Ohanaeze Ndigbo, an Igbo socio-cultural organisation, claimed on Thursday that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has given politics in Nigeria a new dimension.
Damian Okeke-Ogene, the Vice President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, revealed this on Thursday in Nanka, Orumba North Local Government Area.
Okeke-Ogene remarked, “Obi stands for those who wish to enthrone a new political and social order that would end the recycling of leadership,” while speaking to the executive of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Anambra State chapter in his hometown.
He also expressed disappointment for the South-East governors’ failure to establish a united front in both the PDP and the APC on the election of a candidate.

“The unexpected emergence of Mr Peter Obi as the Labour Party’s presidential candidate has added a new dimension to Nigeria politics,” Okeke-Ogene stated.
“He is a contender who has received widespread national and international support.” This is not due to the fact that the president is of Igbo descent or that the presidency is rotated, nor is it due to ethnic or religious considerations. Rather, it is because of Obi’s support for people who want to establish a new political and social order that will put an end to the leadership cycle that has become a burden for Nigerians.
“His rise has sparked a mass movement that will have a comparable, if not greater, impact than the End SARS Protest, since people perceive in him a candidate who can build a new Nigeria by defending progressive ideology that is not dependent on tribe, religion, or political leaning.”
“The political establishment in the South-east thwarted Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s efforts to champion Igbo extraction for the presidency.
“It’s unfortunate to observe that all of the delegates at the conventions were more or less controlled by the leadership of their respective political parties, which was reflected in their voting patterns and was a slap in the face to the South East’s aspirations.”
