Ebonyi guber: Ohanaeze Ndigbo youth wing canvasses for equity


The Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Wing has canvassed for equity in choosing the next governor of Ebonyi in the 2023 general elections.

Mr Damian Okafor, Leader of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation’s youth wing gave the urge on Monday during its equity advocacy tour of Ivo Local Government Area.

Okafor said during the tour at Ihietutu community, Ishiagu that equity remains the only way to sustain the prevailing harmony which pervades the political landscape of the state.

“Do not derail in your belief on power rotation among the three senatorial districts as it has been enshrined in the people’s minds.

“The first executive governor of the state came from the northern senatorial district and he handed over to someone from the central district.

“Power afterwards rotated to the southern district where the incumbent governor hails from.

“This implies that in the spirit of equity, the northern district should take the next turn in 2023.

He commended stakeholders of the area for ensuring a peaceful atmosphere and urged the youths in particular to be law abiding.

The Head of the community, Chief Emeka Ogbonnia commended the Ohaneze Ndigbo’s youth leadership for the advocacy, pledging that the people would support moves that would ensure peace in the state.

“The people wholly support return of power to the northern district and in this particular instance, the Izzi clan.

“We are wholly in support of Chief Francis Nwifuru who is from the area because his people supported the southern district when we sought such in 2015.

He commended Gov David Umahi for his infrastructural strides in the state which had transformed it beyond expectations.

“The people would continue to be law abiding and contribute in achieving peace and harmony in the state.

Stakeholders of the community and the council offered their support for power rotation and ultimate return of power to the northern senatorial district.
