Press Statement 25/04/2022

The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has come hard on Governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and Okezie Ikpeazu of Enugu and Abia States, respectively.

Ohanaeze’s outburst is in connection with the two governors reported endorsement of the presidential aspiration of Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Ugwuanyi had within the week accompanied Wike to Ebonyi State where he went to meet with the members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Enugu Governor was absent as former Governor Peter Obi, also a PDP presidential aspirant visited Enugu State days earlier.

In a statement made available to journalists by the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he described the action of the two South-East governors as disgraceful and anti-Igbo agenda.

He said, “we observed with rude shock the unfortunate steps by Governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and Okezie Ikpeazu with regards to the much important Nigeria President of Igbo extraction.

“At a time we are making efforts to see an Igbo man succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, it is incredible that two prominent Igbo men are the very ones sabotaging the project.

“This is even more worrisome and most annoying considering that Wike had severally told whoever cares to listen that he is not an Igbo man. We then ask: whose interest is Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu serving?”

Okwu vowed that should the Igbo Presidecy project fail, the two governors would be held responsible.

“We won’t take this for granted; the entire Igbo youths are enraged and the only option for them is to retrace their steps,” he declared.
