End your romance with Wike — Ohanaeze advises G-5 governors

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has advised Governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State to end their romance with Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike.

The group’s National President, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said in a statement on Friday that the advice was necessary to avoid regrets.

Okwu stated that the two governors, who are running for political office in their respective states, would be doing themselves a great disservice by endorsing a candidate from another political party.

He said: “Governor Ugwuanyi is an asset we will need in the Senate as he has the experience needed to attract federal presence to the State. However, should Wike lure them into endorsing another presidential candidate, it could backfire and cost him the ticket. It will be a political doom.

“We have it on good authority that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, national leadership has concluded plans not just to expel the governors from the party, but to dissolve their State executives.

“This should not be taken for granted as it would totally destabilise them and come with huge and avoidable electoral loss.

“What happened to the AD in 2003 should be a lesson to the governors, when the party endorsed then President Obasanjo of the PDP and the AD ended up losing every other position.”
