Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has cautioned the ruling party APC that Senate President Ahmad Lawan lacks the national acceptance and electoral integrity to defeat the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
Although there are many opposing voices to the announcement of the APC National Chairman, Senator Adamu that Senator Ahmad Lawan is the APC consensus candidate for 2023, Ohanaeze said such a move could lead to the end of the APC.
“It depicts immaturity and is a game over for the ruling party to retain power at the centre, as this miscalculation will backfire on the ruling party’s chances to win the 2023 election and we call on President Buhari to caution the party National Chairman Sen.Adamu, who appears to be biased and compromised by hawks in the party,” said Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide.
Ohanaeze salutes the courageous stance of APC Northern Governors to reject the APC National Chairman’s choice for consensus adding that those pushing for the choice Ahmad Lawan are oblivious to the fact that a political tsunami is sweeping across the country with the resurrection of the third force in Labour Party and Atiku.
Ohanaeze said that Lawan will lose the Presidential election against a united front of Nigerians and Southerners behind the third force and Senator Ahmad Lawan lacks the personality, character and appears clueless to fit into the legacies of President Buhari which only an Igbo can do.
“As a rubber stamp Senate President, his candidacy will crash out the ruling party from Aso Rock. Ndigbo rejects the candidature of Ahmad Lawan.
“A man who couldn’t find solutions through the legislative process to the insecurity challenges of the Northeast, this man will lead Nigeria into disintegration and collapse of Nigeria’s sovereignty and unity”, to be forewarned is be forearmed.”
