The Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide has stated that the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s presidency is not destined to come to pass in 2023.

The apex Igbo group congratulated Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress as the winner and President-elect of the presidential election held on Saturday, February 25, 2023.

Ambassador Tony Obizoba, Director General, Implementation and Strategic Planning, Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, revealed this in a statement on Sunday, March 5, 2023.

Ohanaeze also expressed confidence in Tinubu as a capable democrat who can continue the great feats of President Muhammadu Buhari, when he assumes office on 29th May, 2023.

Speaking on Obi’s hard work and fate at the presidential poll, it said, “This Igbo umbrella body will continue to remember Obi, former Governor of Anambra State, as one who, despite all odds, laboured hard to actualise a Nigerian President from the Igboland. However, God has not destined it to happen in 2023. "It may happen later. God spares the life of everybody.”
