…This resolution was taking by Ohanaeze Ndigbo of Lagos State and Solomon Ogbonna (Aguene) in Lagos.
It is most unfortunate that we have been confronted recently with the publications of mischief makers and enemies of progress concerning the academic certificate of the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State, Chief Solomon Ogbonna (Aguene)
Ordinary, we would have overlooked the publication because the points raised by the mischief makers were inconsequential, baseless and illogical. More so, their allegations were sentimentalised, not founded on proof and evidence of facts.
However, we have decided to react because it is always good to set the records straight for purposes of history and also to let the general public know the simple truth about the certificate allegation and who actually the principal mischief maker is on Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos State.
Before we proceed, we want to start by making it very clear that the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos does not require academic certificate to lead Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos State; which is why he never presented or tendered any certificate to anyone or group because certificate is not needed to run the organization. What is required is speaking Igbo Language fluently, Common wisdom, Intelligence, Human Relations and above all Altruism. As you can confirm, the Man of the moment Chief Solomon Ogbonna has given Ndigbo a very huge voice in Lagos. His personal touch to the lives of Ndigbo in Lagos state is second to none.
It is therefore unnecessary to join issues bordering on blackmail and distraction by a set of disgruntled person/s
Be that as it may, since there was never a time Chief Solomon Ogbonna gave or tendered any academic certificate to anyone during or after the election that brought him into Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership position because there was absolutely no reason to do so. It then means that the mischief makers have some explanation to make to the entire Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos State concerning the source of the certificate they are peddling and carrying about to undermine the reputation of the president and Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State at large.
Having said that let it be known that the principal mischief maker Chef John Uche who claims to be the founder of Ohanaezez Ndigbo in Lagos State was never the founder. Even if he was the founder, does it give him the impetus to demolished or set fire to the house he claimed to have built? That is insane of the highest order. John Uche the imposter was even excommunicated by Prof. Ben Nwabueze the then leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide before Chief Nzewi became the president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State. And John Uche remained excommunicated from all Ohanaeze activities worldwide before Chief Oliver Akubueze took over from Nzewi.
Records had it that Chief Oliver Akubueze went to Ohanaeze Ndigbo Headquarters, Enugu several times pleading tirelessly on behalf of John Uche before Enugu granted Chief Oliver’s request and release John Uche from excommunication bondage. The reason John Uche was excommunicated were linked to extortion, Indiscriminate installation of kingship/Eze in Lagos State, embezzlement of Ohanaeze funds, questionable, immoral, atrocious, abomination, unspeakable and adulterous behaviours with Ohanaeze married women, sabotaging Igbo agenda among others.
We have gathered here today to tell Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide and the world as a well as the Elders in Council of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State, Ndieze, the executives, chairmen, women, youths and the entire members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos state have taken firm decision never to allow John Uche toil with our peace anymore! Never to allow John Uche set ablaze the house we all suffered to build. Never to allow John continue destroying our values.
In order to achieve the desire peace in Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State, we have unanimously decided to excommunicate John Uche henceforth from all activities of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos state.
Henceforth John Uche will never be allowed to attend Ohanaeze activities or event anymore. No Ohanaeze Ndigbo member will eat or dinne with him, no one will even drink ordinary water from John Uche or give him to drink.
No Ohanaeze member shall buy from John Uche or sell to him; No Ohanaeze Ndigbo member shall belong to or share the same organization, association or platform with him.
No member shall visit John Uche or receive him as a visitor, no matter what the condition might be.
No Ohanaeze Ndigbo member shall enter the same car, bus or any type of vehicle with John Uche and any member of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State members, Ndi or Onye Eze no matter his or her status or position that goes contrary to the above listed conditions shall cease to be Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State member and all his or her rights, position, grown and entitlement forfeited and withdrawn.
