OYC: CHIDI IBE NEVER CONTESTED FOR OHANAEZE NDIGBO PRESIDENCY
The National President of Ohanaeze Youth Council(OYC), the apex youth body of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka, have revealed while addressing news men in Enugu on 21st, Jan. 2021, that Mr. Chidi Ibe who is an errand boy to Senator Rochas Okorocha never contested for the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Igboayaka noted that right from time, the known candidates, the likes of Dr. Jeo Nwaorgu, Prof. Chidi Osuagwu, Dr. Chris Asoluka and Barr. Goddy Uwazurike declared interest to run for the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo but Mr. Ibe was never in the race for Ohanaeze presidency.
“The truth must be revealed, Mr. Chidi Ibe was contracted by Sen. Rochas Okorocha after I had a meeting with Rochas Okorocha, Bar. Uche Okwukwu, former Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo at Orashi Resort Ogboko on Sunday, 3rd January 2021,” Igboayaka revealed.
Comrade Igboayaka added that he noticed the selfish agenda of Sen. Okorocha to factionalize Ohanaeze Ndigbo and he declined engaging in further meetings with Okorocha and Okwukwu and that was when the Sen. Rochas contracted his ex-commissioner, Mr Ibe to do the hatchet job for him.
“The so-called election that pronounced Chidi Ibe President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo was a mere meeting done at Spibat, Rochas Okorocha’s resident in Owerri on Saturday 9th Jan. 2021.
Comrade Igboayaka debunked a statement credited to Mr. Ibe on Vanguard newspaper, alleging that the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Amb. George Obiozor warned Nnamdi Kanu to stop his Biafra agitation. “This is a blatant lie and a blackmail,” he said.
“Like I have stated previously, Sen. Rochas Okorocha and his errand boy Mr. Chidi Ibe want to throw Alaigbo into civil unrest by making callous statements to incite IPOB members against Ndigbo and the new leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo,” Igboayaka stated.
Comrade Igboayaka advised the State Security Service(SSS) to caution Sen. Rochas Okorocha and his errand boy to cease from making inciting statements capable of disrupting the relative peace in the South East, adding that duo makes hypocritical statements as if they love IPOB members.
“Mr. Chidi Ibe who lacks direction wants to use IPOB to launch undue popularity and relevance by seeking to incite IPOB against the new leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Amb. George Obiozor, Igboayaka revealed.”
The youth President noted that Mr Ibe quoted the Ohanaeze president out of context in order to garner sycophantic sympathy from IPOB members.
He said the actual statement made by Amb. Obiozor was recorded live by Channels TV and NTA, stressing that those who have a contrary message from unprofessional journalists who write junks with controversial captions should look for the video record of the above mentioned TV stations.
“The lies and blackmail Mr. Chidi Ibe is peddling is very childish, because I was there during the press conference, Amb. Obiozor’s speech was written, and circulated to everyone, including the journalists. Prof. Obiozor was positive about the quest of IPOB,” Igboayaka concluded.
