A group identified as Coalition Of Youths in Anambra State have asked the presidential candidate of the Labour party, Mr Peter Obi to stepdown from his presidential ambition in 2023 if he truly loves the Igbo region.

This is according to the National Leader of the coalition, Dr. Chinedu Ekwealor,in an interaction with newsmen in Akwa on Monday.

He said that Peter Obi who was the former Anambra state governor cannot claim to love Ndigbo if he cannot consider the interest of the people ahead of his personal ambition.

According to Ekwealor, Obi should step down and strategies for future elections as his present ambition will only deny the Ndigbo the presidential seat for a long time.

Speaking further, Ekwealor said Peter Obi, Ohaneze Ndigbo as well as all the prominent people in the South-East should begin to push for a new narrative for the Igbo nation in the forthcoming presidential election, and secure bankable negotiations for Igbo political renaissance.

According to Ekwealor Obi’s entry into the Presidential race would spoil the chances of Ndigbo becoming the president after 2023 without proper alliance with other ethnic groups.

He noted that Obi’s continued interest into the presidential race is giving an advantage to one of the leading parties, All Progressives Congress (APC), to win the election in 2023.

“Our brother, Peter Obi, does not have this alliance and knows very well that an irate social media mob does not, and cannot, make him president.

“Obi’s presidential run is sabotage to Ndigbo. What he has only succeeded in doing is increasing APC’s chances of winning the election by depleting the votes of the Southeast for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“The implication is that the South Easterners will have to stay out of power for a minimum of another 16 years.

“This is because after Tinubu (if he wins), power will return to the North for another eight years, leaving Ndigbo out for another 16 solid years.

“If Obi truly loves Ndigbo, he should step down forthwith and strategise with other well-meaning Igbo elite in charting a way forward for the Igbo nation.

“We repeat, the presidency is not won on the premise of wishful thinking and hullabaloo of an untamed mob, who probably do not even understand the need for a pathway for the Igbo nation, pushing for a new narrative for the Igbo nation.”
