From: Chuks Onuoha, Umuahia

A group of youths, the Ibeku Youth Assembly has declared their support for Ohuhu clan, of Abia State, as the next clan to represent the  people of Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency at the National Assembly.

Rising from an enlarged meeting held, on Tuesday, at Ohokobe Mbaocha Ndume Town hall in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State, the youths said that based on facts on ground that Umuokpara has produced a member of the House of Representatives in Hon. Acho Obioma, Ikwuano produced Chief Emeka Atuma, Ibeku produced Hon. Stanley Ohazuruka, Old-Umuahia clan had Chief Oluchi Ibeji and Ikwuano is currently occupying the seat again, in Samuel Onuigbo.

The goths reasoned that it was in the interest of justice that Ohuhu clan be allowed to take a shot at it.

According to them,  after thorough assessment, they  endorsed Mr. Charles Nzechi, Founder, Charles Nzechi Foundation as the most qualified candidate to represent Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency come 2019.

“We endorsed Mr. Charles Nzechi based on his track records in humanitarian services, youth empowerment and business. We believe Nzechi is fit, competent and energetic to attract dividends of democracy to the people of great Ikwuano/Umuahia.

“That we resolved that no Ibeku son or daughter will be supported to run the seat of Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency come 2019 election.

In a communique signed by Kingsley Nwokeukwu,  President, Mr. Ihechi Chinedu Zik,  Secretary, Mr. Chinedu Emereuwa, Publicity Secretary, the youths stated that Nzechi’s track records of  humanitarian services, youth empowerment and business qualifies him more than any other candidate.

“ We believe Nzechi is fit, competent and energetic to attract dividends of democracy to the people of great Ikwuano/Umuahia in 2019”, the youths said.

They resolved that no Ibeku son or daughter would be supported to run for the seat of Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency come 2019 election.

They urge  warring factions in Ibeku clan  as a result of the outcome of the election for the President-General of Ibeku Egwu Asaa Development Association (IEADA), to sheathe their swords and work together for the development of Ibekuland.

They also condemned the  politicisation of Ibeku culture and tradition which, if not God’s intervention, has nearly torn the clan apart.

They  warn youths from Ibeku clan to abstain from violence in the forthcoming Iwa ji/iri ji ibeku festival, adding “there will be no brandishing of dangerous weapons during the cultural festival will be condoned. We are setting up a security committee to apprehend and hand over to the security agencies any ibeku youth causing trouble during the festival”, they warned.
