The Youth Wing of Ohaneze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, has begged Imolites, especially youths, to stay calm over the Supreme Court’s judgment on the governorship election in the state.
The National Youth Leader of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Arthur Obiora, revealed this as he spoke to newsmen in Enugu on political development in Imo.
According to Arthur, amid the judgment and reaction, the people must maintain peace.
He added that even if they don’t agree with the judgment, Imo residents must not forget to be law-abiding and responsible citizens.
His words, “Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Wing is asking for calmness in the whole of Imo”.
“We may not agree with the Supreme Court’s judgment but we are duty-bound as law-abiding and responsible citizens to accept it.
“We ask the new government to ensure that it keeps its campaign promises made to the good people of Imo at the end of the day.
“Ohaneze believes that good governance is all about bringing the dividends of democracy to the people.
“And the very best of good governance is what the peace-loving people and residents of Imo want now.”

Ohanaeze Ndigbo is an apex Igbo socio-cultural group in Nigeria. The group represents all Igbo communities within and outside Nigeria. Igbos by census, represent one of the three largest ethnic groups in Nigeria.
Although the group is not a political party, part of its objectives of creation is to foster unity among its members in order to better allow them to be representative within the political scenario of Nigeria. The policy is under review as there are some very important issues confronting ndi Igbo, some of which are even threatening their growth which the umbrella group needs to address urgently.
After the Nigerian civil war, some prominent Igbos gathered to proclaim the need to unify Igbos under a common umbrella body. This initiative was much welcomed considering maximum displacement of the Igbos during the war and its aftermath. An organizational assembly was created, referred to as the Igbo National Assembly (INA). This organization was later banned by the Federal Military Government at the time, probably due to the Government’s fear of a grand suspicious agenda being cultivated by the Igbos via the organization; hence, the creation of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in 1976.
