On Sunday, a group led by Okechukwu Isiguzoro, a member of the main Igbo socio-cultural organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo, said that a military intervention into Nigeria would be prevented if the North did not give its approval.
While making this assertion, the organization also warned President Bola Tinubu of impending risks.
Ohanaeze forewarned Tinubu that the recent coup waves in some Francophone African countries are warnings over the continuous declaration of fraudulent election results in Africa, bad governments, lack of respect for the constitution by political elites, and the imposition of geriatric African Presidents by the West.
The Northern leadership and political leaders are dissatisfied with Tinubu’s Presidency and are waiting patiently for the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal verdict on September 16th, 2023, to know their line of action,” according to a statement released by Ohanaeze factional Secretary-General Okechukwu Isiguzoro.
If what Isiguzoro says is true, “the Northern leadership shut down President Tinubu’s led ECOWAS planned invasion of Niger Republic through the Northern Senators, the traditional rulers, and their elder statesmen who are unhappy with the President’s style of leadership and key appointments to the Southwest.”
Ohanaeze also lauded the Nigerian armed forces for their unwavering support of Tinubu and their commitment to preserving Nigerian democracy.
