The attention of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo has been drawn to a statement circulating in some sections of the media, attributed to our organisation describing the recent election of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu as a “national calamity, considering the enormity of the baggage he is burdened with”.
We wish to quickly state as follows:

  1. The statement did not originate from Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide. We have no hands in the content, context, comprehension and delivery of the unfounded statement.
  2. Ohanaeze read the message with sadness and views its contents as unfortunate, especially the attacks in that statement on the person and health status of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
  3. The statement is very unfortunate, irresponsible, diversionary and most reprehensible. We had earlier stated that those behind such fake press releases are mischief makers, impostors, charlatans and unscrupulous social climbers who have shamelessly leeched on the invaluable footprints of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to issue press releases for narrow, perverse and illicit pecuniary interests. It is such unwholesome activities by some maladjusted, impish scaremongers that have been the bane of Igbo cohesion.
  4. We state clearly that the author of the unfortunate statement is not the Secretary General of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo. The Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide is H.E Amb. Okay Emuchay, MFR and not the impostor that authored the ill-informed, ill-advised statement.
  5. For the avoidance of doubt, Ohanaeze has no personal issues with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to warrant the careless comments on his person although we certainly have issues with the current political arrangement and structure that appear to be an orchestrated policy to alienate, isolate, exclude, marginalize and frustrate Ndigbo in a country that bears eloquent testimonies of Igbo sweat, sacrifice, ambience and transformation.
  6. On the unfolding political developments in the country, we wish to inform all Nigerians and Ndigbo at home and in the Diaspora that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide led by Ambassador Professor George Obiozor is following the political developments very closely with keen interests and will make its position public at the appropriate time.
