Has Ohanaeze begun any mobili­zation for a candidate that it thinks will have the interest of Ndigbo in 2015?

We have not mobilised Ndigbo towards a candidate, but we have mobilised Ndigbo by asking them to register en masse dur­ing the electoral registration exercise. Recently, we were in the North asking all the leaders of the organisations and all the Igbo to stay where they reside and register there so as to enable them to vote. Finally, all Igbo will be ready for an election after we conclude consultations with the major Igbo stakeholders and Ohanaeze will take a stand on the candidate we should sup­port. We did that in 2010/11 and the Igbo supported President Goodluck Jonathan en masse. We can’t make any pronounce­ment now because we have not finalised our consultations. We are following the trend. When the consultations are con­cluded, Imeobi will sit to take a decision. Once the general assembly takes a deci­sion, the President General will make it known. Then Ndigbo should vote for the person during the presidential election. For the state elections, Ohanaeze Ndigbo will not take a decision because anybody who will arise next in the state is an Ohanaeze person and they are all our sons and daugh­ters. We don’t take stands on states, local governments or even the Senate. They are basically Igbo, but at the national level, the Igbo will take a decision and back one can­didate en masse.
