The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Wing Enugu State chapter has distanced itself from a publication which says the socio-political organisation is calling for a one million-man march to demand accountability from Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Speaking in Enugu yesterday, the youth leader of Ohaneze Ndigbo in Enugu State, Mazi Nnamdi Odo said he is hearing about the call for the first time, stressing that such call couldn’t have emanated from them as they have no reason to call for such yet.

Mazi Odo, who expressed shock attributed the publication to the actions of some impostors and renegades who were hired by a disgruntled aspirant in the state to score cheap political gain. He assured that they will go after such persons once their identities are known to them.

“I have no idea of such publication because there is only one Ohanaeze Ndigbo and I’m not aware of such call and there is no reason to protest against Governor Ugwuanyi.

“I am warning the impostors to desist from using the revered name of Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Wing to engage in political jobbing for desperate politicians in Enugu state ahead of 2023.

“We are aware that this has been stock in trade of some politicians in Enugu anytime elections draw near. They try to use all sort of makeshift groups and individuals to covertly and falsely attack the ruling government in the state. They did it during the last administration in the state. They have started again by using faceless and fake persons to impersonate Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth in Enugu state ahead of 2023. Nobody should take them serious,” Odo said.
