Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has said that Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi is more of an Igbo man than Joe Igbokwe.
Ohanaeze stated this in response to the former Rivers State Governor’s criticism by Igbokwe.
The Igbo group, in a statement signed by Okechukwu Isiguzoro, its Secretary-General, noted that Amaechi is a registered member of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the Rivers State chapter since the year 2000.
According to the statement: “Verbal diarrhoea and vituperative predispositions of Joe Igbokwe against Chibuike Amaechi is an act of timidity and cowardice.
“Igbokwe’s unprovoked onslaught aimed at the Minister of Transportation should be investigated as it’s organized rogue operations of political musketeers, as its defamatory, calumnious and slanderous”
“This is our verdict, Chibuike Amaechi is a bonafide Igbo man, and there is no reason why anyone would incite crisis just for cheap political goals, the issue raised on abandoned properties in Rivers state after Biafra war is a hoax and diversionary, as based on the facts before us, there is no record of any Ikwerre man or woman that benefited from the obnoxious policy and nobody should blackmail an Ikwerre with the abandoned property saga,”
