, the aged, everyone is part of this movement.”

He further called on INEC not to truncate the will of the people.

“We are going to hold the commission accountable for their actions. The INEC staff should not scuttle the desire of the people by doing the bidding of money-bag politicians,” he added.
