The South East Chapter of the PAN NIGERIA PRESIDENCY OF IGBO EXTRACTION COALITION PANPIEC on Tuesday, 17th December, 2019 paid an official courtesy call on the leadership and National Executive committee of Ohanaeze Ndigbo at its headquarters in Enugu.
The group led by its South East zonal Co-ordinator Chief Frank Obineme(Obuagudindu) thanked the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Barr Nnia Nwodo for his patriotism and leadership qualities which has made the group one of the most prominent and respected socio-cultural organisations in Nigeria.
Chief Obineme who led the powerful PANPIEC delegation from all Igbo states to the Ohanaeze leadership sought the blessings of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in its crusade for justice and equity in the political scene in Nigeria. He noted that the group is an umbrella group whose leadership is spread across all parts of Nigeria. According to him the President of the group is from the North and Secretary General from the South West. He stated that Nigerians at home and abroad are joining the group in mass because of what it stands for.
In their reply Ohanaeze Ndigbo leadership thanked the PANPIEC for their lofty objectives and encouraged them to ensure they do not make mistakes similar groups did in the past , deviating sometimes from their set objectives.
They assured the group of their support , even though its main plank is the restructuring of Nigeria.
The PANPIEC leadership promised to also visit the AREWA CONSULTATIVE FORUM, AFENIFERE, PANDEF AND other socio-cultural groups in Nigeria whom they had already written to.
In another development , the DIRECTOR OF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY OF PANPIEC Chief Uche Erondu has congratulated President Mohammadu Buhari for dismissing some politicians dropping his name and claiming he is supporting them for 2023. Chief Uche noted that the declaration is statesmanly .
Chief Uche was peeved by the antics of one Rev Okechukwu Obioha who claimed to be the leader of an amorphous group he tagged SEFORP2023 who used perjorative words on the umbrella body of all groups championing the Nigeria Presidency of Igbo extraction project in 2023 noting that PANPIEC is a Pan Nigeria group and not an Igbo group as the said Mr Obioha claimed.
Chief Uche noted that several groups have been collapsing their strucutures to PANPIEC after realising that the project is a Pan Nigeria one and not just South East one.
Chief Uche advised the said Obioha to mind the language he uses and his demeanour to avoid litigation and vowed that no amount of spoiler plan by Obioha and his co-travellers will affect the activities of PANPIEC which all Nigerians are keying in.
He advised Ndigbo not to do anything that would make other Nigerians to doubt their capacity to manage Nigeria affairs in 2023 and beyond.
