…Ohanaeze urges youths to desist from hate speeches

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state, on Thursday, said that the Igbo people have unanimously risen to pursue a venture that would reposition them for greater prosperity and development.

Ikpeazu made this known while speaking at the inauguration of elected officials of Abia chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Umuahia.

Speaking further, he assured the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo that his administration would support the organisation both at Local, State and national level and promised to provide the State with a secretariat and vehicle.

He urged youths and other Abia residents to forward their complaints, petitions and wishes to Ohanaeze Ndigbo, assuring that such issues would be properly channelled to government at all levels by Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

The Governor also expressed confidence that with the calibre of officials in the current Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership, there's hope for Ndigbo in the country and called for all to support the leadership, maintaining that Barr. John Nnia Nwodo is very much qualified to speak for Ndigbo at all occasions.

In his remarks , Elder Juctice R C Ajuzieogu, the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Abia chapter, said that the organisation would work hard to ensure that Igbo’s culture, traditions and language were resuscitated.

Ajuzieogu added that under his watch Ohanaeze would not hesitate in promoting any cause that would favour the people of Abia and Igbo land at large. He also commended the Governor for his effort and commitment in repositioning the state, noting that the state has been turned into a construction site.

He said: "Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, has turned Abia into a huge construction site from Abia North to Abia central and Abia south. He has defied the insurmountable Ife Obara flood disaster in Aba.

"Made in Aba products are receiving national and international buy-outs while peace abounds in the state.

" What about the the well-sited flyover at Osisioma junction along Aba/Enugu expressway. We cannot thank you enough. We join millions of your admirers to charge you to continue to deliver democratic dividends to Abians.

Chief Nnia Nwodo, the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in his remark, expressed dismay with the spate of hate speech on social media by Igbo youths under the guise of secession agitation. He said that making inciting speech was capable of causing crisis which could lead to mass violence in the nation. He added that it was pertinent to respect constituted authorities.
