Register Ohaneze as a political party, APC chieftain taunts Igbo leaders

Ohanaeze asks Ndigbo to ignore Nnamdi Kanu and vote during 2019 elections

Alhaji Mumaaki Unagha, presidential aspirant of All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019, has taunted the apex South-East socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze, telling them to register the group as a political party.

Unagha said Ohaneze should be registered in good time as a political party in order to seek elective positions since they never see anything good in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and his party.

In a press statement issued on Monday, Unagha said; “Let me call or advise the leadership of the Igbo organisation to register with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as a political party to seek elective positions.

“They should not hide under any guise; they should be bold, free to do so.”

Unagha added that given its frequent attacks on the present administration of President Buhari, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has not only abandoned the principle for which the organisation was formed, they are more in partisan politics and the role of opposition.

The development comes after a group, Alaigbo Development Forum (ADF), has called on the people of Southeastern Nigeria to be ready to defend themselves against alleged impending attacks by those it called jihadist organisations.

The group led by Professor Uzodimma Nwala stated this in a communiqué it made available to newsmen on Sunday. It said the communiqué came following exhaustive discussions by its members.
