The apex Igbo organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has stated that its Secretary General, Uche Okwukwu was suspended from office for engaging in “deceitful and detestable political acts.”
Uche Achi-Okpagha, the association’s National Publicity Secretary, in a statement, said President Muhammadu Buhari would not want to work with a traitor like Okwukwu.
He stated that the former NEC member was suspended for breaching his duties and prostituting his position.
“Uche Okwukwu’s recent antecedents depict clearly that he is on political suicide mission. “Shortly before the presidential and NASS elections, he was suspended by the National Executive Committee, NEC, of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide for breaching his duties and prostituting his position.
“He belittled himself and became the black sheep out of the 24-member NEC of Ohanaeze Ndigbo whose decision could not be thwarted by one single dissenting voice.
“He arranged with people who could well be addressed as motor park touts and paid a solidarity visit to President Buhari and went further to address an APC rally which went viral, all on behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“As if the above were not enough, he went on to congratulate President Buhari on behalf of Ohanaeze even as he is still on suspension.
“We pity him because he thinks that such deceitful and detestable political manoeuvres will quickly attract appointment from the presidency. Who told him that President Buhari would want to work with a traitor? Instead, he is on a self inflicted precipitous political peregrination,” the statement said.
