The Lagos State chapter of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organisation has denied reports that it dumped the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi and endorsed Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Sunday Ossai, the president of the chapter, called the claim "misleading", adding that it originated from "the pit of hell".

He blamed his predecessor, Solomon Aguene, who he said was behind such claims and emphasised that nobody but himself had the authority to speak on behalf of the group.

Speaking via an official statement, Ossai said that the claim was meant to serve some private interests and not that of the Lagos chapter of the Ohanaeze group.

"The attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has been drawn to the news making the rounds with a caption ‘Ohanaeze Ndigbo dumps Peter Obi, declares support for Tinubu’.

"The purveyor of the above remarks is Chief Solomon Aguene, the immediate past president of Ohanaeze, Lagos State Chapter.

"Ohanaeze, therefore, informs the general public that the current president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos State Chapter is Chief Sunday Ossai and only the Chapter President or an authorised officer of the current Lagos state executive has the right to speak on behalf of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos State Chapter.

"For the avoidance of doubt, the misleading impression that ‘Ohanaeze dumps Obi’ is from the pit of hell and meant to serve private interest.

"Such a statement is hereby vehemently debunked", part of the statement reads.
