The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has disowned a member of the All Progressives Congress in Ebonyi State, Charles Enya, who is seeking an amendment of the Constitution to allow President Muhammadu Buhari get another term in office.
The youth wing of the pan Igbo group, in collaboration with its parent body Ohanaeze Ndigbo, commended President Buhari for outrightly denouncing the third term agenda.
In a statement on Friday by the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the group said the move was unconstitutional and parochial.
“We dismiss the report credited to Charles Enya, an Igbo APC chieftain, seeking for the third term for the President and governors through constitutional amendment as idiotic, unconstitutional and parochial. As Igbos, we disown such immature moves as un-Igbo and huge joke.
“As it stands now with support from Middle belt youths and Niger Delta youths leaders championing the zoning of the presidency to South-East in 2023, the coast is clear for any Igbo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.”
