The Igbo socio-political group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has said that it would only support presidential candidates who make restructuring of the country paramount on the manifestoes.

A member of the group, Chuks Ibegbu in a release issued to the media also warned that the political future of Ndigbo lies on God and not on any man. This is even as he warned that nobody should play god over the political fate of Ndigbo.

Ibegbu who was reacting to the insinuation that Igbo political future in 2023 lies on the level of support they give to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 said that the group has nothing against Buhari and his wish to re-contest for the office of the president of the country in 2019. But was however quick to add that they would restructure the country and exhibit equity in the polity.

“We have nothing against President Buhari re-contesting, but nobody should threaten or cajole us.The actions, utterances and activities of any Presidential candidate for 2019 will determine if Ndigbo would identify with his or her aspiration in 2019.

“It is obvious that all sections of the country except Ndigbo have produced Executive President of Nigeria, and nobody on moral, political and equitable ground should deny them the position at the nick of time, he emphasized,

He restated the urgent need to create an additional state in the South East, re-visiting of the abandoned property issue and the engagement of the pro-Biafran groups in a dialogue.
