He disclosed this during a conversation with DAILY POST NEWS while urging Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) to accept defeat and prepare ahead of subsequent elections.

In summary, he said’: ” At this point in time, we would not associate with Igbos saying Asiwaju should not be sworn in on May 29 until the tribunal and the Supreme Court decide who becomes the president. Ohanaeze will attend his inauguration and not pick a fight with the President Elect. After due consultations, Ohanaeze decided to caution all stakeholders in the Igbo project to be careful of their utterances and not to portray Igbos as being against Tinubu because the consequences of such actions would fall back on our shoulders and our people who are mainly traders, living outside Igbo speaking states, particularly in Lagos State. The position of Ohanaeze is very clear; we will continue to support whoever INEC declares as the president”.
