2023: Ohanaeze-Ndigbo Working Against Igbo Presidency — Iyere 

  • Says Ohaneze- Ndigbo Should Tender Apologies For Slander
By Raymond Ozoji, Awka
Popular humanitarian activist and frontline social entrepreneur, Comrade Kennedy Iyere, has rebuked Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, currently the National Publicity Secretary of the Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo for allegedly cooking up lies in an attempt to cover up the shameful conduct against him. He said they displayed this shameful conduct in September 2020 in Awka, Anambra State where Chief Damian Okeke, Anambra Chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and Alex Ogbonnia, then Ohanaeze Chairman of Enugu State, ruthlessly compelled him to pay money to the Chairmen of Ohanaeze Ndigbo representing Anambra, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo, Delta and Rivers.
Comrade Iyere, who spoke exclusively with our correspondent, said the aforementioned dramatis personae conditionally demanded of him to pay money to the Chairmen of Ohanaeze Ndigbo representing the above-indicated seven states as Damian Okeke and Alex Ogbonnia who both threatened to exclude Ohanaeze Ndigbo from his  Advocacy Project for 2023 Igbo Presidency unless they were paid to be part of it.
Iyere said,  “These men got paid by me and still shamelessly didn’t get involved but chose to rather use Ohanaeze Ndigbo to fight my high-level advocacy for 2023 Igbo Presidency, which I anchored through the support of Afenifere, PANDEF and Middle Belt Forum. Today, I am like a Son to the leaders of Afenifere, PANDEF and the Middle Belt Forum because of what I have done to push for the actualization of Igbo Presidency in 2023, while the Obiozor-led Ohanaeze EXCO Members have continued their fruitless attempts to frustrate my efforts just the same way they have done over the past two years.”
Comrade Iyere therefore buttressed his points further saying that the pro-Igbo advocacy for the actualization of a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction was unveiled  in Awka under the name of  Global Movement for Igbo Presidency (GLOMIP 2023). The unveiling he said was conducted on the 6th October, 2020 by His Excellency, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, CFR (Okwadike), former Governor of Anambra State.
Iyere said, “Today, our efforts have paid off as Peter Obi is now widely celebrated as the best and favourite candidate among the available options for the 2023 presidential election but Ohanaeze should realize the fact that they fought me secretly just to hinder the struggle for Igbo Presidency in 2023.
“I won’t say many things here but I am waiting till when the current Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo will make a single comment in the media trying to deny the things they did some of which I have outlined, only then will I come out in full force to beam my searchlight on the Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo and let Igbos know more about their anti-Igbo activities, especially their efforts to hinder the actualization of Igbo Presidency in 2023. This current Ohanaeze Ndigbo are more for Atiku even as they are being funded by Hope Uzodimma who also was the man that installed Prof George Obiozor.
“Haven’t you seen that the PDP has given it’s Chairmanship to an Igbo political elite, who shamelessly accepted it, yet Ohanaeze Ndigbo has done nothing to indict Adolphus Wabara for accepting to work against Peter Obi. Nnia Nwodo is on Atiku’s payroll. Okwesilieze Nwodo is on Atiku’s payroll. Yet these men are key leaders and stakeholders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“Peter Obi should open his eyes wide and have a second look at these men. They don’t mean well for Igbos, they are Atiku’s Moles. Not just the two of them, others such as Prof George Obiozor, Alex Ogbonnia and the current Secretary General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo are also on the ‘watchlist’, as confirmed moles working against Peter Obi.
“Thank God for people like Pa Ayo Adebanjo, Chief Edwin Clark, Dr Pogu Bitrus, Commodore Dan Suleiman, Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife (Okwadike), Prof Ihechukwu Madubuike, Chief Simon Okeke, Dr Nwachukwu Anakwenze, Alex Iheke,  General Ihekire (Retd), Chief (Mrs) Chika, Retd Comptroller Ihagh, Comrade Kenneth Robinson, Barrister Sola Ebisieni, Comrade Ajayi, etc.
“They are the reasons we have Peter Obi today, I worked with all of these great and prominent Nigerians, mention me to them and most of them knew what Prof George Obiozor and his gang of anti-Igbo EXCO members did to me over the past two years for fighting for the actualization of Igbo Presidency in 2023. In fact, the Secretary General of the George Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo is one man I doubt if he is really an Igbo indigene or Fulani.
“Alex Ogbonnia, the money I paid your Seven Ohanaeze State Chairmen in Awka, was given to you because you desperately imposed it on me to do so. You need to apologize to me and to other Igbo indigenes for dragging their names in the mud. If you try to deny further, I shall bring my witnesses to AIT and ARISE TV who will tell the Igbo Nation how it all happened.
“Have you forgotten how you collected the money from the Bank Manager who delivered the money, that Bank Manager is still alive and not dead. Have you forgotten Chuks was also there? I will disgrace you further if you push me harder by coming to the media to give a false witness.”
