“We have only one Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State Chapter, only one president in the person of High Chief Ossai Stainless Sunday and only one council of Ndieze having Eze Christopher Offia as Chairman.Therefore, the so called ‘supreme council of Ndieze’ and “Ohanaeze Ndigbo political forum”, are fake and nonesense, because its only God that is supreme and Ohanaeze is not political but cultural organization. Any person dealing with them does so at their own risk.The Governor Babajide Sanwo Olu is already aware that we have a new president, Chief Ossai Stainless Sunday and the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo world wide, Professor George Obiozor, has also written to the Governor and the government of Lagos State in that regard, ” Eze Uche Dimgba stated .
