Imo State chapter, leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has suspended 13 members of the organization indefinitely for allegedly violating some sections of its constitution.
The organization has also dismissed as false and misleading, recent media report of purported impeachment and vote of no confidence against its president, Dr. Ezechi Chukwu, and that a disciplinary committee would be set up soon to investigate the erring members.
This was disclosed by Ambassador Kenneth Nwachukwu-state secretary of the organization while briefing newsmen in Owerri said that only five, out of the 12 people who endorsed the purported “vote of no confidence petition” are authentic members of the executive committee of the body; while that the remaining 46 Exco members are solidly and firmly behind Chukwu’s leadership.
“This is an Imo Ohanaeze solemn resolution and it has nothing to do with Dr. Ezechi Chukwu as a person and our support for Obiozor is based on merit and the added value his leadership portends compared with other equally qualified sons of ours who showed interest.”
Nwachukwu also dismissed the false allegations that Ezechi Chukwu had concluded plans to engage non-registered members of the body as delegates to the forth coming election, stating that it is against the provisions of the organization
