The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council , has urged Governors of the South- East to join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The group said it was apparent that the Peoples Democratic Party did not have the region’s best interests at heart , and as such , there was no need for leaders of the zone to continue to work with the main opposition party .
The zonal Secretary General of the group , Mr . Nnabuike Okwu, said this after a virtual meeting with leaders and other critical stakeholders of the region, on Monday .
This call came barely 48 hours after speculations that the Ebonyi State Governor , David Umahi , had concluded plans to dump the PDP and take up membership of the APC .
Okwu said “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, after their consultative virtual meeting , with Igbo leaders and elders , on Monday , has been mandated to start mounting pressure on the South- East governors to abandon their political parties, especially those in the People ’s Democratic Party , to join the mainstream ruling party, the All Progressive Congress , without further delay .
“OYC urges the Governors to defect, because there are no political benefits for the South- East to continue to remain in a political party that has no respect and value for Igbos , except milking their votes during elections through deceitful mediums and fake promises , and manipulative politicians .”
