Ekweremadu’s Trials: Ohanaeze Sends Strong Warning to Tinubu 

The youth wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Ohanaeze Youth Council, has accused APC leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of masterminding a plot to remove Ike Ekweremadu as the deputy senate president of Nigeria.

    “Being fully aware that the present plot is being orchestrated by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, we ask him to re-trace his steps forthwith or we shall declare him an enemy of Ndigbo.”

    In a statement issued in Umuahia, the OYC National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said the plot to remove Ekweremadu was an affront on the Igbo nation which would not be tolerated.

    Isiguzoro, however, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to caution Tinubu and other anti-Ekweremadu forces in order to avoid actions that might further overheat the polity.

    He said, “We are aware that Buhari is under intense pressure to endorse the ‘Ekweremadu must go plot.’ This is the time for the President to prove that he belongs to nobody, Tinubu inclusive, but that he belongs to everybody, Ndigbo inclusive.”

    Also, another Igbo group, Izu-Umunna Cultural Association, asked the APC to accept the election of Ekweremadu as the deputy senate president as the will of God.
