Apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has reacted to speculations that the group called for the inclusion of Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo among those to be served impeachment notice by the Senate.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo in a statement issued by its spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia, debunked the claim, saying it never made any such call.

Recall that the Nigerian Senate had threatened to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari over the spate of insecurity in the country.

But Ohanaeze Ndigbo disassociated itself from the press release where the call was purportedly made, describing those behind it as “are mischief makers, impostors, charlatans”.

The group added that the people behind the call were “lose media navigators who leech on the invaluable footprints of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to issue press releases for narrow, perverse and illicit pecuniary interests”.

The statement read, “The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has come been drawn to a bizarre and reckless publication currently circulating in the media indicating that Ohanaeze Ndigbo calls on “the National Assembly to include the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN in the impeachment threat on the President Muhammadu Buhari”.

“Ordinarily, Ohanaeze Ndigbo would have ignored the said press release, but silence in this circumstance will tend to give validity to such a fallacy by the unsuspecting public. It is therefore necessary to inform that those behind the fake press release are mischief makers, impostors, charlatans and lose media navigators who leech on the invaluable footprints of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to issue press releases for narrow, perverse and illicit pecuniary interests.

“We wish to inform the general public that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has neither contemplated nor issued such a reckless statement on the person of Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.
