Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the foremost Igbo socio-cultural group, released a statement today urging all Nigerians to brace themselves for a series of remarkable and unexpected occurrences emerging from the ongoing hearings before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, PEPT.
A major organization, Ohanaeze, has raised concern over the public’s high expectations. They have specifically emphasized their discontent with the outcome of the presidential election in 2023.
In a recent statement, the body cautioned that a similar situation could arise in the aftermath of the tribunal’s decision.
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, recently encouraged Nigerians to gird themselves for any unexpected or unusual events that may result from the tribunal judges’ judgment.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo recently highlighted the great confidence surrounding the upcoming 2023 election in a statement. This optimism can be attributed to the implementation of new election laws as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) commitment to guaranteeing a transparent, impartial, and equal electoral process.
The long-awaited deployment of electronic vote transmission was supposed to increase openness and accountability by creating faith in the political process among citizens. The election result has left a great majority of Nigerians disillusioned and depressed, in an unexpected turn of events.
The revered Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the foremost Igbo cultural institution, has issued an important warning to the Nigerian people in the midst of the heightened anticipation around the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal’s judgment. Ohanaeze Ndigbo advises individuals to brace themselves physically and emotionally as they prepare for both unexpected surprises and startling disclosures, keeping a close eye on the potential twists and turns that lie ahead.
In order to shed light on the widespread sadness following the end of the 2023 presidential election, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has underlined the need for resilience and maintaining realistic expectations.
The group is acting to create a more stable and peaceful environment in order to create a sense of serenity as the nation awaits the tribunal’s ruling.
