Problems beset Enugu youth organisation

01 March 2016, 20:35Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Ohanaeze Youth Council, the Enugu organisation, is beset by internal problems that have culminated in calls for the suspension of its leadership over an alleged plethora of crimes.

The group has recommended the suspension of President Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike Emmanuel and the Assistant Treasurer, Kingley Chidozie.

There has been a recommendation to banish Chika Nzelu, Chuks Ibegbu, Ogbonnaya Obasi and Thompson Ohia for ten years.

A lack of accountability in the funds of the organisation since August 2014, has been alleged while Isiguzoro and Emmanuel are accused of personalizing the organisation’s buses.

It is alleged the President, the National Secretary, and the Assistant National Treasurer Kingsley gave one John Nwobiala an award as the Igbo Man of the Year 2015 without consulting the organisation while the Secretary has confiscated a laptop donated to the body by a well wisher.

Emmanuel is said to have consistently shown lack of capacity in his duties by not keeping records of the proceedings of meetings.

The President and Secretary have allegedly been making withdrawals without consent of the organisation.

It is said efforts to get their side of the story have been fruitless.

Amid such findings, Ohanaeze Youth Council has recommended that Deputy President, Arthur Obiora, should take over the leadership of the organisation, while the Assistant Secretary, Stanley Nwaka steps in as Secretary.
