The crisis rocking the apex Igbo socio-political body, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, escalated on Sunday, as the youth wing of the association, Ohanaeze Youth Council, announced the 'suspension' of the President General, Nnia Nwodo.

The development came on the heel of the announcement of plans by the National Executive Council of Ohanaeze to conduct elections into executive positions of the youth and women wings.

The Nwodo-led NEC is insisting that the Okechukwu Isiguzoro-led youth wing had been disbanded by the Ime-Obi, Ohanaeze’s highest decision making organ, in 2016 while the tenure of the women wing had expired in 2017.

Before announcing Nwodo’s suspension on Sunday, the Ohanaeze Youth Council had, on April 2, 2018, passed a vote of no confidence in Nwodo, and demanded his appearance before a ‘disciplinary committee’ over a number of allegations levelled against him.

The Ohanaeze youth wing led by Isiguzoro, accused Nwodo of running the apex Igbo socio-political body as a ‘one-man show'.

Claiming that Nwodo was parading himself as a ‘Generalisimo,’ they alleged that the former minister was using the office to further his political ambition.
