He said, “We did not have anything against the party’s presidential candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu and in his running mate. We have only against the party’s system.

“Our group was formed in 2014 and we played active roles in its success in 2015 and 2019. But we decided to dissociate ourselves from the party’s campaign activities now because of the way they are treating the youths.”

A coalition of youths in Anambra State has asked the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, to bury his ambition, if he truly loves Igbo.

They said his entry into the race would spoil the chances of Ndigbo becoming the president after 2023 without proper alliance with other ethnic groups.

Briefing reporters yesterday in Awka, Anambra State, the National Leader of the coalition, Dr. Chinedu Ekwealor, said Obi’s entry into the presidential race was to give an advantage to one of the leading parties, All Progressives Congress (APC), to win the election.

The group said: “Our brother, Peter Obi, does not have this alliance and knows very well that an irate social media mob does not, and cannot, make him president.

“Obi’s presidential run is sabotage to Ndigbo. What he has only succeeded in doing is increasing APC’s chances of winning the election by depleting the votes of the Southeast for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“The implication is that the South Easterners will have to stay out of power for a minimum of another 16 years.

“This is because after Tinubu (if he wins), power will return to the North for another eight years, leaving Ndigbo out for another 16 solid years.

“If Obi truly loves Ndigbo, he should step down forthwith and strategise with other well-meaning Igbo elite in charting a way forward for the Igbo nation.

“We repeat, the presidency is not won on the premise of wishful thinking and hullabaloo of an untamed mob, who probably do not even understand the need for a pathway for the Igbo nation, pushing for a new narrative for the Igbo nation.”
