The Biafra Nation’s Youth League, BNYL, has cautioned the apex Igbo political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and other bodies in the South East against endorsing President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, or any other presidential candidate, ahead of the forthcoming election.

Ohanaeze had over the weekend disclosed that it will back any presidential candidate that was sincere in restructuring Nigeria.

However, the National Leader of the movement, Princewill Chimezie Richard warned of an “impending consequences” if Igbo bodies endorse political candidates.

A statement he forwarded to DAILY POST reads: “We have no preferred Presidential candidate, and no meaningful Igbo group or any other ethnic based group in the East should have a candidate in the Presidential race. An Organization like Ohanaeze should leave partisan politics, it is a disrespect to the Igbo.

“What Ohanaeze should be doing is to be backing their own to represent what they stand for which is the interest of the Igbo.

“But whether Atiku has chosen Igbo as his running mate, or Buhari is considering appointing an Igbo person as IGP shouldn’t be an excuse for backing any of the two, because it is the same northerners that we are dealing with”.

BNYL also maintained its position not to boycott election in the South East and South South.

“The choice to vote or not rest with the people, it is a political rights and not by the use of force.

“Election boycott will be more meaningful only when there is total compliance”, the statement added.
