Parallel Ohanaeze Elections Held In Imo As Obiozor, Ibeh Returned As President by valentineuwakwe(m): 12:41am On Jan 11
Two different elections held consecutively on Saturday and Sunday in Imo State, have produced Chidi Ibeh and George Obiozor as the President Generals of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
DAILY POST reports that Chidi, a former commissioner in Imo State, emerged the winner of the foremost socio-cultural group held on Saturday at an undisclosed venue.

The factional President General was produced alongside Dimm Uche Okwukwu and Okechukwu Isiguzoro as Deputy PG and Secretary-General respectively.

Sources claim that Chidi Ibeh comes from former Governor Rochas Okorocha’s camp, who had earlier opposed the consensus arrangement adopted by Senator Hope Uzodinma.

In a similar exercise held on Sunday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, George Obiozor, who was purportedly selected as the consensus candidate for the seat, polled 304 votes to come first among two other contestants, Valentine Oparaocha and Uju Okoro who polled 15 and 3 votes respectively.


Obinwali Ihunwo from Rivers state was returned unopposed as the Deputy President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo.

DAILY POST further learned that while Obiozor’s election was conducted under the committee chairmanship of Gari Igariwey, that of Rochas Okorocha’s camp was officiated by Prince Richard Ozobu-led committee.

So Imbecilic Rochas wants to do to Ohaneze what Tinubu did to Afenifere...

Now Ohaneze will start visiting courts.

Former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States Professor George Obiozor emerges new President General of the Igbo socio-cultural group Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Congratulations Prof.
This is a new dawn for we true Igbos of our darling nation.
He is a good man.
The man for the tough job ahead.



festacman:
Ohaneze needs to reinvent itself by moving away from political partisanship and focusing on development. Never again should Ohaneze corporately choose a presidential candidate. Since, all parties have Igbo as members, give audience to every presidential candidate to present his plans for SE region and then allow people to make their choice.

The new President, Prof George Obiozor, needs to spearhead the setting up of an Ohaneze Think Tank - an intellectual arm - to research on ways of strategically advancing the political, economic and social interests of Igbo race nationally and globally.

There is no reasons why South East States shouldn't have high-brow estates and world-class Industrial Estates to encourage the "aku luo uno" philosophy to develop Igbo land economically.

Furthermore, apart from the above-mentioned strategic thinktank and already existing committees, Ohaneze also needs to create more standing committees to involve YOUNG Igbo people in its affairs. Such committees will cover areas like Economic Development, Youth Development, Education/Students' Affairs, Sports Development, Diaspora Relations, Reconciliation, Inter-ethnic Relations, Intra-constituents (Nsukka, Ikwerre, Anioma, Aros, Abakiliki, etc.) Relations, Igbo language and Culture Promotion, etc.

Bottomline is that Ohaneze needs to be more responsive, more responsible and relevant to the life an average Igbo person. Simple!
You can word this better patriotic Nigerian.
You have said it all.

Imo state will always make a mess of everything . Just their turn we are now having two presidents....

Something is really wrong with those people..

Okorocha Camp
Hope Camp
Soon Ihedioha camp go join..ndi ala

The factional President General was produced alongside Dimm Uche Okwukwu and Okechukwu Isiguzoro as Deputy PG and Secretary-General respectively.

But on a serious note......What this man Okwukwu is still doing in Ohanaeze and Igboland In general is what we are yet to understand.

He keeps causing confusion all the time.

This man should be sent back to Rivers state to Join Ogbakor Ikwerre and stop creating confusion and rancour all the time..

OHANAEZE NDIGBO DISWONS IPOB

Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-cultural group in Nigeria, representing all Igbo communities in and outside Nigeria, rising from deep, due and diligent reflections on the socio-political and economic state of affairs in Nigeria, our country, avowedly, superlatively and supremely make this declaration at this point of the nation’s need, that we are the apex representatives of the Igbo ethnic group of Nigeria at home and in Diaspora without any contestation from any other group whether known or unknown, familiar or alien, in existence or nonexistence;

That we, in strong terms, condemn the nefarious acts, plans and movements of the proscribed Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which has since formation ingloriously cast the Igbo people of Nigeria in bad light. Without mincing words, we have over the time observed the rude, repulsive and discourteous style with which IPOB has arranged and orchestrated its affairs in the name of Igbo ethnicity, something very foreign to known civilization as respectable people.

It is a well-known fact that Ndigbo being one of the advanced societies of Nigeria is gifted with tweaks of refinement against barbarism, good taste against acidity and morally admirable principles against vile and violence, therefore, the Igbo has always been looked upon as one of the most receiving societies of man’s society anthropologically

That with remorse and pang of guilt, we regret that Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB have won the average Igbo man anywhere and everywhere, a national and international nest of enmity, hostility and aggression, visiting us with unfathomable, indefinable and bottomless abhorrence, the magnitude of what remains unseen in our entire history of consciousness.

As a people once united in love, we are today left on the speculation of our survival which now exists in uncertainty wherever we are found as Ndi Igbo.

To this end, we invite every “Nwafor-Igbo” to committedly join us in the total fight and condemnation of IPOB and accompanying violent acts in the name of Igbo which has brought our ethnicity down to nothing but unmitigated shame and infamy.

It is sad that we, the Ohaneze Ndigbo have fallen in deep loss as to why and when a coeval of educated, civil and enlightened Igbo suddenly passed away to give room to the generational gap of youths on which the present crop now exists, selling deaths and other forms of danger perceived and artificially manufactured enemies of Igbo.

Our race is now endangered by the wild and undomesticated influence of Nnamdi Kanu and his political supporters in the name of Igbo nationalism.
Why able bodied youths and men who should be concerned about the success of themselves and their people will swing into destruction of lives of their people and properties in our sacrosanct Igbo name, is indeed a mystery and the harm already done us is growing in leaps and bounds.


Whereas Nnamdi Kanu recently directed his usual desperate overkill to our Anioma brothers in faraway Delta State, calling them fools over what he termed denials of their Igbo identity, he assumes the biggest reason for the near disintegration of the Igbo race and nationality that warrants the Anioma, Ikwerre, Onitsha and others to deny their Igboness, the pride of which is now becoming more corrosive in them.

As we, the Igbo ceaselessly count our losses in the hands of untamed Nnamdi Kanu and fellow instigated miscreants, we shall not fail to condemn the recent Enugu incident in which IPOB is alleged to have attacked and sent to early graves, several people including two DSS officers whose patrol team was on duty.

The August 23, 2020 unprovoked violent attacks on the DSS personnel in Emene, Enugu State is not only disturbing to us as members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo but clearly demonstrates further signs of bad times ahead for every legitimate Igbo son and daughter in and outside the country since IPOB wrongly goes in the name of Igbo.

Additionally, we raise the alarm that if IPOB is not stopped, a time will come when Igbo patriotism will completely corrode and our people will begin to jettison their Igbo surnames to feel free from viral bad image. We sound this alarm to our Igbo community especially our particular people who have had to keep clapping for the already outlawed Group, to understand that the implication of the acts of IPOB are rife with unexpected implications.

With melee and gunfire from IPOB filling the air and flowing blood every now and then, the time is coming when we may be forced to flee from our ancestral homeland by the violent IPOB.

Politically, we are worried that unless we come together to address the present IPOB situation, election into the exalted Presidential position of the nation may elude us yet again.
As 2023 draws near, we stand on the age-long international relations mantra that seeks to illuminate that power is taken, not handed. This requires us to open our arms to others within and outside the country; and to also submit ourselves to a good relationship and connection with other nationalities in the larger Nigeria.

Consequently, we, the members of Ohaneze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide, urge the nation’s security outfit to carry out a full-scale investigation into the incident and also put all measures in place to ensure that the killers of the DSS personnel and others who lost their lives in the dastardly act are speedily brought to book.

We pray for the repose of the souls of the military personnel and others who died in the incident and also condole with their families.

It's an attempt to dissect the revered Ohaneze into factions, hence, limiting it's strength.


The next one week will be intriguing with old men throwing shades back et fort.

The children here will fall for the bait and start throwing insults here and there at their leaders too.
