The Group, however, charged President Mohammadu Buhari to appoint an Igbo man to replace the Vice President Yemi Osibanjo as the best way to balance the power equation in the country if he’s guilty of any constitutional breach.

In his words “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide have observed that the current plot to cleanse the office of the Vice President, through the alleged relocating of V.P’s aides, constituting of Economic Advisory committee ahead of Economic Management Team chaired by the Vice President Yemi Osibanjo and the alleged memo directly Him to seek approval from the Office of the President on issues before engaging as a prompt action to curtail the political activities of 2023 of South West, through the use of the office of the Vice President as a lunching platform as advantage ahead of other political permutations.

“It’s obvious that the quiet rift in Presidency is geared towards putting up a political tsunami capable of truncating the partnership between the North and the South West, and possibly bring in a New alliance ahead of time for peaceful transition to other regions probably the South East, we urge all the actors and stakeholders to replace Osibanjo with an Igbo man as the best way to balance the power equation in the country, if he’s guilty of any constitutional breach.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide will start lobbying for the possible replacement of the current occupant of the Vice President with an Igbo man, since such will balance the power equation, with the North having President and Senate President, and South West occupying the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and both parties (APC and PDP) leadership are in the South/South, its time to have an Igbo man as Vice President as the replacement of Vice President if he’s found guilty of any constitutional breach.”
