The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council are very angry and the source of their fury is the APC Chieftain Charles Enya Congressmanof Ebonyi State, Charles Enya.
The latter had claimed to have started the paperwork seeking an amendment of the constitution that would allow President Muhammadu Buhari to get another term in office.
The youth wing of the pan Igbo group has now in collaboration with its parent body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, first of all, commended President Buhari for denouncing the third term agenda outright but also blasted the Chieftain for being a political saboteur. They have vowed to disown him and shun him moving forward.
In a statement by the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group said the move was unconstitutional and parochial
. Isiguzoro shared, “We dismiss the report credited to Charles Enya, an Igbo APC chieftain, seeking for the third term for the President and governors through constitutional amendment as idiotic, unconstitutional and parochial. As Igbos, we disown such immature moves as un-Igbo and a huge joke.
“As it stands now with support from Middle belt youths and Niger Delta youths leaders championing the zoning of the presidency to South-East in 2023, the coast is clear for any Igbo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We still insist that Igbo politicians should massively defect to the APC to have a political balance in Igbo land, APC holds the key for the future of the Igbo people in 2023. We urge the governors of the old eastern region to see the handwriting on the wall and the collapse PDP in the region.’’
