The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Saturday pointed out qualities people of the South East should vote for in the forthcoming February presidential election.
Chuks Ibegbu, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the organisation said Ohanaeze will vote for any candidate who believes in the restructuring of Nigeria.
Ibegbu said Nigeria was in dire need of restructuring because the current set up of Nigeria doesn’t favour people of the South East.
According to Ibegbu: “We have always emphasized on the restructuring of Nigeria that the country as it’s presently constituted cannot work. We need to restructure the country, physical, structural and political restructuring. It’s only these that will open up the dormant energy in the country.
“The Igbo, in particular, perform well when there is a level playing ground, as it is now our energies are bottled up they can’t perform because the country is against them.
“So our position is that whoever will restructure Nigeria, open up the latent and hidden capacities of Nigeria that is the person we will support. If Buhari is ready to turn a new leaf and restructure Nigeria we will embrace him for another four years and if Atiku is genuinely committed to restructuring Nigeria we will support him.
“If Ezekwesili, Hashim and other presidential candidates are ready to restructure Nigeria, we will support them.”
