Ohaneze Ndigbo has blasted Abdurrahman Sumaila, a former aide to President Muhammadu Buhari for saying that “no right-thinking Nigerian will support an Igbo presidential candidate in 2023.”
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Sumaila in a statement on Thursday, accused the Igbo of destroying national infrastructures, adding that no one from the group is fit enough to lead the country.
He had said, “With the atrocities committed by South-East people on the record, how can Nigerians entrust them to govern them?
“I am sure not a single right-thinking Nigerian will endanger his life to support the candidature of any South-East politician contesting for presidency come 2023 general elections.”
Reacting, the spokesman for Ohanaeze, Alex Ogbonnia, told The Punch that Sumaila’s statement was childish.
Ogbonnia said, “Ohanaeze will not take issues with the ex-presidential aide.”
