Listen to article

Information at's disposal confirmed that presidency officials, led by a Senior Special Assistant to the President, Chief Akachukwu is presently moving around the South East cities distributing heavy money to Ohaneze officials and members as to get endorsement for President Goodluck Jonathan in the forth coming election. The officials as gathered were in Enugu yesterday and are due back in Abuja today, having come from Imo, Abia and Ebonyi States. Top secret information indicates that the senior Ohaneze members have assured Chief Akachukwu of their endorsement.

This is coming on the heels of a disruption of Igbo political forum slated to be held at the Imo Concorde Hotel in Owerri on Monday 27th of October 2010 [click here to readmore on the disruption">. The disruption which was credited to the same Special Assistant to the President, Chief Akachukwu, was reported to have been followed by another disruption of Igbo gathering in Abuja – just two later at the ICC center opposite the Radio House in Garkin, Abuja.

Both the President and the Governor of Imo State have denied involvement in the embarrassing disruption of the Igbo event. The governor in his denial pointed possible blame to the opposition of the Igbo group as the culprit. In the President's denial he indicated that he had no reason to disrupt the summit – since he had already bagged the endorsement of the South East geopolitical region - and so was not concerned that the group may endorse another presidential candidate at the conclusion of the summit.

The Nigeria police and the other associated security agencies used to halt entrance into the Hotel, in their response to the eminent Igbo personalities and elders, pointed to 'orders from above' as the reason for their actions.

Be that as it may, additional information available to indicate that following the foiled summit at Owerri, the supposed keynote Speaker Jim Nwobodo began to receive threats from the presidency. Former Governor of the old Anambra State recently won a case in court that returned his bank [Savannah Bank] to him. And the presidency is reportedly threatening the former governor with the withdrawal/reversal of the same judgment, if he does not play ball. Sources close to the former told our correspondents that he is on the verge of backing out of the group. He is said to be frightened.

In the coming days, the top members of Ohaneze are expected to begin to endorse President Goodluck Jonathan for Presidency 2011.
