Ohanaeze presidential candidates face peace committee

9

From PETRUS OBI, Enugu

Chief Enwo Igariwey, who was recently elected President-General of the Igbo apex body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in the controversial election that held on January 12, was among three presidential candidates who yesterday appeared before the Senator Ben Obi peace committee recently set up by the South East Governors’ Forum.

Other presidential candidates, who appeared before the committee, which sat at the Enugu residence of House of Representatives member, Hon. Ogbuefi Ozongbachi, were Senator Azu Agboti and former Minister, Chief Igwe Aja Nwachukwu. Others, who were also interviewed by the committee, which started sitting on Thursday were the chairman of the election committee, Chief Chris Asoluka, Mrs. Grace Eneh, who was used to replace Chief Richard Ozobu as secretary, Dr. Joe Nworgu, who was elected Secretary-General among others.

The meeting with the candidates, which was held behind closed doors, started at about 12 noon yesterday with other committee members, Professor Joe Irukwu, Bishop Emmanuel Chukwuma of the Enugu Anglican Diocese, Monsignor Obiora Ike, chairman of the committee Senator Ben Obi and Hon Ozongbachi in attendance. Although journalists were not allowed at the meeting, our reporter gathered that one of the dominant issues was the absence of Senator Agboti and Igwe Ajanwachukwu at the January 12th election where the duo were reported to have stepped down. Mrs. Grace Eneh, who had a chat with newsmen shortly after she was interviewed, told newsmen that the committee was trying to get facts from persons involved in the election.

Chief Igariwey expressed confidence that with the caliber of personalities in the committee that peace can be achieved. Secretary of the election committee, Chief Richard Ozobu, who pulled out of the committee over what he described as irregularities in the guidelines, had planned for another election in Ebonyi January 19th before they were stopped by a court injunction.

Governors of the South East, who were absent from the January 12 election, had in their last meeting in Enugu set up the committee to wade into the crisis in Ohanaeze, with a view to reconciling the warring parties. The governors also urged all those in court to withdraw their cases and urged those involved in the face off to stop making statements in the interest of peace.

  1. Ohanaeze was supposed to be Igbo pride..an Ime Obi chamber of respectable Igob stalk, men and women, well above board who were supposed to present one and unequivocal voice for the Igbo race where ever they are anywhere in nigeria. As I read the list of those in attendance, I can only question, how did they quickly rubbished the organization?. How did politicians get in there?. This is a group of inner council men of calibre of Igbo pedigree. This was the council of men like Col. Joe Achuzia, Retired Justice Richard Ozobu, Ralph Uwaechue, and Dr. Ikedife and so on and so forth. Just how did these clowns and ex 419 politicians got there?. At this point, we must continue our search for relevance in this country, I am sure these present clowns have no agenda on how to get us there, they are just there for their personal pribe and self aggradisement.

  2. I thank the governors of the southeast for initiating the peace move .God bless them. Ohanaeze is the pride of all igbos it must not die those people that don’t have Igbo agenda in their mind should leave the organization.

  3. These men should stop rubbing chacoal on the faces of Igbos. We don’t want the irregularities which is the order of the day in Nigerias elections to creep into the Igbo race. One mind, one voice and one heart.
    Igbo amaka.
    Ndi Igbo kwenu!

    good move by the south east governors.let every case in d court regarding ohaneze mata be withdrawn immediately without further delay.i dnt know wht those so called elders are teaching us the youths,if they can nt show good example how can we get it right?everytime ohaneze is always in one crisis or the other,god help ndigbo

  5. Shame on the so called president-general of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Enwo Igariwey. At your age, you still think you are the person we can present to win a vote in Ibo land talk of Nigeria?. You people are not serious, thank God that nobody watches you when voting. You people can do anything, we the poor masses are watching and laughing. In the first place where do you come from. This your names sounds like Rivers State’s name. You are not an Ibo man for bearing that name. We need vibrant men like Rochas, Peter Obi, Chime , Dora Akunyili and the Ngiges. Some people are politically irrelivant in Iboland, for instance the 2 Orjis, Ohakims, the Ubas and a host of the Abuja thieves. We are laughing.
