We Are Not Going To Congratulate Tinubu – Ohanaeze Speaks.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex socio-political organization of the Igbo people, has stated that it will not congratulate President-elect Bola Tinubu until the court process has been concluded. The national Vice President of Ohanaeze, Damian Okeke-Ogene, explained that they cannot recognize Tinubu as the President-elect until the court process has been completed.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, Mr. Okeke-Ogene expressed his organization’s stance on the matter. “Ohanaeze is not in a hurry to recognize Tinubu as the President-elect because any house built on a faulty foundation is bound to collapse,” he said. He further added, “We believe that the process of the 2023 presidential election is still ongoing. The voting has been completed, and the court has taken over. Until the outcome of the court process is known, we cannot take a stance on the 2023 election.”

The outcome of the February 25 presidential election is currently being contested at the Presidential Election Tribunal by Labour Party’s Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP. Messrs Obi and Abubakar are arguing that Mr. Tinubu was not duly nominated by APC and that electoral body INEC contravened its own laws in returning the APC candidate as president-elect.

Meanwhile, preparations are ongoing for the handover of power to Mr. Tinubu and his deputy, Kashim Shettima, on May 29. However, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has refused to join the bandwagon of those congratulating Tinubu until the court process has been concluded. The organization’s stance reflects the need to uphold the rule of law and ensure that justice prevails.
