No Force Can Stop Your Swearing In, Weâ€™ll Support You â€“ Ohanaeze To Tinubu

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Ime-Obi, on Saturday, declared that no force on earth will stop the swearing-in of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu on May 29.
Ime-Obi, which is Ohanaezeâ€™s highest decision-making body, said the organization would give Tinubu the maximum support towards ensuring that his administration succeeds.
It was reacting to a faction of the Ohanaeze that it would not recognize Tinubu as the President-elect over his refusal to include Igbos in his transition committee.
Speaking through the Ohanaezeâ€™s Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the body stressed that it recognizes Tinubu as the President-elect of Nigeria and would support him after his inauguration. Chatting with DAILY POST, Isiguzoro said:
â€œSome people are making an unauthorized statement that they donâ€™t recognize Tinubu as the president-elect, but let me make it categorically clear that those statements are coming from unpatriotic elements that have been suspended from the Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
â€œOhanaeze will participate fully in the inauguration of the President-elect.
Itâ€™s unpatriotic for anyone to use the name of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to say that a man who was declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election would not be recognized by Ndigbo.
â€œNdigbo fully recognizes the president-elect, Vice President-elect, Shettima and we will continue to give them maximum support until a court of competent jurisdiction says otherwise.
â€œWe will not allow people who made Ndigbo enemies of Buhari in 2015 to lead us into another tight situation where Igbos will be portrayed illegitimately that we are against or will not recognize the President-elect, which is not the position of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
â€œNdigbo are progressive-minded, economically oriented and would continue to support any government at the centre.
â€œThose trying to pick quarrels on behalf of Ndigbo against Tinubu will not succeed because we are partaking in the inauguration at the Eagles Square, and there is no force on earth that would stop the President-elect from being sworn in.
â€œTinubu should not listen to those not speaking on behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, we will continue to support and give him maximum support and ensure that his government succeeds.
â€œThe Ime-Obi Ohanaeze has never authorized anybody to speak against the President-elect.
Ime-Obi has fully identified and would support whoever won the presidential election.
â€œOhanaeze is not an enemy to the president-elect and would not allow anybody to make an unfounded statement that Ohanaeze does not recognize Tinubu.â€
