Ohanaeze Ndigbo in South-Africa Solicits Free & Fair Elections in Enugu



Ahead of next month’s general elections, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo in South-Africa, yesterday, said it had commenced a door-to-door campaign aimed at ensuring that elections in Enugu State were credible.
The leader of Ndigbo in South-Africa and Patron, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Enugu State, Chief Mike Urama, who briefed journalists in Enugu, after a reception organised for them by Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Enugu State chapter, said the door-to-door campaign would stamp-out political and voter apathy, political thuggery, electoral malpractice and violence.
He said they were determined to fight victimisation, discrimination and marginalisation of voters on the basis of gender, religion, ethnicity and the likes.
While calling for the quick resolution of the lingering crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over the choice of its governorship candidate, he said the Ohanaeze Ndigbo in South-Africa decided to support Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi after a credible assessment of all the aspirants.
The group commended the PDP for the transparent conduct of its governorship primaries, noting that “this show of uncommon understanding and solidarity is unequalled and unparalleled. It is indeed a practical demonstration of cohesiveness that exists with the party.”
He stated that the Gburugburu International Support Foundation, South-Africa, which according to him, had over 1.5 million membership strength, “is committed in support of Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and had long ago been gathering support for him because of his outstanding virtues in expanding the frontiers of excellence.
“If you move around Enugu State and have interaction with all manner of residents, the artisans, drivers, traders, civil servants, professionals, they are all clamouring for Ugwuanyi.
