Chief Solomon Ogbonna.

The General Assembly of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos, has impeached the President Chief Solomon Ogbonna, as was the outcome of the general assembly meeting held today at Calabar hall, Surulere Lagos.

The motion for his impeachment was moved by Mr. Peter Agah, the Chairman of Ohanaeze, Ajeromi Local Government, seconded by Eze Pat Ene of Ojo and Eze Okpotemba of Ikeja, with the crowd immediately chorused a deafening Supported! Supported! Supported!

The Chairman of Ohanaeze, Ajeromi Local Government cited the court judgment procured by Chief Solomon Ogbonna to extend his tenure by another four years against the bye-law which states that a president can only go for a term of four years, calling on the parent body of Ohanaeze worldwide Enugu, to immediately set up a caretaker Committee to handle the affairs of Lagos Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

The copy of the court judgment states that all the State Executive members have been sacked, leaving the President as the only standing Executive member who was empowered to organize election for other executives to serve for another four years.

Mr. James Uwadoka from Ayobo Ipaja expressed consternation at the behavior of the impeached  President, Solomon Ogbonna, who had the opportunity to exit office honourably but chose to play god by insulting everyone including custodians of our culture {Ndi-eze} for his tenure extension project, even as Chief Umedi Joseph from Apapa Iganmu wondered why the impeachment motion was delayed till this time.

The motion for his impeachment was immediately followed by the exit from the venue of all the Ezes and the multitude of Ndigbo who attended the General Assembly numbering about Five hundred, and we discovered that the administration of Chief Solomon Ogbonna as President created so many problems, including the planting of his associates in the just concluded local government election, thereby causing the many crises trailing the elections which allowed strangers to take over the affairs of Ohanaeze in Local Governments.

The new caretaker committee is expected among other things to nullify the recent crises ridden local government elections.

With this new development, Chief Solomon Ogbonna’s procured court judgment sacked the executives of the Ohaneze Ndigbo in Lagos, while the general Assembly of the Ohaneze Ndigbo, which is the body with the statutory powers, impeached the President.. making the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State without a valid Executives at the moment.

Chief Solomon Ogbonna was sworn in as the President of Ohanaeze Lagos on the 16th of June 2018 and is supposed to vacate office next week Thursday, the 16th of June 2022, but unfortunately, he ended it with being impeached as President out of his greed and selfish desire to stay for 12 or more years.
