Ohanaeze Youth Accuses Okorocha, Ibe Of Inciting IPOB Against Organization

Published

on

The National President of Ohanaeze Youth Council(OYC), the apex youth body of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka has admonished Mr Chidi Ibe to refrain from making inciting statements capable of causing disunity and disharmony among Igbos.

Igboayaka gave the reprimand after the Council’s stakeholders’ meeting conveyed to x-ray the insultive utterances of Mr Ibe since the emergence of Prof. George Obiozor, as the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

Addressing newsmen in Owerri on Saturday January 23, 2021, the youth leader maintained that Mr. Ibe’s inciting statements against Ohanaeze Ndigbo is emboldened by the sponsorship he enjoys from Senator Rochas Okorocha.

Comrade Igboayaka stated that Rochas Okorocha’s unguarded tirades against Prof. George Obiozor was due to the insinuation and assumption that Prof. Obiozor and Sen. Hope Uzodinma are very close friends, stating that this was Okorocha’s statement at Ogboko when he(Igboayaka) had a meeting with him on the way forward for Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

“It’s obvious that Prof. Obiozor’s ambition to become the president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo was not conceived during Sen. Hope Uzodinma’s administration as the former had severally consulted Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha when he was the governor of Imo State.

“Rochas Okorocha wants to anchor his presidential ambition with sentiments on Ohanaeze Ndigbo and IPOB which explains why he was using Chidi Ibe to incite IPOB against the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to achieve a political sympathy and love from IPOB members,” Igboayaka noted.

“It’s very unfortunate that since the inception of Biafra agitation, many Igbo politicians have used pro-Biafrans to achieve their political selfish interests, and at the end they give pro-Biafra members name. Today, Chidi Ibe and Rochas Okorocha have found a new love in IPOB like Romeo and Juliet, just to project themselves as lovers of the Biafra movement,” Igboayaka stated.

“Were was Rochas Okorocha and Chidi Ibe when IPOB members are being killed and tortured by the security agents, and how many IPOB members did Ibe empower when he was Commissioner in Okorocha’s administration,” Igboayaka queried.

The OYC president stated that Chidi Ibe was using his inciting statements stressed mobilize IPOB for Okorocha’s presidential project, stressing that it is unacceptable for anyone to use his personal ambition to cause crisis with Igbo youths in IPOB.

He decried that the time and resources Okorocha was wasting in court to distract his brother Prof. Obiozor, could be channelled to a substantive adventure that can favour Ndigbo, wondering how at this critical point the Igbos are eaten starkly by leprosy while Rochas Okorocha and Chidi Ibe are busy romancing ringworm.

“Enough of this gimmick and nonsense by desperate Igbo politicians using Ndigbo and Biafra quest to whip up sentiments while in actual sense they are major beneficiaries of looting of Nigeria’s treasury,” Igboayaka warned.

“Ohanaeze Youth Council will not succumb to the politics of divide and rule by Chidi Ibe and his master Sen. Rochas Okorocha in Igbo land, but any patriotic progressive who love Ndigbo should drop his or her personal agenda and earnestly support Prof. Obiozor to build a new Igbo society as he leads the great Igbo race in the next four years,” he concluded.

Court Determines Nkechi Ugwu’s Fate Feb. 19 Over Certificate Case

Published

on

A Commissioner in Imo State Mrs Nkechi Ugwu has been sued by a concerned citizen  Mr. Obum Joseph, who is from  Imo State,  to present her certificate, with which she was screened through by the Imo State House of Assembly, before she was made a commissioner.

   In suit No. FHC/OW/CS/71/2020, dated 24th day of June and filed on the 26th day of June, 2020, at the Federal High Court, Owerri, presided over by His Lordship Tijani G. Ringim, Mr. Obum Joseph, through his legal counsel Barrister Kings Nwosu, based in Aba, Abia State, presented his originating summons, demanding the court to compel Mrs Nkechi Ugwu to present to the public the certificate with which she was screened through before becoming a commissioner.

  Addressing journalists at the Federal High Court, Owerri, when the matter was presented on Thursday, Counsel to Obum Joseph stated that the litigant took the first defendant Mrs Ugwu to court in view of the fact that as a concerned citizen of Imo State, from the same state with the Commissioner, that he (Obum Joseph) was duty bound to compel the first defendant to produce the certificate, in order to ascertain whether she was qualified to occupy the position, as according to his counsel: “he now feels that if Nkechi is made a Commissioner without presenting certificate when there are other better people, who have also served the interest of the party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), from the area, who have better Certificate that should have been considered instead of Nkechi Ugwu, that it will not augur well for his Local Government Area Ideato South.

  Counsel to Obum Joseph Barrister Kings Nwosu further said that instead of Nkechi Ugwu to simply comply with the demand of Obum Joseph, by presenting the demanded certificate, she through her counsel Barrister D. O. Agbo , raised some preliminary objections that Freedom of Information Bill (FIB) is not applicable in Imo State, as such that  the request by Obum should not be granted by the court.

  Barrister Kings Nwosu also stated that Mrs Ugwu equally maintained in her preliminary objections that nobody has come  to ask her for the certificate; in other words that the litigant and his counsel ought to have first of all asked her to present the certificate before taking her to court.

  Barrister Kings Nwosu further hinted thus: “in the affidavit in support of our originating summons, Obum Joseph made stenous  efforts that were geared towards making her to present the certificate, even before coming to court but she did not present it, hence he (Obum) now came to the court.”

  Furthering, Barrister Nwosu said: “Obum Joseph is acting as a concerned citizen because he comes from Imo state,the same state  with Nkechi Ugwu.”

  Joined in the suit, according to Barrister Kings Nwosu are: The Clerk, Imo State House of Assembly; the Imo State House of Assembly and the Attorney General of Imo State, in that order, Nkechi Ugwu being the first defendant.

  “I, acting for Obum Joseph, presented his originating summons and the lawyers from the Ministry of Justice  and the Attorney General office moved their counter claim, issued before the court. Arguments were taken and we asked the court to grant our application in respect of the originating summons, which Obum Joseph filled against Nkechi Ugwu. After replies from both Counsels, the Court unanimously adjourned the matter for 19th of February, 2021 for judgement,” Barrister Nwosu submitted.
