Igbo-menThis declaration followed the accusation by the group against the Governor of Imo State, Chief Rochas Okorocha of sponsoring a faction of Ohanaeze bent on distabilizing the body.

President General of Ohanaeze, Chief Enwo Gary Igariwey who made this disclosure yesterday while addressing newsmen at the secretariat, said, “the allegation that we took bribe from the presidency was baseless as the adoption of the incumbent President was borne out of wide consultations with various interest groups in Igbo land.

“The interest of Ndigbo would be more protected if President Jonathan is re- elected. It is only Jonathan that would implement the report of the National Constitutional Conference. The creation of nine states in each of the six geo- political zones in the country is contained in the Confab report.”
