While attempts are made to ensure that Buhari get the endorsement of Ndigbo in the north, there appears to be disaffection amongst the leadership of Ndigbo in the area over what they described as grand plot by a former National Vice Chairman of PDP, South, Nze Ozichukwu to hijack the Atiku’s campaign in the north.
This development it was gathered has made the Igbo leaders in the area to contemplate endorsement of President Buhari despite the general adoption of Atiku by the parent body of the apex socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo.
