The leadership of Ohanaeze Youth Council (The apex Body of Igbo Youth) is set for an irreconcilable showdown resulting from a visit to the Presidential Villa Abuja, where the names of key officers including the National Vice President (Delta) Odozi Nwozi dropped while that of girl friends, brothers and clandestine affiliates of the National President Okechukwu Isiguzoro were in the list.
Reliable sources stated that, the omission of Odozi’s name from the list was because of his insistence that due process should be followed in the administration and activities of the youth body, coupled with his quest for probity into the funds of the organisation especially since the groups August 27th visit to the first lady Dame Patience Jonathan.
When contacted for comment, the Anioma Youth Leader simply said “yes i was omitted from the list to the Villa, even though i was called by the President yesterday.” Speaking further, he stated, “I was shocked to find strangers been called for clearance while we were at the waiting room, only to be informed that it was an omission…how true that was, is left for you to imagine”
It should be recalled that during the August 27th Meeting with the Wife of the President, the National President Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and some member of his caucus brought their female acquaintances and clandestine affiliates to masquerade as members of the National Executive Council of the august youth body. Things took a downward trend when one of the girls brought in to satisfy the emotional needs of one of them was engaged in a public brawl with the Youth Leader of Ebonyi state Mazi Alex Okemiri.
Unconfirmed sources have it that the sum of one hundred thousand naira (N100,000) was given to the fair skinned lady who claimed she lost her phones after the fight with Okemiri, while the Ebonyi youth leader who played a prominent role in the election of the incumbent leader has been sidetracked from activities of the body since then..
