… Calling Handshake Across The Niger A Spurious Event
… Ask Buhari To Caution Femi Adeshina
The National Deputy Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo World wide Chuks Ibegbu has lambasted the Presidential spokesman Femi Adeshina for tagging the just concluded Handshake across the Niger at Enugu as a spurious exercise
Ibegbu wondered how Adesina came to this annoying conclusion over a programme that was very welcomed and highly successful.
It was either that Adesina was out for a mischief or he was not well informed on the purpose of the event attended by leaders of the entire South , middle belt and even some progressives from the core north.
Chuks Ibegbu cautioned President Mohammadu Buhari to rein in Femi Adesina over some of his embarrassing outbursts.
In another vein the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Barr Nnia Nwodo has stated that Ohanaeze Ndigbo has not sent Fulani herdsmen packing from Igbo land as some elements that purport to be Ohanaeze Youth leaders claimed in a recent write up. Rather , Ohanaeze Ndigbo will not tolerate any killing , maiming or destruction of lives and properties of our people and farmers by any armed Fulani herdsman. Peaceful herdsmen who obey the laws of Igbo states can do their legitimate business, but there will not be any cattle colony in Igbo land or grazing grounds., he warned. Ohanaeze Ndigbo also encourage our people to massively go into animal husbandry as Dr M I Okpara did in the past when the former Eastern region was self sufficient in animal protein. This he noted will help check the armed herdsmen frequent attacks and mayhem in the East and other parts of the country.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo has also warned those who purport to be Youths of the body to desist from making unauthorized statements on behalf of the body as it is only the President General, the publicity unit or any officer mandated to do so that can speak on its behalf, Ibegbu noted..
Meanwhile , two groups , the WORLD IGBO LEADERSHIP , EDUCATION AND CULTURAL COUNCIL, WILECC and the IGBO INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION NETWORK, IICON which held the WORLD IGBO INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP RETREAT recently at Abagana in Anambra state will be holding the WORLD IGBO LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL COLLOQUIUM in the last week of January in honor of the departed Igbo leader and Nigerian icon Dr Alex Ekwueme , former Nigeria Vice President.
