The leadership of the Ohanaeze Youth Council stated that the Governors deserved commendation for delivering the dividends of democracy to their people since their assumption of office in the last one year.

The ‎group further disclosed that after a poll it conducted as part of its democracy day assessment, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state emerged as the overall best performing newly elected Governor in Igboland.

The poll, according to them, covered such areas as infrastructures, security, education, health, transparency in governance, youth and women empowerment and participation in government and other vital indices.

The chairman of the screening committee of the poll, Mazi Okemiri Alex congratulated all the Governors and noted that all of them were winners in their own respect.

He noted that the group will also announce the best performing Igbo lawmaker by June.

While extolled other Igbo Governors, the group commended Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state “for personally constructing a befitting Secretariate for Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a rare feat in the annals of Igbo history.”

The group also urged the Governors to support the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Chief Gary Igariwey in their bid to pilot the affairs of Ndigbo.

They also called for the building of an “IGBO HALL OF FAME AND CENOTAPH” by other Igbo Governors at the Secretariate to complement the effort of Owelle Rochas Okorocha.

The group also noted that they had set up an Igbo Vigilant Group, IVG, to tackle the security challenges in Igboland.
