Igbo Group Rejects Iwuanyanwu As Ohaneze Ndigbo President

Posted by Thandiubani on Fri 21st Apr, 2023 - tori.ng

Njiko Igbo Forum said it will, instead, recommend Joe Nworgu, who served as Secretary General and Deputy Secretary General, respectively, for Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, in the past.

 
Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has been rejected as the new President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
 
A sociopolitical group and affiliate of Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide, Njiko Igbo Forum rejected Iwuanyanwu.
 
This was disclosed in a press release signed by the president of Njiko Igbo Forum, Rev Okechukwu Christopher Obioha, on Friday, according to DailyPost.
 
Njiko Igbo Forum said it will, instead, recommend Joe Nworgu, who served as Secretary General and Deputy Secretary General, respectively, for Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, in the past.
 
Recall that a delegation of the Imo Elders Council, led by the chairman, HRM Eze Cletus Ilomuanya, had presented Iwuanyanwu to Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma as the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
 
Ilomuanya told Uzodinma that the Imo State Council of Elders decided to adopt Iwuanyanwu at its meeting in April in Owerri.
 
However, Njiko Igbo Forum said the group and other Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide affiliate organisations wouldn’t recognise Iwuanyanwu.
 
The statement read: “As the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide is demised and Imo State is unarguably the State to still retain the President General, we strongly recommend Joe Nworgu PhD (Cambridge) who was one the contestants to that position.

“Who so do recommend Joe Nworgu, PhD (Cambridge) as suitably qualified to take up the mantle of the Leadership, having served dutifully as Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and previously for several years been the Deputy Secretary General.

“If Chief Dr Iwuanyanwu wants to be called the President General, he is on his own and will not be recognised by us, and l am sure by other affiliate organisations of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.”
