Ohananeze Ndigbo, the pan Igbo socoi-cultural organization will hold elections for her youth and women wings today Friday 20th and tomorrow Saturday 21st April, 2018 in Enugu, Enugu State.
It will be recalled that the Youth and Women wings of the organization were allegedly disbanded by apex body. The nationguardnews.com was reliably informed that alleged renegades from the Youth and Women wings of the disbanded Okechukwu Isiguzoro-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Wing and the Calistus Adimachkwu-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo Women Wing, went to Abuja for a purported endorsement of President Muhammad Buhari for a second tenure in office come 2018.
In his reaction, the chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, FCT Abuja, Odozi Nwodozi explained that the endorsement exercise being coordinated by an Enugu State-born head of Federal Government parastatal, describing it as, "the crystallization of the vituperatios of these discredited groups on the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo for the past one month.
" It should be noted that while Ndigbo are not against the candidacy of President  Buhari in the 2019 polls, since he has the Constitutional right for a second tenure, endorsement for any candidate including Buhari will be after wide consultations.
" However, it is important to let the public know that these characters engaging in the exercise are not qualified to do it as their mandates have since expired at the dissolution of their groups. And elections for both organs are scheduled for Friday 20th and Saturday 21st April, 2018 in Enugu where new leadership will emerge.
"For the Igbo persons in the present administration who have been financing and orchestrating the macabre dance of the discredited Youth and Women leaders for the past two months, their desperation for relevance and display of grip of Igbo sociopolitical structure should be guided, else they exhaust the little credence left in Igbo land", Nwodozi remarked.
