Ohanaeze: Chidi Ibe Rejects En
The Chairman of South East governors'forum and Ebonyi State Gov, Engr Davi Umahi was yesterday disappointed at the goverment lodge, Owerri in Imo State. Governor Umahi was said to had gone to Owerri to engage the two Leadership factions of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in reconciliation deal to restore peace in the sociocultural organization.

Sources from the venue of the meeting in goverment lodge said immense and unpretentious anger registered on the faces of both Gov Davi Umahi and Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, who were conveners of the reconciliation meeting.
Trouble leading to abrupt end of the meeting started, when the two governors backing the ambition of Prof George Obiozor to be the President General of the Apex Igbo sociocultural organization requested that Engr Chidi Ibe relinquish his position for Prof Obiozor.

Our reliable source reported that Chidi Ibe was quick to inform the two governors and others in the meeting that he remained the authentic President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide. According to the source, the Deputy President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo from Chidi Ibe's Faction, Barr Uche Okwukwu told the governors emphatically that the kangaroo election held at the stadium in Owerri, where Prof George Obiozor emerged was grossly unconstitutional. 
Barr Uche Okwukwu maintained that Engr Chidi Ibe was the President General elected on the dictates of Ohanaeze constitution.

In a related development, a reliable source informed that the absence of other five governors of Igbo speaking states at the meeting was a clear indication that they are not in support of the obnoxious manipulation of the election that produced Prof George Obiozor as Ohanaeze Ndigbo President General. This source maintained that these governors from Abia, Anambra, Delta, Enugu and Rivers states have joined the Igbo elders, stakeholders and intelligentsia to lend support to the authentic President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Engr Chidi Ibe, who was elected according to Ohanaeze's laid down constitutional stipulations.

Present at the meeting were Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyawu, Chief Gary Igariweh, Prof George Obiozor and others.

To demonstrate that he can not be distracted by the antics of Obiozor and other renegades in Ohanaeze, Engr Chidi Ibe went on to inaugurate the newly elected state Executive members of Imo State chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo shortly after leaving the goverment lodge.

Opening the ceremony, the President General expressed satisfaction with the patriotic disposition of Imo Ohanaeze members to serve Ndigbo. He thanked the Imo Ohanaeze President, Ambassador Azunna Akpelu for his commitment to keep the Imo Ohanaeze membership intact despite the deliberate confusion created by politicians to destroy the Igbo Apex sociocultural organization for their selfish Political Interest.
Engr Chidi Ibe advised the Imo Ohanaeze executives and local government Chairmen, who came for the inauguration to remain steadfast, promising that his tenure as President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo will restore the Igbo pride and past glory.

The Imo Ohanaeze executive members and local government Chairmen drawn from the 27 local government areas of the state were inaugurated by the President General. Other National Executives who came with the President General to Grace the occasion included, Deputy President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Barr. Uche Okwukwu, the Secretary, Comrade Okechukwu Ishiguzo, national Publicity secretary, Hon Temple Chika and the national Youth leader of the Igbo sociocultural organization.
