Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has described the recent statement by the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus that the 2023 presidential ticket is open to all as an affront against Igbo.
The youth wing of the apex Igbo organisation said that the statement showed that PDP has no regards for Igbo.
OYC pointed out that the Igbo had been loyal to the PDP for the past 21 years.
OYC, however, said the PDP National Working Committee, NWC, led by Secondus should be commended for responding to the 7 days ultimatum given to PDP to respond on the alleged plot to deny Igbos the party’s presidential ticket come 2023.
In a statement signed by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, President General and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, Secretary General, the group said “It is unimaginable mistake and mischievous decision to see Igbo unworthy to fly PDP presidential ticket in 2023.
