Ohanaeze skins attack on Governor Ugwuanyi, tells agitators to join political party | The Guardian Nigeria News

Socio-cultural organization Apex Igbo, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Tuesday rebuked the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), for the latter’s attack on Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

He recalls that the Enugu State Chapter of MASSOB, in a statement by its State Coordinator, Mazi Daniel Onyebuchi, issued a poor performance verdict on Governor Ugwuanyi. He went ahead to ask the electorate to reject the governor at the polls in 2023.

While reacting, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide National Chairman Mazi Okwu Nnabuike said it was quite strange that a Biafran agitation group had set up as a performance rating agency.

He said Governor Ugwuanyi remains the most youth-friendly Governor Enugu has ever produced, based on the number of young people currently holding one position or the other in state or local government.

Okwu, who questioned the criteria used by MASSOB to arrive at its verdict, described the authors of the publication as “agents paid to destabilize Enugu State”.

He said: “The political adventurers who now hide under the banner of the agitators are back. This time, their signatures and identities are everywhere for everyone to see.

“Isn’t it curious that right after they are recruited, their first mission is to launch a vicious attack on the Governor of Enugu State? This is the very first press release from this Enugu coordinator of MASSOB, and it was about Governor Ugwuanyi and not about Biafra.

“Their assertion is even petty because according to them, ‘some roads in the capital are in poor condition. The New Market Road roundabout, Gulf Estate Garden Avenue, etc., are all at the mercy of God. How on earth does the poor condition of both roads translate into a total Governor failure? What about the hundreds of other roads built by the administration led by Ugwuanyi?

“When did MASSOB abandon its efforts for the realization of Biafra and now resort to analyzing the performance of the governors of the zone? It will be better for them to join their donors in political parties than to hide under the banner of MASSOB”.

He went further saying that “Enugu has remained unrivaled in terms of peace in the entire South East, but some people who are comfortable calling white people black would not appreciate that. They want to take Enugu back to the past.

“The Enugu youth have never been so favored by any other government before this administration, in terms of appointment and empowerment, both inside and outside the country’s shores, but they have not found a good reason to congratulate the governor.

“The state also came out on top recently in primary health care, beating every other state except the FCT. This is in addition to outstanding achievements in education, as evidenced by the latest SSCE results. All of this is the product of massive investments in health and education.

“To the extent that we do not fulfill the mandate of the government, we cannot pretend to ignore these achievements which are in the public domain. Nor would we fold our hands and watch anyone set fire to Enugu State. The youth of Ohanaeze are therefore warning political jobbers and their known paymasters to leave the peaceful state of Enugu alone.”
