The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo yesterday could not muster the necessary number to endorse President Goodluck Jonathan for re-election in 2015.

Speaking with newsmen, Senator Chris Ngige, representing Anambra central senatorial zone said,'we have agreed to insulate Ohaneze from partisan politics.

'We will support no presidential candidate. We will be neutral because Ohaneze is made of people from diverse political parties. People who belong to parties should go their parties and canvass for their own candidates. They can talk to Nigerians from their own political parties and not from Ohanaeze.

'They will be doing so from the standpoint of their party and not from Ohanaeze. The endorsement will not be obtainable. That is our agreement.'
