The apex Igbo socio-cultural  organization Ohanaeze Ndigbo, says, no court injunction can stop it’s election on Sunday in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

The out gone president of the organization in Anambra State, Chief Damian Okeke -Ogene, told reporters Friday that the idea of going to court to stop election had been the problem with Ndigbo

Okeke -Ogene spoke after the new executive of Ohanaeze, led by Emeka Udodeme emerged in the state

The new executive would pilot the affairs of the body for the next four years and would move to Imo State today (Saturday)  for the Sunday national election

“Our people are found of it. Have you heard of such thing happening in the North or Southwest?  Forget their macabre dance, it will fail. Ohanaeze will elect it’s officers come Sunday,” he said

The election, which took place in Awka, was supervised by the organization’s national delegates, men of the Nigeria Police and the Department of  Security Service, DSS, among other stakeholders across the state

The newly elected officers include  ; Udodeme Emeka Festus – President, Barr. Titus Akpudo – Vice-President, Okafor Chukwudubem Emmanuel – Secretary, Iwuchukwu Godwin – Treasurer, Nwafor Frederick Sunday – Financial Secretary, Omatali Samuel Udogalanya – Assistant Secretary.
