The Ohanaeze  Ndigbo has tongue -lashed Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State for his controversial views and opinion on the 2023 Igbo presidential bid.

Reportedly Uzodinma had said that the Igbo presidency project in 2023 was not possible as the ruling APC is not interested in pushing the agenda.

Ohanaeze has knocked Uzodinma for his statements about the igbo presidency as the former posited that the latter is a traitor who is going around back-stabbing his own.

The Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro issued a statement where he lashed out at Uzodinma for his statements.

The statement read: “Ndigbo never under any fora, mandated Governor Hope Uzodinma to speak on behalf of the Southeast with regards to the 2023 Presidency.

“Uzodinma’s standpoints on 2023 Igbo Presidency is his myopic and personal views not that of Ndi-Imo or Ndigbo at large. He should be ignored, as he is suffering from verbal diarrhea and lacks the locu-standi to speak on behalf of the collective bargaining and aspirations of Ndigbo.

 “Governor Uzodinma cunningly changed positions of 2023 Igbo Presidency to 2027, when he hoped to be ready for his already dead presidential ambition.

“Our suspicions have been reinforced by the desperate activities to exclude Imo State from being part of the southern Governors resolutions, especially on VAT, Southern Presidency and the signing of anti-open-grazing laws.

“Ndigbo are bewildered and we ask- can anything good come out of Governor Hope Uzodinma that will make our people happy except for sounds of fury, deaths, and misery of hopelessness that had encircled Imo State.”

“We are foreseeing hazards ahead if Governor Uzodinma’s continuous pursuit of the ‘fifth columnists’ agenda is not stopped.

“We are still praying for the good personality of Uzodinma to be resurrected once again, as we suspect that his political Emperors are hypnotizing him like they used Chief Femi Fani Kayode to destroy and mastermind the problems of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
