OHANAEZE Ndigbo has stated that the Igbo will support only political parties and candidates with the interest of Ndigbo in their agenda in the 2019 general elections.

President General of the body, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, said that their support will only go to a presidential candidate with manifest programme that would address the multifarious interests and challenges confronting Ndigbo in Nigeria. Nwodo spoke yesterday, at a reception organized by the Enugu Chapter of the group in his honour on arrival at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, after a trip to the United States of America, where he and his deputy  went to inaugurate the South Carolina chapter of Ohanaeze. Nwodo stressed that although the group was a non-political association, it would advise Ndigbo to vote for a candidate of the political party that has the best programmes for Ndigbo in 2019. 

Nwodo also expressed anger at the deplorable state of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, saying that deliberate neglect of the airport, the only international airport in the zone, tallies with the obvious marginalization of the South East geo-political zone in the socio-political and economic development of the country, particularly after the civil war that ended in 1970. 

He said their visit to the US provided the opportunity for him to interact with other Igbo organizations and business men and intimated them of the recent South East economic summit and the work of Prof. Chuwkuma Soludo’s Economic and Political Committee, which Ohanaeze inaugurated recently to articulate the roadmap for the socio-economic and political development of South East region. 

The President General of Ohanaeze said that  Nigerians in US were enthusiastic to partner with South East governors for the development of the region, especially in the area of digital technology, agriculture and power in order to create employment opportunities for the young ones and revive the moribund industries in the area.

The National Judicial Council, NJC, said yesterday that it had at the end of its 84th Meeting in Abuja, recommended Justices Adeniyi Ademola and O. O. Tokode for retirement from the Federal High Court Bench.
But Chief Robert Clarke, SAN, a counsel to Justice A. Ademola reacting  stated that the Judge retired voluntarily, immediately he was freed by the court of any infractions over the allegations levied against him by the government. A Federal High Court, FHC, in Abuja had cleared Justice Adeniyi Ademola and his wife, Olabowale, of charges of corruption brought against them by the Attorney General of the Federation. Chief Clarke in a telephone interview with our correspondent noted that, “Justice Ademola who was approaching the voluntary retirement age, resigned moment he was absolved of any wrong doings by the court. Though I am not aware of any compulsory retirement as you mentioned now, but all what I know was that he was absolved by the court of any wrong doings. As it is, he is not found guilty of any offence(s), so I would not know of any compulsory retirement owing to wrong doings. “He retired voluntarily, which I believed he reserved the right to do so. And I am not aware of any appeal against the judgment of the Federal High Court, this is because I am not aware that they compile any record of the court proceedings for their appeal. Thank you.” The Council which is headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, said it found the two Judges guilty of engaging in acts of judicial misconduct.
