2023: Ohanaeze Blasts Kwankwaso Over Comments On Peter Obi

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo group has called out Rabiu Kwankwaso over his recent comments on the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, saying that he is not fit to be president of the country.

While reacting to Kwankwaso's remarks, Ohanaeze’s National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonna, stated that the NNPP presidential flag bearer lacked the competence to assess the Igbos.

According to Ogbonna, the Igbos are prepared to produce the next president of Nigeria.

“Kwankwaso’s description is unfortunate. He does not know Igbo and lacks the capacity to assess its people. Such a comment is not expected of a presidential candidate.

“As far as I know, Igbo have been the pillar that has helped this country to survive so far. He should know that any person who can do well in business and live in any part of the country can succeed as president.


“Kwankwaso cannot be said to be the best material the country can have when issues of the presidency are discussed.

"Except for our parochial nature and the kind of politics we have in Nigeria, I do not think that our competence should be in doubt at any time", he said.
