The new leadership of Ohuhu Welfare Union led by High Chief Obi Aguocha has promised to encourage the politics of consensus in producing candidates that will occupy elective positions in the state, in order to reduce acrimony and bitterness as past experience has shown.
Chief Aguocha, who was elected as the new President-General of the Union in a free and credible election Monday November 11, 2019 made this known in his mission statement. He said that his administration will build the necessary alliances and network with a view to getting for the Ohuhu people what belongs to them.
He admitted that the task before the new leadership is a daunting one which needs all hands to be on the deck to achieve a common objective. According to the President-General, a committee will be inaugurated with the responsibility to collate information and develop them into implementable programmes for the welfare and development of Ohuhu and its people.
Aguocha also disclosed that in the coming weeks the Ohuhu Welfare Union will get a functional secretariat, and also convene Town Hall Meetings on how to move forward.

*THE OHUHU OF OUR DREAM*_
_Ohuhu huru uzo mamma nu!!_
_Ndi Eze Ohuhu, mamma nu!!_
_Ndi Council of Elders Ohuhu, mamma nu!!_
_Ndi Ohuhu dum gburugburu, kwezuo nu!!_
It is with great pleasure and thanksgiving to God, that I write to appreciate the good people of Ohuhu land, for unanimously choosing me and my team as your President General, and Executives. We are indeed elated and thankful to Ndi Ohuhu, while also conscious of the expectations and desires of our people, on this onerous assignment.
Permit me to acknowledge the support that we received prior to, and after the elections, which have come from several quarters, including our Royal Fathers, the Council of Elders, past President Generals of Ohuhu Welfare Union, as well as our kits and kin, all across Nigeria and the diaspora, and indeed the generality of Ohuhu people. We intend to build on this goodwill, towards achieving peace and unity, law and order, and a conscientious development of our tribe._
Our government will be mindful of our experiences in the recent past, especially, as it relates to political representation. We therefore, intend to instil the culture of consensus in all our elective considerations (Oha kara shi anaghi eme ihiere), and where necessary, engage in strategic alliances and networking, with a view to getting a fair deal for our people._
The task before us is daunting, and needs that all hands must be on deck. We therefore, invite all Ohuhu citizens at home and abroad, as well as our friends and well-wishers, to freely come forward with ideas and templates for the actualization of our common good._
Towards this end, we shall constitute a Committee that will be responsible for collating all information and developing them into implementable programmes, for the Welfare and Development of the Ohuhu people and Ohuhu land, which is our primary goal. Meanwhile, we shall in the coming weeks establish a functional secretariat for the Union, as well as convene town hall meetings across the various zones of Ohuhu, while working towards holding a mini convention next year._
_I thank you once more, for the privilege to serve our people. As your duly elected servants, our actions and programmes shall be devoid of any partisan considerations, but shall be predicated on the promotion and protection of the overall interests of our Ohuhu people. Simply put, we shall pursue an Ohuhu First Agenda only._
_I assure you all, that I am confident and determined to replicate the selfless service, sacrifice, and developmental strides as well as political gains, that I rendered to Okaiuga Nkwoegwu, during my tenure as their President General, to the greater benefit of the Ohuhu people. With your continuous support and prayers, and God on our side, the Ohuhu of our dream will soon be achieved._
_May God Bless you and Bless Ohuhu._
