The spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu recently revealed this when a delegation of Pan Nigeria Presidency of Igbo Extraction Coalition, PANPIEC, visited him in Umuahia, Abia State capital.
According to him, the civil war in Nigeria can only end practically if an Igbo citizen becomes President in 2023.
He added that the years of Igbo men and women being marginalized in Nigerian politics are long over.
On controversies rocking Ohaneze, Barrister Nnia Nwodo said, “We recognise that time and again, an Igbo speaking governor may hold a personal perspective and that is his or her prerogative, but the general consensus of Ohanaeze Ndiigbo remains that Chief Nnia Nwodo, the current President General of Ohanaeze is the only authentic mouthpiece of the Ndi-Igbo.
“This type of interference on the legitimate leadership of Ohanaeze must be condemned by all full-blooded Igbo persons.”
“The report reaching IWA stated that Igwe Nkeli Nzekwe, went to Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, to register another Ohaneze group with the same exact name. His actions were foiled when CAC realized that Ohaneze has been in existence since 1976 with its corporate charter legally registered by CAC”.
“Ndiigbo did not give Igwe Nkeli Nzekwe, any permission to inaugurate its “national and state executive committee members”, in his palace in Igbariam, while awarding the chairmanship of the Board of Trustees (BOT) to himself. These two usurpers owe Ndiigbo a well-deserved apology for their act of thuggery and rascality.
“IWA believes that the new group was being used by some politicians to cause disaffection in Igboland because our President General Barrister Nnia Nwodo Ohanaeze Ndigbo is competently leading an active, hardworking and viable Ohanaeze Ndigbo organization.
“Our true board of Trustee (BoT) Chairman of Ohanaeze Ndiigbo remains the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe. All the eminent Igbo leaders are in Ohanaeze including, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Prof Ben Nwabueze, SAN, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Southeast governors, among others.
“The purported new group is just being used to create confusion and destabilize Igboland. We believes that Igwe Nkeli Nzekwe and his group are being used to destabilize Ohanaeze and Igbo interests.”
