The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has condemned Governor Nyesom Wike’s comment over Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State removal.
Ohanaeze said this yesterday in a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and made available to Journalists in Kaduna.
“Any Governor who is instrumental to displace a fellow Governor will be assessed by Nigerians at the end of 2023, how can anyone derive happiness from other people’s agonies and tragedies.
“We are marveled at how anyone could manipulate the judiciary towards getting a favorable verdict just to score cheap political goals and popularity”.
“We are reviewing the legal implications and condemned the trendy video of the Governor’s comments of being instrumental in the Abuja High Court Judgements that sacked Ebonyi Governor, Deputy Governor, and House of Assembly members.
” Our suspicion was reinforced by the open standpoint of Governor Wike in Ebonyi leadership crisis, this is a confirmation that there is a grand plot to destabilize southeast, but unfortunately coming from a man who denied his identity as an Igbo”.
“We call on sponsors of the grand scheme and conspiracy to remove the Ebonyi Governor, to withdraw as such remains a subversive and provocative invasion aimed at distracting the southeast from the 2023 presidential election.
Mazi Isiguzoro said “Ndigbo will forgive the sponsors of Umahi’s sack if they retreat and asks forgiveness to Umahi, but disastrous consequences await them if they continue in these futile expeditions”.
