The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has disassociated self from the moves made by a member of the All Progressives Congress in Ebonyi State, Charles Enya, seeking an amendment of the constitution to allow President Muhammadu Buhari to get another term in office.
The President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in a statement said the move was unconstitutional and parochial.
He said, “We dismiss the report credited to Charles Enya, an Igbo APC chieftain, seeking for the third term for the President and governors through constitutional amendment as idiotic, unconstitutional and parochial. As Igbos, we disown such immature moves as un-Igbo and a huge joke.
“As it stands now with support from Middle belt youths and Niger Delta youths leaders championing the zoning of the presidency to South-East in 2023, the coast is clear for any Igbo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
The youth wing of the pan Igbo group, in collaboration with its parent body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, commended President Buhari for denouncing the third term agenda outright.
“We still insist that Igbo politicians should massively defect to the APC to have a political balance in Igbo land, APC holds the key for the future of the Igbo people in 2023. We urge the governors of the old eastern region to see the handwriting on the wall and collapse PDP in the region.’’
