Ohanaeze Denies Endorsing Any Candidate For Anambra Polls

APGA Chairman Victor Oye and Governor Willie Obiano

Ohanaeze Ndigbo has denied supporting any candidate for the forthcoming governorship election scheduled for November 18th in Anambra State.

The group made this known through its Assistant National Publicity Secretary, Chuke Ibegbu, while briefing the leadership of Igbo Mandate Congress.

Ibegbu said: ”The President General and members of National Executive Committee are concerned about free polls in Anambra State.

”Ohanaeze has within its fold members of all political parties and as such cannot come out openly to support any candidate.

”However, it reserves the right to give direction to the Igbo race if the need arises and that direction can come through the President General.

”Therefore anyone purportedly supporting any candidate without the clearance from Ohaneze NEC is only seeking for financial aggrandizement”

On groups claiming affiliation to Ohanaeze Ndigbo and collecting funds from the APGA Campaign Office, Ibegbu said such groups except one, is neither known to Ohanaeze Ndigbo nor got any clearance from the President General.

”Ohanaeze will make known its stance on Anambra elections any moment from next week but the stance will still be that Anambra people will be allowed to vote the candidature of their choice,” he added.
