Enugu; The Lagos State branch of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, an apex lgbo socio-cultural organisation, has reaffirmed its support and vote-of-confidence on the National Executive leadership of Ohanaeze led by Chief Emmanuel lwuanyanwu.

The Ohanaeze branch also threw its weight behind exemplary conducts of three National Youth leaders of the Igbo socio-cultural group, which included: Mr Chinedu Ugwa, Mr Obasi Onu and Comrade Chukwuma Okpalazeukwu.

This is contained in a statement issued in Enugu on Tuesday by the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State Branch, Chief Robert Obasi.

Obasi also explained that the branch’s recent visit to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwolu, was not fraudulent; while dismissing a libelous publication against the visit.

The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a publication circulating on the platform of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos and other Igbo platforms, where three illustrious sons of NDIGBO were wrongly labeled “Fraudsters”.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos recognised and appreciates the contribution of Chukwuma Okpalazeukwu during the 2023 campaign. Their participation in the endorsement of Gov. Babajide Sanwolu.”

The statement said that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State in collaboration with the G50 Ofu Obi are aware of the award presented to the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwolu, by the aforementioned persons.

It said, “We state that the award was genuine and was done in good faith.

“We categorically state that no one was arrested for awarding the Excellence Award to the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwolu, by the security agencies as claimed by the writer.

“We state that, Mr Chinedu Ugwa, Mr Obasi Onu and Comrade Chukwuma Okpalaczeukwu are bona fide members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo with outstanding leadership achievements.”

The statement frowned at the activities of paid mercenaries who act as tools of destruction in Ohanaeze Lagos State Branch.

“The executive members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State disassociate themselves from all the activities of any impostor,” he said. (Flowerbudnews)
