There seems to be crisis ravaging the Igbo social cultural association Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo in the United Kingdom, over the emergence of a woman Lady Aqueen Ibeto as President.
Meanwhile the President of Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo worldwide Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has poured encomiums on Igbo community in the United Kingdom for electing Lady Aqueen Ibeto as the President of the social cultural group in UK.
Iwuanyanwu disclosed this while addressing Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo UK stakeholders at Hilton Metropolis Hotel London, according to the Igbo leader women should be giving equal opportunity in the association,as he described Lady Ibeto as accomplished Igbo woman who has worked hard to put her name in the books of achievers.
While calling factional bodies to respect the decision of the body in electing Lady Ibeto whom he said will complete her four(4) years tenure, while assuring the Igbo community of his commitment in restoring peace among warring factions.
It would be recalled that a break away faction is challenging the emergence of Lady Aqueen Ibeto opining that Igbo tradition is against a woman leading men in any association, however it looks like the President of Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu is not in support of their ideology as he is in support of Lady Ibeto as leader of the association in UK.
