Ohuabunwa who is also the current President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria noted with concern that the country was being run in an opaque manner and needed to be redirected for the good of all.
He said it was the right time that people with superior ideas and commitment to turn the country to a prosperous, peaceful and united country, should be allowed to lead Nigeria.

On the issue of power shift to the South-East, Ohaubunwa said, “Every Nigerian who wants unity must support power shift. Igbo Presidency will stop Biafra agitation which asks for equity, fairness and freedom, even other agitations will stop. Igbo are for justice and equity.
“We are not coming with anger and recrimination, but with equity; we need to come out and make Nigeria work. God has put it to my heart to come and contest for the office of the president of Nigeria.
“I am making myself available; it must not be me, but an Igbo of character. Ndigbo must present their best. God has given me the motivation and what it takes to lead Nigeria to get a country that works for everybody. It is not about the South-East, it is about Nigeria.”
