The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, has warned against what it termed as a campaign of calumny against Igbo leaders.
The national president of the group, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in a statement yesterday, said the youth council was watching how its leaders were being assaulted, warning that such should stop immediately.
The statement reads: “The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth council worldwide has been drawn to the continuous assault on the Grand Patron of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Senator T. A. Orji.
“We want to advise those behind the current campaign of calumny to desist from the action or we will make them face the wrath of Igbo youths.
“Senator T. A. Orji has paid his dues, having single-handedly sponsored the activities of Ohanaeze Ndigbo for eight years. He has empowered Igbo youths and has sponsored over eight bills in the Senate.
“He is a worthy leader of Igbo nation and we will not tolerate any person or persons to gang up against him. We will declare whoever does that as a persona grata in Igbo land.
“We urge the Senator to continue to give quality representation to the people of Abia central zone and the Ndigbo in general”.
