The Ohanaeze-lsiguzoro peace plan, based on the report of the bishops

Posted by

Mazi Okechukwu lsiguzoro, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s factional secretary-general, has demanded an investigation into the conclusions and suggestions made by the College of lgbo bishops in an effort to bring about lasting harmony within the group.

In light of Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu’s misinformation campaign, Isiguzoro stated that it was critical to set the record straight for the sake of future generations.

He signed a statement that 460PLAY was able to get on Saturday, which contained this information.

It is vital, according to the statement, to dispel misunderstandings and to face the problems head-on with bravery and wisdom.

The need of addressing internal disagreement for the greater benefit of Ndigbo has been recognized by the Southeast Governors from February 2021, according to lsiguzoro, who have not let the problem inside Ohanaeze pass them by.

With Chief Iwuanyanwu receiving a full report on the College of Igbo Bishop’s findings and recommendations into the Ohanaeze Ndigbo crisis on January 31, 2023, in Enugu State, following the sad death of George Obiozor, the College of Bishops, headed by Archbishop Emeritus, His Grace, AV. Obinna of the Owerri Archdiocese of the Catholic Church and the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Umuahia of the Methodist Church, His Grace, Most Rev Dr. Chibuzo Opoko, intervened in an effort to restore tranquility.

A combined Imeobi and General Assembly could not be convened since Iwuanyanwu’s accession did not follow the constitutional conditions stated in Section 11 of the Ohanaeze constitution.

“Factionalism is a major concern since the presidency is about to be handed over from Imo State to Rivers State on January 11, 2025, and the current term of the president is coming to an end on January 10, 2025.

“Resistant attempts to reconcile with Iwuanyanwu’s side point to hidden political reasons driving divergent objectives.

“The plots to get around the constitutional requirements for a smooth handover of power show a complete lack of respect for the integrity of democracy and the solidarity of the Ndigbo people.

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has demanded that the College of Igbo Bishops’ report and recommendations be reviewed immediately in order to prevent a situation that may go beyond the 2025 Ohanaeze election.

A number of Igbo groups are prepared to take legal action in the event that efforts are made to lengthen tenures or undermine the established rules in order to benefit themselves.

The spirit of togetherness and making amends for the past is being undermined by concerted attempts to prevent the lawful election of a President General from Rivers State in 2025.

Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu and all other interested parties must work together in good faith to ensure a smooth handover of power from Imo State to Rivers State.

Those that care only about themselves, not the Ndigbo people as a whole, are retrograde if they try to block this harmonic development.

“The next election offers a one-of-a-kind chance to unite and include all people in Rivers State, which has been divided along cultural and identity lines since the Biafran Civil War’s aftermath.

The resolution to adopt the recommendations made by the College of Igbo Bishops is an expression of Ohanaeze’s continued dedication to the values of democracy, openness, and togetherness, which would hopefully lead the group to a more peaceful future.

May unity and harmony prevail, and may we all come together in pursuit of the common goal of building Ohanaeze Ndigbo that is stronger and more united.
