3 shortlisted as Nwodo’s Replacement as Ohanaeze President
New President General emerges on Wednesday
We, the members of Ohanaeze Youth Wing, OYW having been part of the interactive meeting of some respectable Igbo elders, leaders of thought, captains of industries and intelligentsias held today, at Enugu, as earlier-on scheduled with sole agenda SAVE OHANAEZE NDIGBO were mandated to brief the public on the outcome.
The Igbo leaders at the meeting unanimously agreed that Ohanaeze Ndigbo has been grossly misrepresented and turned into a political party by the estranged President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo and without equivocation accepted that it is a bounden Igbo cultural duty to not only salvage Ohanaeze Ndigbo but re-strategize and reposition Ohanaeze Ndigbo, for the return of Igbo cultural nationalism championed by the likes of Pa. Nnamdi Azikiwes, M. I. Okparas, Eze Akanu Ibiams, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwus, and the likes of distinguished Ohanaeze Ndigbo emblematic leaders Justice Ozobus, Prof Ben Nwabueze, Chief Mbazuluike Amaechis, Dr. Dozie Ikedifes, Chief Ralph Obiohas, et al.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo Enugu parley, also bemoaned the present Ohanaze Ndigbo charade leadership led by Nnia Nwodo saying that it was because of its political ineptitudes that the Igbo are currently missing in the political leadership and radar of Nigerian politics and thereby, agreed to not only sanitize but constitute a National Steering Committee, Ohanaeze Ndigbo to be constituted before the end of the week.
Three persons already shortlisted for Nnia Nwodo’s replacement are:
- Prince Richard Ozobu,
- Sir OAU Onyema and,
- Prof Eche Ugwu;
who are verily tested products of tradition. And by Wednesday 18th April 2018,one of them will emerge as President General at Government house Owerri
Ohanaeze expanded Igbo leaders Enugu parley also directed that Chief Nnia Nwodo to honourably resign from Ohanaeze Ndigbo presidency for easy change of guards in Ohanaeze Ndigbo since he has failed woefully dividing and estranging Igbos than unites or will be forceful ejected through legal means.
Other agreements reached includes vote of confidence passed on the leadership of the Ohanaeze Youth and Women wings respectively led by Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and Chief Calista Adimachukwu and condemned Nwodo’s kangaroo slated elections since there are no leadership vacuum in both wings of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
We are aware of Nwodo visit to Awka Government house on a demand for the government to give him candidate for Ohanaeze Youth president and the monies that exchanged hands.
Also, an order for Nwodo to stop playing politics of raking monies with Biafra and her heroes and martyrs since he cannot kill with the spirits by the night and come to funeral with the humans by the day – his play to gallery speeches at Col. Joe Achizia’s recent funeral, referred; which was antithetical to his anti-Biafra agitation stance and restructure Nigeria blues.
There would be more revelations and actions in the coming weeks since the Ohanaeze Enugu parley are still meeting and agreed to consult widely to save Ohanaeze Ndigbo from Nnia Nwodo’s iron greedy grip.
We are not in a hurry on the Mission: Yes! Ohahaeze Ndigbo, afresh in our minds!
