The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Thursday say it never at time endorsed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar for the forthcoming February election.
He said the endorsement was carried out by friends of Atiku and that of his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi.
Chuks Ibegbu, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the organisation, made the remark in Enugu, during a press briefing, jointly addressed with Chief Emeka Attamah, SA on media to the President-General, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, to mark the second anniversary of the current executive of Ohanaeze.
Some South-East leaders had during a meeting in Enugu, last year, attended by several groups and prominent personalities in the zone, endorsed Atiku.

However, Ibegbu said the endorsement was done by friends of the former Vice President and not Ohanaeze, stressing that the organisation needed to be circumspect, “as our children are in all the political parties.”
