The national president of Ohanaeze Youth Council(OYC), the apex Igbo socio-cultural youth body of Ohanaeze Ndigbo have accused the outgoing President-General of the parent body, Chief Nnia Nwodo of deepening the crisis rocking the organization.
Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka lambasted Nwodo over what he described as “his greed and political desperation to sell Ohanaeze Ndigbo to South East governors.”
Addressing newsmen in Owerri, Imo state on Jan. 5, 2021, the OYC president noted that Nwodo was gambling with the upcoming Ohanaeze Ndigbo election and has soiled the little reputation he had in the past, adding that he was the first president of Ohanaeze that contravened four different constitutional provisions of the organization which according to him, are Article 11, Article 10, Article 14 and Article 21.
“The poor leadership, greed and ego of Nwodo led him not to reconcile with Bar. Uche Okwukwu the Secretary General of the organization whom Nwodo and his PDP cliques in Ohanaeze came against him when he(Uche Okwukwu) rejected the endorsement of Atiku Abubakar as the consensus presidential candidate of Ndigbo,” Igboayaka stated.
Igboayaka also recalled that Chief Nwodo’s plans was to sell Ohanaeze Ndigbo to PDP cliques in exchange of his vice presidential ambition; a counter ambition to Igbo’s agitation to produce the next president of Nigeria.
“Nnia Nwodo is an agent of the northern political oligarchy to split Ohanaeze Ndigbo and tactically install PDP-preferred choice candidate to replace him,” Igboayaka revealed.
He noted that the Ime-Obi meeting summoned by Okwukwu on 31st Dec. 2020 was a child of necessity in line with Article 11, paragraph 8 and page 14 of the Ohanaeze Constitution, adding that in the eyes of the law, the reconvened Ime-Obi meeting that produced Hon. Richard Ozobu-led Electoral Committee was legitimate.
Igboayaka, therefore, called upon all patriots of Igbo origin to rise up and stop Nwodo and his cliques of political maradonas from sinking the noble socio-cultural organization of Ndigbo or face massive civil disobedience of Igbo youths.
“I, therefore, implore the security agents to be at alert and watch Nnia Nwodo as he plans to create indigenous political crisis in Igbo land,” he concluded.
