Ohanaeze faction backs anti-open grazing law, power shift



A faction of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has backed the decision of the Southern governors on anti-open grazing, noting that it is in line with the collective aspiration of Southern and Middle Belt Nigerians.

It expressed the belief that the decision would end the farmers-herders crisis and birth to modernised ranches across the country.


In a statement in Abakaliki yesterday, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo faction, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, further noted that the southern governors’ forum resolution on 2023 and avowal on Southern Presidency put the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the spot.

According to him, the reinforcement of the collective bargaining of Ndigbo to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 is the major responsibility of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, adding that the decision of the governors put Ndigbo in the front to produce Buhari’s successor.


He said the political will to ignore Buhari’s insistence on opening grazing routes across the country and the pronunciation of the deadline for anti-grazing laws by Southern governors were laudable.

Isiguzoro called on Igbo presidential hopefuls to boldly commence consultative outreach programmes across the country and keep the hopes alive for the 2023 Igbo Presidency Project.

“Igbo Presidency is the most equitable and justified project that Nigerians will gainfully embrace in 2023, as there is nothing to lose if an Igbo succeeds Buhari in 2023,” he added.
