No doubt the crisis fuelled by the allegations of certificate forgery against the sitting president of the Ohaneze Ndigbo, Lagos State Chapter, Chief Solomon Ogbonna, by an opposition, has cast a bad light on the Igbo nation. If not for anything else ,it brings to the force the fact that a lot of Igbos are not interested in all matters that create situation for the peace and progress of the generality of Ndigbo.
This reality gains credence against the background that a former president of ohaneze Ndigbo in lagos State ,Chief John Uche decided to generate trouble for the reigning state Chapter president by alleging that he committed certificate forgery before his emergence;Whereas such allegation was unnecessary, given the ground that academic credentials do not play any role in the process that qualifies anyone for the exalted seat .
Knowing that Chief Solomon Ogbonna met all the relevant pre-conditions for the office of the president, If possible National !
Apexreporters discovered, According to the rules of the world body of Ohaneze, concerning the election or electoral process, the “trouble or mischief maker” decided to raise issues against a growing leadership- which under 2years ensured that the Ohaneze Ndigbo, lagos,got a befitting secretariat for the convenient gathering and administration of Ndigbo.
His inimical action explored media strategies towards creating heat in the polity against a leadership already initiating ways to better the lots of Ndigbo.
Not only did he accused Chief Solomon Ogbonna of presenting false documents, he also alleged that he was a drug dealer who escaped from Australia, through some media reports and telephone discussions sponsored by him.He want to become GOD-FATHERISM to chief Solomon Ogbonna to be collecting every money coming from the Nigeria government to ohaneze Ndigbo at least 40% .
All these were unfounded claims meant to destabilise the course of leadership of Ndigbo. When all hands should be on deck to achieve a common front from where exploits in terms of cooperation, coexistence, development and progress is possible.
The development which has affected the free flow of leadership for weeks now is tantamount to a dance of shame in a competitive world where nations or ethnic groups are striving hard to improve the lots of their people. Moreso, the Ohaneze which remains the strongest pan-Igbos organisation in the world should be allowed to pursue it vision just like the people of Arewa and Oodua have allowed a United front or umbrella body which results to leadership or political gains for them .
That chief John Uche ,who once led the failed Apex Igbo organisation in lagos ,without a secretariat wanted to initiate a reign of terror against Chief Solomon’s (THE GREAT)leadership is an attempt to establish godfatherism in the system, especially as it was reported that he was making some huge financial demands as the only condition that will make him support this regime ;a situation which portends danger for Ndigbo when other nations in Nigeria are fusing forces to retain socio-political authority.
The Apexreporters online media from all indication, the Ohaneze has shown that never will the body be influenced or distracted by any one or group;its body language has proved its unwillingness to subject to the whims and caprice of detractors who do not wish the Igbos nation well,and would therefore never support courses that are geared towards the development of the Igbo nation.
