Ohanaeze Splits Over Atiku’s Endorsement

Igbo socio-cultural organization has split into factions following the endorsement of Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Atiku was endorsed same day Buhari had visited Anambra and Enugu States, where he commissioned some projects.

Igbo leaders have described the endorsement as a charade.

However, the development has drawn the ire of some other Igbo leaders, especially members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), prompting a media briefing late Thursday night.

Apart from their claims that over 90 percent of the members of Imeobi were not at the meeting, they equally said the power to carry out such endorsement was vested upon the Ohanaeze General Assembly and not the Imeobi.
