Leader of Ohanaeze ‘Youth Council’ an impostor, living in a state of mental delusion, parent body says



Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has described the leader of Ohanaeze Youth Council Worldwide, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, as an impostor and disowned his group.

Isiguzoro and his group had been parading themselves as the youth wing of the Igbo apex social-cultural organisation.

However, in a statement on Wednesday by the National Publicity Secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Prince Uche Achi-Okpaga, the parent body of the Igbo group said Isiguzoro was living in “an incontrovertible state of mental delusion.”

It also accused Isiguzoro of being sponsored by some elements, adding that he and “his so-called youth wing” of Ohanaeze have taken their joke too far and for too long.

National Publicity Secretary, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Prince Uche Achi-Okpaga also advised the media not to pay any more attention to the “impostor group”.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo reiterates that there is no organisation as Ohanaeze Youth Council recognized by Ndigbo and that the misguided so-called leader of the group, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, is a warped, egocentric and power-hungry mind who obviously is living in an incontrovertible state of mental delusion.

“If nothing else raises doubts about his bifurcated mind, how come not long ago he was the ‘president’ of the group but suddenly metamorphosis to its ‘president-general’.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo regrets the unpatriotic acts of some Igbo politicians sponsoring these equally unpatriotic irredentists shamelessly flying the kite for them towards 2023,” the statement read.

The statement further stated that if God willed that the next president of Nigeria should come from the Igbo stock in 2023, that Isiguzoro and his group, who allegedly were only seeking for their personal aggrandizement would not be the ones to cause it to come to pass.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo, once more, calls on prominent Igbo sons and daughters to stand up and call these recalcitrant boys to order, because it could have gone to court to stop their irreverent behaviour but for the same reason it refused to face other Igbo recalcitrant groups headlong in its mild skirmishes with them–a father does not quarrel with his children in the public.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo, therefore, distances itself from the infantile hallucinations of the group as it does not exist.

“The apex Igbo group calls on the press and members of the public to desist from using the official logo of Ohanaeze Ndigbo of a red cap and a feather when writing about or referring to the errant group as it is a great disservice to Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, so that when Ohanaeze Ndigbo speaks people will know it has spoken,” the statement added.
