“The Ohaneze president is consulting widely with the different tribes and ethnic groupings in the country.

“By the time he is done, other parts of Nigeria will know the need to fully integrate the Igbos into mainstream of Nigerian politics.

“What he is doing at the moment is to restore the dignity and values of Igbo nation,” he stressed.

Okeke-Ogene said Ohaneze leadership is motivated to inspire unity among the Igbos and rekindle the Igbo spirit of ‘be your brothers’ keeper’.
