The Association of Igbo Town Unions (ASETU) has explained why they have yet to make a decision on which presidential candidate they will support in the 2023 election.
The group stated that their silence is due to their desire to allow Nigerians all over the world to make informed decisions free of tribal or other cheap considerations.
The group, in a communique issued following a meeting in Enugu and signed by the National President, Chief Emeka Diwe, urged Nigerians not to approach the upcoming presidential election with tribal sentiments, but rather to evaluate presidential candidates based on their integrity, justice, equity, track record, and deliverable ability.
The communique said;
The Town Unions thank the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for adopting the Voters Accreditation System (BVAs).
The umbrella body of all Igbo in Nigeria and diaspora, is of the view that if the system is well-managed by INEC, it will go a long way in reducing rigging, over voting, ballot box stuffing and carting away, including checking other electoral fraud.
Also, Igbo Town Unions observed with appreciation the unusual patriotic zeal of Nigeria youths with which they pursue the collective goal of taking back Nigeria from those who have held it captive for many years.
The association also urged the Federal Government to prove that they are truly abiding by the rule of law and release the proscribed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
