The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has set up a three-member committee to wade into the feud between Governor Dave Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Sen Anyim Pius Anyim.

The committee members include Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Igwe Alfred Achebe and Sen. Ken Nnamani

The President General of the organisation, Chief Nnia Nwodo, announced this at their general meeting (Ime Obi) held at Nike Lake Resort Enugu.

Chief Nwodo described as unfortunate media war by the two Igbo leaders in the past weeks, and charged the committee to stop at nothing to reconcile them.

The organisation also received and approved the report of Prof Osita Ogbu-led Alaigbo Stabilization Fund Steering Committee.

The President General said under the arrangement, Ndigbo Development Foundation and Ndigbo Investment will be set up to serve as a catalyst for the development of Igbo land.

On the forthcoming general election of the organisation slated for January 10, 2021, Nwodo announced Electoral Committee saddled with the responsibility of conducting elections into various offices.

He appealed to Ndigbo to be diplomatic in all forms of agitations for the sake of national unity.

The Governor of Imo State, Sen. Hope Uzodinma, urged the technical committee to come up with implementable proposals that will benefit Igbos at home and in diaspora and assured that Imo whose turn it is to produce next President General will ensure that a credible candidate emerges.

He announced that South East Governors approved a parting gift of a Prado jeep to Nwodo and Igwe Alfred Achebe, the outgoing Chairman of South East Traditional Rulers Council respectively.

The “Imeobi”, which is the highest decision-making organ of Ohanaeze, was attended by notable Igbo sons and daughters, including Governor Umahi, who was represented by Ebonyi Deputy Governor, Dr Kelechi Igwe.
