Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths have vowed to expose those plotting to destabilise the enduring peace in Enugu State.
The group’s warning is coming on the heels of a group led by one Amb. Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, who promised to lead a million-man march in Enugu to demand Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s scorecard.
In a statement, yesterday, in Abuja, the President-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said it was baseless for any right-thinking and honest person to say there was a lack of good governance in Enugu State when all indicators and statistics showed otherwise.
He noted that hiding under a non-existing alias, ‘Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly’ was part of the game plan by politicians who feel threatened by Ugwuanyi’s rising profile.
Nnabuike: “We read with consternation the report in a section of the media credited to one faceless person, who goes by the name Amb. Tony Chiemelu Obizoba, claiming to be the Director-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo General Assembly Worldwide.
“Our first thought was to ignore the faceless report, but we had to respond so as not to allow it to have credence in the minds of some gullible and uninformed members of the public. Apart from the fact that there is no such group in Igbo land, all the claims made in the statement are false narratives. Contrary to the baseless claims, Enugu State has remained one of the safest states in the country, even in the face of the current unrest in the South East and this is as a result of the quality leadership being provided by Ugwuanyi.”
Okwu urged the governor not to be distracted, but to continue his good works for the people of the state.
“The entire Igbo youths are behind the governor, a man of the people, a peacemaker, a unifier. He should not lose sleep over the antics of these desperadoes,” he added.
