The Ohanaeze Cliff-hanger

The Ohanaeze Cliff-hanger

By David Umahi | For Biafra Writers 

January 25, 2020

Ohanaeze Ndigbo – a group of washed-out politicians – has for many years propped itself up the ultimate Igbo group. By its current disposition, the group is currently in fierce battle to retain the fa├žade of the sole group speaking for the Igbo. Contrary to its wishful thinking however, the group is at the moment in a cliff-hanger.

The group’s last change of leadership exposed secrets that suggestive of the fact that the group is but a shadow of itself. Although they resources are being deployed for damage control, the deed is already done. 
In the view of many Igbos who commented on the group’s current quagmire, Ohanaeze has come to a Cul-de-sac, adding that the group has never been what it poses to be.

An Onitsha resident and public affairs commentator, David Tochukwu, believes that the group played a fast one when it attached “Ndigbo” to its name. Asserting that there is no Igbo representation in the group, Tochukwu described Ohanaeze as a gathering of unscrupulous politicians and retired Fulani stooges. Tochukwu accused the group of buying relevance by handsomely paying journalists and media houses to constantly mention the group in their reports. 

Other commentators believe that the group sells out their own people to curry favour from Nigerian government. The rumour that George Obiozor – factional leader of the group – was the one that took Hope Uzodimma to the Fulani Caliphate for the supplanting of Emeka Ihedioha, lends credence to the accusations of sabotage against the group.   

While in office, John  Nnia Nwodo – the group’s immediate past leader – masterminded Operation Python Dance – a military exercise that saw to the extrajudicial killing of hundreds of IPOB members. 

The emergence of George Obiozor, largely perceived as a clear manipulation by the Fulani Caliphate through their stooges in governorship seats – Hope Uzodimma and cross-carpeting Dave Umahi, seems to have landed the group in a cul-de-sac.
