The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the premier Igbo socio-cultural group, has issued a warning to President Bola Tinubu as the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal prepares to pronounce its judgment on the outcome of the 2023 election.
Ohanaeze warned that if the tribunal ordered a repeat, the North would most likely work against Tinubu.
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, stated that Northern leaders are unsatisfied with the President’s leadership style and nominations.
“The Northern leadership and political leaders are dissatisfied with Tinubu’s presidency and are waiting patiently for the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal verdict on September 16th, 2023, to know their line of action,” Isiguzoro said in a statement.
“Ohanaeze Ndigbo said that the Northern leadership shut down President Tinubu’s led Ecowas planned invasion of Niger Republic through the Northern Senators, the Traditional Rulers, and their Elder statesmen who are unhappy with the President’s style of leadership and key appointments to Southwest.
“The group said that they are weighing options, and in case of any Presidential Rerun election, the North will likely work against Tinubu.”
