Abia Gov Tussle: Ohanaeze warns S-East elders, others to give peace a chance in Abia State

Ikpeazu and Ogah
As the tussle for the Abia state governorship position lingers, Ohanaeze Youth Council has warned a group known as South East Elders to stop making statements capable of causing A breach of peace in the state.

The youth group insisted that since Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu has filed a notice of appeal and motion for execution against the judgment delivered by Justice Okon Abang, all parties and their supporters should give peace a chance. In a statement signed by its Chairman of State Chairmen, Mazi Alex Okemini, the youth council stated that the situation in Abia has thrown up some faceless groups who are being sponsored to cause a crisis and urged the security agencies to investigate any groups behind any inciting statement.

It will be recalled that unknown groups had recently threatened to invade the Government House in Umuahia if Uche Ogah was not sworn in and warned that such comments cannot emanate from an Igbo group recognized by Ohanaeze Ndigbo. According to the statement, “On the tussle over the governorship position in Abia state, we are warning groups like the so called South-East Elders and another one who parades itself as Ngwa bu otu to give peace a chance in Abia State. Gov. Ikpeazu has appealed the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The courts should be allowed to do their job. The governor has exercised his fundamental rights and no amount of propaganda will solve the situation in the state. We warn those who are working to destabilize Abia to refrain from such acts. “Dr Ikpeazu has the mandate of Abians and until the appeal court decides otherwise, he remains the Governor of Abia State. 

There is no constitutional crisis in Abia state as the fake group implied but rather, an attempt by desperados to carry out a civilian coup using the toga of a court ruling  that is under challenge at a superior court.” Ohanaeze youths called on Ikpeazu not to be deterred by the antics of the group and their sponsors, stressing that it would not allow a coup against Abia people.
