Rift within NH widens

Dimapur, August 28: Reacting to the recent declaration signed by the Naga Hoho president and the UNC on August 23 last, the Naga Hoho today said that the President Naga Hoho has taken a unilateral decision in signing the declaration without discussing with the Executive Council or the Federal Assembly of the Naga Hoho.
In a press release, Naga Hoho general secretary, Mutsikhoyo Yhobuh and information & publicity secretary, C Daipao stated that Chuba Ozukum has been requested to demit his office gracefully following the resolution passed on 31st October 2017 taking into cognizance the letter served by the Ao Senden of its dissociation from the Naga Hoho and directing the President to resign from the post of President.
Besides, four tribes i.e. Pochury Hoho, Rengma Hoho, Chakhesang Public Organisation and Angami Public Organisation have put a stricture on the functioning of the Naga Hoho and for which the Executive has served a reminder to Chuba Ozukum to demit his office.
“Notwithstanding such requests, Chuba Ozukum in total defiance continue to issue press statements and has even gone to the extent of signing declaration as the President of Naga Hoho which is against the spirit of the Yezabo of the Naga Hoho,” the release stated.
While appreciating the Naga peace process in progress with the Government of India, the Naga Hoho said it is eagerly waiting for its honorable and final settlement.
The inordinate delay caused by the Government of India is rueful, it said and urged for an expeditious settlement.
It further said that the Hoho would continue to uphold the solidarity and unity of the Naga people and defend the rights of the Nagas in politics for securing lasting peace in land as enshrined in its Yezabo.
Intimidation or ostracization of certain section of people as contained in the declaration are contrarian views of the Naga Hoho to achieve peace, it added. (Page News Service)
