The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has disassociated itself from the report claiming that Peter Obi’s presidency is not “destined” adding that the Labour Party presidential candidate actually won the February 25 presidential poll.
A report credited to one Ambassador Tony Obizoba, who claimed to be the Director-General, Implementation and Strategic Planning, Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, had said that Peter Obi’s presidency was not destined to happen in 2023.
But reacting to the report, Ohanaeze in a rebuttal issued on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, described the report as “most reckless, irresponsible and mischievous.”
Ohanaeze stated that it would have ignored the publication to avoid dignifying such “maladjusted, impish scaremongers,” but noted that silence “in this circumstance would mean giving validity to such fallacy by the unsuspecting gullible public.

“For the purpose of clarity, Ohanaeze Ndigbo vehemently dissociates itself from any remark that suggests that Peter Obi is not destined to rule Nigeria.”
The apex Igbo body unequivocally stated that it had “sufficient evidence and empirical records to show that Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed won the presidential election held on Saturday, February 25, 2023.”

The statement partly read, “Ohanaeze Nidigbo is impressed, thrilled and fascinated by the groundswell and intimidating mass movement, which has come to signify the consciousness of the paradigm shift from a consumption economy to a production economy, which the Obi-Datti movement symbolises in the present day Nigeria.
