Osinbajo and Tinubu should drop out of the presidential race in 2023, according to Ohanaeze.


Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, a non-partisan Igbo socio-cultural organization, has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to withdraw from the 2023 presidential race.

Chief Alex Ogbonnia, Ohanaeze National Publicity Secretary, revealed this in an exclusive interview with The Punch, citing reasons why politicians should not run for the presidency.

"I had written an open letter to Tinubu before, which I'm sure he must have read," Ogbonnia explained, "reminding him that at one point he had been the conscience of the nation with his truthful disposition." But, because of his ambition, he has recently chosen not to speak even when things are dire. 

Tinubu used to talk about equity, justice, and fairness, but in recent years, he has chosen to become someone entirely different.

I advised him not to contest the election. He should rather be regarded as a Nigerian elder statesman. 

Above all, in Nigeria, there is a zoning and rotation principle, and it is the turn of the South-East. Then there's Osinbajo, who has a very tall credential, having served as Vice-President, he's supposed to be an elder statesman. 

His profile contradicts his decision to run for president because he understands that the South-West will not be represented. He has demonstrated that he prioritizes his own interests over the interests of the nation."
