The apex socio-cultural youth organization of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has appealed to all well-meaning Igbos at home and abroad to caution Governors David Umahi and Okezie Ikpeazu to withdraw their financial sponsorship of one Mr Okechukwu Isiguzo Okwu Nnabuike to ridicule the name of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“It has come to our notice that Mr. Okechukwu Isiguzo has been receiving undue financial patronage from Gov Umahi and Gov Ikpeazu to attack the Labour Party presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi.
“In a particular public statement, the said Okechukwu Isiguzo urged Peter Obi to stop challenging Bola Tinubu’s controversial victory at the election petition tribunal after congratulating the latter through Okwu Nnabuike who has been parading himself and impersonating the character of the youth leader of Ohanaeze Youth Council. Mr Isiguzo on his part, cannot be criminally using the respected office of the Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to propagate the shallow and insensitive biddings of desperate and corrupt politicians for peanuts he receives for doing their dirty job.
Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka National president Ohanaeze Youth Council OYC on Sunday 29th, April 2023 revealed the political antics of Okechukwu Isiguzo and Okwu Nnabuike while answering questions from news men at Enugu, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide Secretariat before the Ime-Obi meeting.
Comrade Igboayaka not noted “It is disheartening that in another media outing, Mr Okechukwu Isiguzo having his palms been greased by Gov Umahi, was campaigning for him to emerge as the Senate President of the 10th National Assembly.
“It is unfortunate that Governor Umahi who his 2023 presidential ambition hit the brick wall has been sulking over his defeat at the primaries and is now envious of the political achievements and personality of Mr. Peter Obi whom he is now trying to pull down using gluttonous and unscrupulous characters to ridicule the name of the most Igbo socio-cultural group Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“Ndigbo must understand that the public shame Okechukwu Isiguzo and one Mazi Okwu Nnabuike is bringing to Ndigbo through unnecessary press releases against the overall interest of Ndigbo is being hopelessly sponsored by Gov David Umahi and Gov Okezie Ikpeazu.
“It could be recalled that during the time of Dr Nnia Nwodo as the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, he appealed to Ikpeazu to call his kinsman Okechukwu Isiguzo to order but Gov Ikpeazu did nothing! Yet he sponsored Okechukwu Isiguzo to India for medical treatment for a spinal cord injury he sustained during a racketeering deal with corrupt politicians.
“We, therefore, call on the attention of of every Igbo group and illustrious Igbo personalities to be aware that Gov David Umahi has been commissioned by Bola Tinubu to use Mr Okwu Nnabuike and Mr Okechukwu Isiguzo to ridicule the move by Mr Peter Obi to reclaim his mandate through legal means. Their evil plot is being hatched to create a cheap impression that Ohanaeze Ndigbo have succumbed to the huge electoral fraud committed that produced Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the president-elect through the help of Mahmood Yakubu and other criminal-minded officers of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“Finally, Ohanaeze Youth Council call on every progressive Igbo youth in various communities to give useful information on the whereabouts and/or the hiding place of Mr. Okechukwu Isiguzo and Okwu Nnabuike. It’s anti-igbo and social evil for Gov David Umahi and Gov Okezie Ikpeazu sponsoring Okechukwu Isiguzo and Okwu Nnabuike to destabilize Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and destroy Ala-Igbo, but Gov David Umahi and Gov Okezie Ikpeazu must know that those who destroy others in order to succeed must have destruction awaiting them at the corridor of their life” Igboayaka concluded
