The leadership of Ohaneze worldwide and a coalition of Igbo groups namely women professionals,world Igbo youth congress and Igbo students movement yesterday said that lacked the clout to deliver both president Muhammadu Buhari and Akitu Abubakar.

Ohanaeze Youth and two others, said they would resist all forms of vote buying in the region.

According to the statement, Ohanaeze youths pulled out from the Igbo day held yesterday at Owerri in Imo State, describing it as a bad precedent for holding Igbo day apart from September 29th as December 18th is not a day set aside for Igbo day.

He said what played out during the award ceremony to past and present leaders of the country in Imo state was a charade, especially the award to Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje was a charade.

“But the award to governor Ganduje is the height of immoralities in Igbo land as the spirit of the beheaded Mrs Bridget from Imo state killed in 2016 in Kano for alleged blasphemy will continue to haunt governor Ganduje and the organizers of the award to him.

Those who misled Ohanaeze leadership into this charade will be punished.

“According to Ohanaeze constitution,Igbo day celebration holds September 29th annually.So what is going on in Owerri is not Igbo day,but Imo state day with the intention of Ndigbo and Nigerians, the apex decision making organ in Ohaneze which is the ‘imeobi’ never approved the congregation of people meeting in Owerri
