  Leadership of the umbrella Igbo body, made the position of the race known in the memorandum it submitted to the senator Femi Okoromu led Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue during a stakeholders session held on Monday in Enugu.

Some prominent Igbo political leaders, who graced the event, such as former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, had thrown his weight behind the Ohanaeze position.

Meanwhile, all the five Governors of the south east states, which includes, Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, and Imo   were conspicuously absent at the occasion which took place at Toskana Hotel, Enugu.

Chief Gary Igariwey, president General of  OHANAEZE Ndigbo,  who presented the memorandum, stated that to ensure the legality and integrity of the conference, it should be go through an Act of the National Assembly NASS.

“It is recommended that the outcome of the Conference would be subjected to a national refrendum/plebecite and thereafter, without alteration, becomes the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” He said

Continuing,” to ensure its legality and integrity, the conference should be instituted through an Act of the National Assembly. Mr President should as matter of urgency send an Executive Bill to the National Assembly to legalise the conference” he advised.

He also recommended a total of 360 delegates for the conference, saying that 60 delegates should be selected from each of the 6 geo-political zones in the Nigeria.


Igariwey, further advised the president not to allow the conference to go the way of previous ones and warned that the consequences of failure would be too ghastly to contemplate.
