Ohaneze Ndigbo has called on Nigerians to disregard all statements by one Okechukwu Isiguzoro who purports to be President of the youth wing of the association.
In a press release issued through his special adviser, the President-General dismissed his claim that he was President of Ohaneze youth wing.
He said two men, in search of cheap popularity have cast aspersions on the person of the President-General, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo.
The statement said that the youth wing of Ohaneze Ndigbo was dissolved in 2016 by Ime-Obi led National Executive Council, while the tenure of the women wing expired in 2017.
He said the so-called Ohaneze youth wing executive did not exist as the new executives for both the youth and women wings would soon be elected.
He said the National Executive of Ohaneze Ndigbo existed at the instance of the General Assembly, which had demonstrated confidence on the executive committee led by Nwodo.
He added that Nwodo had continued to enjoy the confidence of the National Executive Council of Ohaneze Ndigbo.
The statement said the President-General was the only member among the executive prohibited by the constitution from participating in party politics.
And that it was preposterous to imagine that Nwodo could romance with any political aspirant, let alone determine his choice of a running mate.
The statement concluded by saying that associating Nwodo with politics could only be the handiwork of some mischievous politicians.
