Reno Omokri, a socio-political activist, has condemned the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, for linking the incumbent governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo, to two deities over his recent outbursts against Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

While condemning Soludo’s attack on Obi, Ohanaeze’s Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said in a statement on Tuesday that the governor would be punished for his actions.

Recall that Soludo launched a verbal attack on Obi on Monday over alleged Labour Party backlash against him sparked by the Governor’s recent remark that Obi’s investment in the state was next to nothing.

In a lengthy article published on Monday, the governor declared that Peter Obi will not win the upcoming February election, claiming that jumping from party to party will not help him.

Ohanaeze, on the other hand, described Soludo’s actions as ridiculous, unreasonable, and premature, claiming that he had been dragged to two powerful deities, Chokoleze in Mbaise and Ubiniukpabi in Arochuku.

In response, Omokri, a staunch supporter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, said in a post on his social media accounts that Ohanaezes’ move was a sign of tribalism.

“Why would Ohana’eze Ndi’Igbo threaten to curse Governor Charles Soludo for criticizing Peter Obi?” he wrote. Does this mean Obi is now an Igbo candidate? To the rest of Nigeria, that means a lot.

“Many Yorubas, including current and former governors, have criticized Tinubu!” Afenifere has never threatened them with a curse! Many Northerners, including current and former Senators, are harshly critical of Atiku.

“They were never threatened by the Arewa Consultative Forum or the Northern Elders Forum.” In fact, an Afenifere faction backed Peter Obi.

“This act by Ohana’eze Ndi’Igbo sends a very negative message to Nigeria at a time when we are transitioning away from tribal politics and toward ideology-based politics.”
