Aspiring Leaders Should Refrain from Telling Lies, Okigwe Youths Tell Owunna

Coming under the auspices of Okigwe League of Young Professionals, Okigwe youths have advised that lies and outright deceit should not be found among aspiring leaders at all levels, especially those who are aspiring to lead people.
The youth league made this known in a reaction issued by their Publicity Secretary, Ikenna Kenkwo, to a publication in the National Newsbreak newspapers of February 11, 2015, where Mazi Owunna, among others claimed the indigenship of Umulolo in Okigwe local government area.
Owunna, had asserted in the said publication that he is not from Akunwanta in Ideato North, but Umulolo, Okigwe, while maintaining that his mother, whom he abandoned several years ago was well and fine.
According to the group’s statement, “Isn’t it illogical or an aberration to the age-long Igbo cultures and traditions for a man to bury his father outside his ancestral home, as seen in the case of late Mr. Peter Owunna, who upon his death was buried at Akunwanta in the present day Ideato North local government of Orlu zone, by his son, Mazi Clement Owunna”.
The statement continued: “Isn’t it also illogical to believe that Mazi Owunna, who currently lives in affluence would allow his own mother to live in the Low Cost area of Okigwe town, selling Articles, only for Owunna to suddenly turn around and claim that she is fine”.
“Again, it is clear that in telling this lie, Mazi Owunna merely wants to recreate the absurd position he found himself by trying to contest the senatorial position of Okigwe zone”
“Isn’t it a clear negation of common sense that Mazi Owunna, whose father was buried at Akunwanta, Ideato, would suddenly claim an indigene of Okigwe”.
The group further challenged Owunna to proudly show Okigwe people where his father was buried and to also invite his mother to visit his Umulolo country home in the full glare of Okigwe people and Journalists or forever bury himself in shame.
