2023: Ohanaeze  youths  backs southern  GOVernors stand  on Zoning of presidency, demands power shift to the Southeast

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC,Has supported  the southern Nigeria Governors over their stand on open grazing and  zoning of the 2023 presidency, as well as electronic transmission of votes.

Hailing the governors for maintaining their stand on open grazing,  the council stressed on the  need for them not to compromise their stand as so many people are watching as the September deadline has been set. 

Speaking to journalists on the friday,  the President-General of the OYC, Mazi Okwu said that  the decision of the governors was apt and in the best interest of Nigerians.

“They said, “we back the southern Governors on ban on open grazing , they should not be intimidated by anyone, as this is the only way to secure our people against murderous herdsmen” 


“the people are watching as the September deadline has been set. There should be no compromise; they should not be intimidated by anyone, as this is the only way to secure our people against murderous herdsmen. 

“We are also delighted with your stand on zoning of the presidency in 2023. However, we ask that it should be microzoned to the South-East, as it remains the only region yet to have a shot at the presidency in the entire Southern Nigeria. 

“We  align ourselves with the decision of the governors on  electronic transmission of results; in fact, it should start from the governorship election in Anambra State this year”

“Nigerians have been engaging in all manner of electronic registration, including the NIN, voters registration, among others; we see no reason anyone should be scared of electronic transmission of election results, only the guilty are afraid. 

“So, we urge the Senate not to delay in returning that provision to the Electoral Act, as anything short of that would be unacceptable.”

“We are also delighted with their stand on zoning of the presidency in 2023. However, we ask that it should be microzoned to the South-East, as it remains the only region yet to have a shot at the presidency in the entire Southern Nigeria. 
The  youths therefore  adviced everyone  to show full participation in the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration as it is a golden opportunity to right the wrongs we inflicted on ourselves in the past. 

“The various agitating groups should not stop people from taking part in that exercise, as even referendums require one form of identification or the other. 

“We call on the IPOB, the MASSOB, BIM, Zionists to allow their members take part in the exercise; they should please key into this,” the group pleaded.
