Ohanaeze Youth Council warns parallel group against impersonation for gratification The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), umbrella organization uniting all youths of Igbo extraction has condemned what it termed insults on the person of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo by another group claiming to be OYC, and warned one Okechukwu Isiguzoro against claims that he is the president of the organization. In a press state be signed by its national president, Comrade Anachuna Chukwudi and Publicity Secretary, ​​​​Igboayaka O Igboayaka, OYC frowned at the incessant publication and write-ups in the name of OYC by the said Isiguzoro, a development it said has become a source of embarrassment to Igbos worldwide. It described the purported warning against Obasanjo as an insult on the country, as he (Obasanjo) is not only an elder, but a former leader of the country, who, not even Presudent Goodluck Jonsthan insults. It further described Isiguzoro as a mere errand boy for the former president of Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo, Chief Igariwey, and advised him to stop acting out scripts doctored by political jobbers. The statement read in parts: “These publications include insulting and promising war to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and other ethnic groups on their position to support their preferred Presidential Candidates, insults on instituted Igbo authorities among other things. “For the records, Mr. Okechukwu Isigusoro has never been the president of Ohanaeze Youth Council. He is an errand boy to the former President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Chief Gary Igariwey whose tenure expired on the 12th of January 2015. Ohaneze Youth Council has continued to maintain that publications from Okechukwu Isigusoro and co. are not from Ohanaeze Youth Council. Mr. Okechukwu Isigusoro and his cohorts should desist from putting up very inciting publications that are most unreasonable and unrealistic. A close look at such publication shows that they are mere political jobbers and sycophants use in their ill gotten financial inducement to discredit Ohanaeze Youth Council and the Igbos in general through their reaction to non-sensitive issues that does not even concern the Igbos. They are just playing the scripts doctored by their political associates and sponsors, thereby dragging the name of OYC and the Igbos to the mud. “Igbos are generally intelligent, objective and very reasonable. We should not be distracted by these politically jobbers, whose sole aim has always been to enrich themselves at the detriment of the Igbo masses. The Igbos should continue to be vigilant to their vices, while contributing positively to the development, growth and total emancipation of the Igbo Race politically and economically. This is what the Ohanaeze Youth Council stands for, not playing politics with the future of our generation and the generations unborn. “History will never forgive any Igbo person that plays to the gallery at this trying and sensitive period that the extinction of the Igbo Race is been manipulated by the ruling cabals”.
