Call Your Supporters In The North To Order – Ohanaeze Youths To Buhari • Vows To Retaliate Further Attacks On Jonathan

Isiguzoro Okechukwu

The youth wing of the pan Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo, has strongly condemned the recent attacks on President Goodluck Jonathan’s convoy during his presidential campaign in Katsina and Bauchi states.

The National President of Ohaneze Youth Council, Mr. Okechukwu Isiguzoro, who decried the separate incidents yesterday in Umuahia, Abia State, warned that Igbo youths would use their votes as a reprisal weapon against any attack on Jonathan.

Isiguzoro said any attack on Jonathan would henceforth be considered an “attack against Ohaneze youths because we have adopted him as our consensus Presidential candidate, and we will use our votes to retaliate by voting against those behind the attacks”.

He said the attacks portrayed grave danger to Nigeria’s unity and democracy, alleging that “sponsors of Boko Haram are now behind those throwing stones and water sachet at Mr. President”.

This, he said, “shows the desperation of those who are hell bent on thwarting Nigeria’s democracy”.

The Ohaneze youth leader also called on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), to call his supporters in the North to order.

Isiguzoro said Buhari could not be trusted with the security of Nigeria if he could not control his own supporters.

Isiguzoro further called on all Igbos in the North to be vigilant and defend themselves against electoral violence, warning that Ohaneze youths would no longer tolerate wanton destruction of lives and property of their kinsmen in the North as a result of electoral violence.


  1. U dat sit der talking rubbish, mind ur language. U can’t speak on behalf of Ndigbo. If u went 2 Jonathan nd collect money nd is d reason u are trying 2 put all other Igbos in trouble, u are on ur own. B’cos Igbo man can sale his right, his family, his brother all b’cos of money.

  2. Mazi Isiuguru or whatever you call yourself pls don’t drag Ohaneze into war. Who gave you the authority to speak for umuigbo? Pls let PDP and APC fight their fight because none of their presidential candidate is from Igbo land. I warned you. (Ebekuodike)

  3. Isiguzoro or whatever he calls himself is merely speaking for himself and not Igbo youths.The likes of Isiguzoro are causig more harm to the Igbos with reckless utterances.He does not know that he is inciting Hausas against his igbo brothers.Enough of this psychophancy.Is Jonathan his father?How can u cry more than the bereaved?
