Ohanaeze Chieftain Denies Private Meeting with Obasanjo
Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu
Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has debunked rumors that he held a private discussion with the former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo during his recent visit to Owerri, Imo State capital.

Although Iwuanyanwu confirmed that Chief Obasanjo held a closed-door meeting with leaders of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, he stated "Apart from the meeting involving other Ohanaeze stakeholders, there was no secret meeting between him and Chief Obasanjo.

The clarification was contained in a remark given by the Ohanaeze's General President, Iwuanyanwu when featured in an interview program on Arise TV.

The Secretary-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Okey Emuchay, had earlier stated that the meeting involved discussions on “issues of mutual interest", even though he failed to give an account of the topics that topped the discussion.

Emuchay stated, “Issues of mutual interest were discussed, and the Ohanaeze PG informed Chief Obasanjo that Nigeria should erect monuments in his name for the sacrifices he has made.

“Iwuanyanwu had recalled Obasanjo’s role in ending the civil war with the slogan of no victor no vanquished; repayment of huge external debts and recovery of the economy during his time as President.

“He informed the former President that the Igbo nation will bestow honor on him appropriately.”

The former President was accompanied by Chief Oyewole Fasawe; while some Igbo leaders and Ohanaeze chieftains who were at the meeting included Emuchay; former Minister for Aviation, Kema Chikwe; Bishop Sunday Onuoha, Fidelis Ozichukwu; and Chief Tony Ukasanya, among others.
