Abakaliki—Apex Igbo organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, yesterday described the recent political activities of its suspended Secretary General, Uche Okwukwu as deceitful and detestable, saying the President would not want to work with a traitor like him.
In a statement issued in Abakaliki by its National Publicity Secretary, Uche Achi-Okpagha, the group stated that the former NEC member was suspended for breaching his duties and prostituting his position.
The statement read in part: “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.”
