The Igbo apex body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said that the Igbos have not yet decided on which presidential can­didate to support in the February 14 presidential election.

In a statement issued in Enugu yesterday and signed by its recently inaugurated caretaker commit­tee chairman, Chief Ralph Obioha, the body said it was yet to be agreed if Ndigbo should be directed to collectively endorse the presidential candidate of any of the two leading political parties, PDP and APC.

According to the statement, “Since the elected executive of Ohanaeze ceased to func­tion from January 12, 2015 because of the tenure expira­tion and our caretaker com­mittee only inaugurated few days ago, the committee has been in wide and extensive consultation with various or­gans of Ohanaeze.

“These consultations in­clude the Imeobi, the youths and women wings, tradi­tional rulers, Ndi Eze Igbo in Diaspora, Igbo organisations worldwide.

“These consultations have been on since the inauguration of our committee and it will not be long before we will be in a position to issue advice or guidance to Ndigbo on how to vote in the coming elections.”

The statement also noted that Ndigbo are concerned with core issues that affect the generality of the people of the South-East. It highlighted such issues to include “the right to life and property which includes addressing the menace of cattle herds­men which is a national secu­rity matter."
