The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has disclosed who the people of the South East will support in the forthcoming presidential poll.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the organisation, Chuks Ibegbu, speaking with DAILY POST, said Ohanaeze will vote for any candidate who is ready to restructure Nigeria as the country is in dire need of restructuring.
Ibegbu said: “We have always emphasized on the restructuring of Nigeria that the country as it’s presently constituted cannot work. We need to restructure the country, physical, structural and political restructuring. It’s only these that will open up the dormant energy in the country.
“The Igbo, in particular, perform well when there is a level playing ground, as it is now our energies are bottled up they can’t perform because the country is against them.
“So our position is that whoever will restructure Nigeria, open up the latent and hidden capacities of Nigeria that is the person we will support. If Buhari is ready to turn a new leaf and restructure Nigeria we will embrace him for another four years and if Atiku is genuinely committed to restructuring Nigeria we will support him.
“If Ezekwesili, Hashim and other presidential candidates are ready to restructure Nigeria, we will support them.”
