Ohaneze Youth congratulates South-East Govs-elect, cautions against litigation

The Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Wing on Thursday congratulated Governors-elect in the South-East and urged them to fulfill their campaign promises.

President of the group, Mr Arthur Obiorah, gave the advice in a Congratulatory message made available to newsmen on Thursday in Onitsha.

Obiorah urged candidates who lost in the elections to accept the outcome in good fate and avoid unnecessary litigation.

“We congratulate the governors of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi; Abia, Okezie Ikpeazu; Delta, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa and Ebonyi, Mr David Umahi on their re-elections.

“We also congratulate the new Imo Governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha on his victory.


“The governors-elect should give more political appointments to the youths because they are the bedrock of meaningful development in any promising society.

“Those who lost at the polls should not go into unnecessary litigations, but see the outcome of the elections as true reflection of the people’s political decision,” Obiorah said.

He expressed worry over the declaration of the governorship election in six states by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as inconclusive.

Obiorah, who described the development as “worrisome,” said the situation in Rivers called for proper investigation of the roles of some security agents in the election.

He also urged INEC and security agencies to ensure due process in conducting all inconclusive elections in a bid to strengthen the nation’s democratic principles.
