Ohanaeze: Unfounded allegations won’t deter our pursuit of Igbo interest – Isiguzoro


The factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro has declared that no amount of propaganda and frivolous allegations would make him jettison the pursuit of Igbo interest.

He spoke in reaction to allegations against him and some other chieftains of Ohanaeze Ndigbo by Ohanaeze President, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu.

Isiguzoro, who said there are clandestine meetings ahead of the 2027 election, which is aimed at satisfying the personal interest of an unnamed South-East governor in the All Progressives Congress, APC, said they would continue to frustrate such moves.

He said Professor Obasi Igwe, Dr. Harford Ugwu, and Professor Nwankwo Nwaezeigwe should be commended for standing tall in defence of Igbo interest and vilification.

“These noble individuals have exhibited unwavering courage in unveiling the hidden agendas and clandestine political machinations of the so-called ‘Ohanaeze Reconciliation Committee.’


“This committee, established in December 2023 with an office in Abuja, has been unmasked for its ulterior motive: to advance the 2027 Vice Presidential ambition of a Southeast Governor.

“The clandestine activities of this committee aim to pair a Southeast Governor as the running mate to a Northern presidential candidate in the 2027 elections.

“This strategic move seeks to exploit Northern discontent with the Federal Government to oppose President Bola Tinubu in the 2027 election.

“Despite facing setbacks exposed by leaked audio recordings, the civil intrigues to unseat President Tinubu persist, with financial backing provided by the Southeast Governor.

“This subversive effort involves leveraging a faction of misguided Igbo Elders to engage with Northern counterparts, Fulani leaders, and Northern Monarchs.”

He said the proponents had “resorted to deceptive tactics, baseless accusations, and alarmist strategies to obfuscate the truth.”

He said the allegations directed against him were “groundless, malicious, and untruthful.

“No monetary demands for any medical trip were made to Chief Iwuanyanwu by Isiguzoro. We challenge Chief Iwuanyanwu to substantiate any claims he makes.

“Isiguzoro, along with Professor Obasi, Professor. Nwankwo Nwezeigwe, and other dedicated individuals, will not be deterred by ongoing threats, intimidation, or false media propaganda.

“Recent events highlight the urgency of safeguarding OHANAEZE NDIGBO from being co-opted for the 2027 Vice Presidential aspirations of the Southeast Governor.

“Attempts to extend the President General’s tenure from Imo State and deprive Rivers State of the rightful opportunity to lead OHANAEZE Ndigbo must be scrutinized and resisted by Ndigbo.”

He called on all Ndigbo and well-meaning Nigerians “to stand together to safeguard our collective future from divisive forces seeking to manipulate our destiny.

“It is only through collaboration, honesty, and a firm dedication to the truth that we can navigate the challenges that lie ahead.”
