Charles Nzechi
A group, Ibeku Youth Assembly on Wednesday reaffirmed their earlier position that Ohuhu clan in Umuahia north local government area of Abia state should be allowed to produce next representative for Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency based on the charter of equity that has been existing in the constituency.

This follows an alleged meeting convened by a group of youths, said to have been sponsored and hired by a prominent Ibeku politician, kicking the position of Ibeku Youth Assembly on the endorsement.

The President of (IYA), Mr.Kingsley Nwokeukwu flanked by the Secretary, Ihechi Chinedu Zik and other executive members of the group stated this on Wednesday in Umuahia, the state capital said in the interest of equity, justice and fairness, our brothers from Ohuhu clan should be supported, because other clans in Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal constituency, like Umuopara, Ibeku, Ikwuano, Old Umuahia and Ikwuano again had taken their shots.

He said:"Last week we issued a communique which was published in some of the national dailies where we, the Ibeku youths threw our weight behind our brothers and sisters from ohuhu to take a shot for Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency seat come 2019".

"To set the record straight, we were not bribed or induced to endorse Ohuhu clan for the seat. Based on the charter of equity which has been in existence in Ikwuano/Umuahia, we believe it is the turn of Ohuhu to be there. It will be disservice to us and ohuhu people if they are denied the seat".

"We are reaffirming our earlier position, that is Ohuhu son or daughter should be supported in the interest of peace and fairness".

On why the youth group endorsed Mr. Charles Nzechi for the seat of Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal constituency seat, Nwokeukwu said Nzechi was adopted and endorsed for the office based on his antecedents in the area of philanthropic services, youth empowerment, education and business.

He explained that Ibeku youths have total confidence on Charles Nzechi, saying he(Nzechi)will bring to bear his wealth of experiences by ensuring democracy dividends gets to the doorsteps of the people of Ikwuano/Umuahia.

Nwokeukwu dismissed allegations that Ibeku Youth Assembly was induced to carry out the endorsement, saying that the endorsement was carried out after thorough assessment and his track records.

"Let me make it clear that Ibeku Youth Assembly was not induced in anyway to endorse, Mr. Charles Nzechi. Charles Nzechi as you know and believe that he is a young man, who have empowered hundreds of our youths through his foundation, Charles Nzechi Foundation. After, thorough assessment, we found out that he has what it takes to be at the federal House of Representatives".

He, however said the group has uncovered an alleged plan by a faceless group, to initiate his arrest him and other executive members of Ibeku Youth Assembly  stance on power shift.

" We are not perturbed. We had that they have hatcheted plan to arrest me and other executives of the group. We are carrying out our lawful activities, no amount of intimidation, harassment and name-calling will deter us from standing on truth".
