2023: Get Ready For Ballot Revolution, Ohanaeze Charges Igbo

Biafra: Ohanaeze Faults IPOB Over Ban On Nigeria National Anthem

The youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), has urged Igbo youths to get ready for the ballot revolution in the forthcoming 2023 general election.

The National President of the Council and Spokesman of Indigenous Ethnic Youth Leaders of Nigeria, Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka, gave this charge today, Wednesday, at Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport, shortly after he arrived from a consultation meeting in Abuja.

It could be recalled that the youth leader has in recent times, embarked on a series of consultation meetings in readiness for the Ethnic Nationalities Southern Youth Leaders Summit coming up in Owerri, Imo State.

Comrade Igboayaka reiterated that the only available option for Igbo youth and Nigerian youths at large was to make use of ongoing voter registration to register en mass all the youth from 18 years above to secure their future in the next political dispensation. It 

He insisted that all political profiteers in the Igbo nation would be sacked at the forthcoming 2023 general elections, hence there will be a political tsunami in the entire Igbo land. 

He urged every eligible voter to embrace the opportunity, as created by the new voter's registration to register and obtain their PVC.

"I detest the lackadaisical approach of a new generation of Igbo extraction over the re-registration of voter registration.
The 2023 general election will be a political tsunami in Igbo land, there will be total retirement of all politicians that have stolen our wealth from 1999 till date. The Igbo youth shall organize a send-forth protest to all National assembly bench warmers. None of the Governor's from Igbo extraction shall near the Senate seat".

"The youth shall beat a new drum for our governors who think that it's a political culture that after eight years looting, misappropriation and diversion of local funds they will acquire Senatorial seat.
This culture of decorating looters with juicy positions must stop as we open a new political chapter from 2023.

"I, therefore, advise all the legible voters from secondary schools to University level to earnestly use this recent new voters registration to register and get the PVC, the parents and guidance should verily ensure that youths under their care are all registered to vote in 2023 general election.

Also, Igboayaka noted that "if Igbo youth will translate their population into PVC, Southeast at least will record over 50 million votes. There is no community in Igbo land that's not up to 15, 000 people. The data shows that there are over 660 autonomous communities in Imo state and each of the community population is over 15, 000 people, making only the Imo population approximately 9.9 million people. The available data shows that only Ndi Imo can produce over 5.5 legible voters if we harness our population," he hinted.

Comrade Igboayaka further advises Ndigbo to beware of political profiteers who, according to him, have launched Charity Foundations, noting that those politicians coming up with Charity Organizations cannot be used as a yardstick to quantify the capacity of leadership.

"The youth shall escape from every mental manipulation from politicians, shun electoral thuggery and violence",  those politicians who have been using the youth for only in political thuggery without a meaningful source of living or gainfully employment should prepare their children to lead the political gangsters in 2023."
