Ohanaeze Ndigbo Reacts To Peter Obi’s Meeting With Atiku, Kwankwaso, Others



Ohaneze Ndigbo

Pan-Igbo organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has reacted to Peter Obi’s recent meeting with political stakeholders from northern Nigeria.

Obi; the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in the last presidential election, had a meeting with Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other party bigwigs.
The meeting has been tagged a potential opposition party alignment aimed at unseating President Tinubu in 2027.
Reacting to the meeting, the group advised Obi to be careful and not be deceived into allying with the northern power brokers.
Ohanaeze urged the former governor of Anambra State to apply wisdom noting that past experiences between mergers with southeast politicians and northern elites should teach him a lesson.

In a statement issued on Thursday, May 16, by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Igbo group said that Obi’s participation in Muslim ceremonies in recent times has been perceived as steps to fortify his political stature in the North ahead of the 2027 polls.

“Observers have closely monitored the subtle political trajectory of Mr Obi over the past nine months, particularly in the core North-West and North-East regions, where he has strategic humanitarian initiatives with political intentions to garner broader northern acceptance and articulate his vision for the upcoming presidential elections.
“The Northern political establishment, religious scholars, and traditional institutions harbour reservations towards Mr Obi for several notable reasons,” the statement said.
It will be recalled that after the closed-door meeting, Obi said they discussed the state of the nation and how to reduce Nigerians’ suffering.
