    Having a so-called leader of Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo is just a drawback for Igbos. What does the average Igbo person benefit from Ohanaeze? Absolutely nothing! The created that post for their own personal benefit. How many times has Ohanaeze called together all Igbo community leaders to address issues such as Fulani herdsmen or if Igbos want to remain part of Nigeria or be a separate country? Never. How many times has Ohanaeze asked the president why Nnamdi Kanu is held without trial. None. Why is Ohanaeze silent about Olisah Metuh being held without trial? Every responsible Igbo should ignore this Ohanaeze stuff, and look to their publicly elected officials for leadership.
