“ That Ohaneze notes particularly that a major political party ( PDP ) by the nomination of our son Peter Obi as the vice presidential candidate has given Ndigbo an opportunity for inclusivity . Ndigbo must seize the moment ;
“ That the presidential candidate of PDP Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has made an avowed commitment to restructuring of the federation and reconfirmed same during his recent visit to the United States in his meetings high -level US officials ;
