The National Publicity Secretary of the group, Uche Achi-Okpaga, told Daily Sun, that Ohanaeze would engage all the presidential aspirants on critical issues that affect Igbo people before they decide who Ndigbo would vote for.
Achi-Okpaga specifically mentioned restructuring as a key issue.
“Ohanaeze has been hammering on restructuring and we are resolute about it. We have been clamouring for restructuring.
“And, we have said we will only identify with any candidate who is ready to follow up our case; on restructuring.
