The Ohanzee Youth Council, OYC, has slammed Lagos-based lawyer, Festus Keyamo for his legal opinion on the Justice Okon Abang judgment, describing his call for the immediate swearing -in of Dr. Uche Ogah as Abia governor as “vexatious antics and vituperations.”
The group dismissed Keyamo’s legal stand on the matter as “a slap on the legal profession,” and “nothing but a verbal diarrhoea.”
OYC in a statement by Mazi Okemiri Alex, the chairman of State chairmen of OYC and Chetachi Ikpe, Abia State deputy chairman of the group, asked if “Keyamo was not aware that the governor of Abia State Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu is in the Appeal Court to challenge the decision of the Federal High Court in Abuja.”
The group frowned at what it described “all manner of unguarded statements on the Abia political crisis by people from across the country just to be noticed, rewarded or just talk for talking sake.”
OYC also condemned the call by a group, “Ndigbo Bu Otu Union”, which gave Governor Okezie Ikpeazu seven days to vacate Umuahia Government House and warned that “any attempt to unleash violence on Abians and Ndigbo will be resisted.”
According to them, the ghost group was just founded by some desperate politicians to create tension in Abia State.
