For now, I’m not dealing with specifics, as I would like all Igbere people to read the Report of the Independent Panel presented to the Board of Directors for deliberation.
It would be observed that a petition was filed against the presidential election conducted at the New York Convention on July 29, 2016.
The Independent Panel in their fact finding assignment arrived at the conclusion that the first presidential election was baptized by massive rigging, electoral violations and fraudulent practices by the electoral committee.
Meanwhile, the IP made recommendations to the Board of Directors that would bring peace and unity to the organization.
The Chairman of the Board and some peace loving members of the Board lobbied, canvased and prayed to return peace to the organization. Unfortunately, a group of mafias infiltrated into the Board and frustrated the efforts of the Board Chairman Chief Daniel Eke to bring peace and unity.
Today, the Chairman of the Board Chief Daniel Eke and two other prominent members of the Board have resigned from the organization. More members of the organization are yet to leave.
Today, I cannot associate myself with an organization that has been poisoned by fraud, malaise, rigging and violations, and no respect of the association’s constitution.
I therefore honorably withdraw my membership from IPAI.
