The following were also published by the PUNCH on this matter

“The crisis rocking the apex Igbo socio-political body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, escalated on Sunday as the youth wing of the association, Ohanaeze Youth Council, announced the ‘suspension’ of the President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo.

“The leadership of the women wing of association was part of the decision to suspend Nwodo, according to a statement made available to journalists in Enugu.

“Before announcing Nwodo’s suspension on Sunday, the Ohanaeze Youth Council had, on April 2, 2018, passed a vote of no confidence in Nwodo, and demanded his appearance before a ‘disciplinary committee’ over a number of allegations levelled against him.

“The Ohanaeze youth wing led by Isiguzoro, accused Nwodo of running the apex Igbo socio-political body as a ‘one-man show.’

“Claiming that Nwodo was parading himself as a ‘Generalisimo,’ they alleged that the former minister was using the office to further his political ambition.

“The OYC insinuated that Nwodo was working for the presidential ambition of a former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, for whom, they claimed, he was positioning one of his brothers as the running mate.

They equally accused Nwodo of ‘illegality,’ noting that, contrary to the rules of the organisation, he was using  a Forum of States’ Presidents (presidents of Ohanaeze state chapters) to override the Ohanaeze NEC”.
