Ohanaeze Ndigbo denies electing ​Livinus Obasi as new youth leader.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has denied reports that Livinus Obasi was elected its new National Youth Leader.

National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnia, made the denial in Owerri, the Imo capital, on Monday.

He said though Damian Okafor was suspended by the National Executive Council (NEC), the body was working to settle the issues.

Ogbonnia noted that the purported bye-election conducted to replace Okafor was null and void.

“The said election lacks credibility and was neither approved nor supervised by us.

“The NEC is not aware of any by-election to replace Okafor. We refuse to recognise Obasi”, NAN quoted him saying.

The apex socio-cultural organisation of the Igbo people is led by President-General, Prof. George Obiozor.
