OHANAEZE WARNS BOKO HARAM
Ohanaze Youths have warned the Boko Haram sect that, any further attempts to subvert the sovereign position of Nigeria under President Goodluck Jonathan, will necessitate the redefinition of safety lines as was in the case of 1960's.
Issuing this warning during a press conference at Amawbia, Anambra State yesterday, to protest the nullification of Hon. Tony Ezekwelu's election, a member of Board Of Trustees of the Ohaneze Youth Council, Mazi Okwu Okwu, said that if Jonathan is frustrated out of power, Nigeria will cease to exist.
According to Okwu, 'It is time we allowed those dully elected by the people to rule. The case of Hon. Ezekwelu, whose mandate was taken away from him in an unjust judgment, can be likened to our President's. We therefore state that if there is no Jonathan there will be no Nigeria'.
Also protesting the nullification of Ezekwelu's election, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), represented by its Vice President, National Affairs, Comrade Frank Nwandu, said that the group was shocked to learn that the Justice Yetunde-led panel cancelled what he termed a free and fair election, pointing out that NANS considers it a conspiracy and perversion of justice.
Similarly, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) National Youth Leader, Comrade Ogbonna Okpara, said that the nullification of Ezekwelu's election was disgusting to all stakeholders in APGA and demanded that the mandate be returned to the original winner.
It will be recalled that the Justice Yetunde-led elections tribunal, sitting in Awka, nullified Tony Ezekwelu's election on the November 10 and awarded it to Action Congress of Nigeria's Barr. Ebele Obi.
