DIMAPUR, AUG 28 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/28/2018 12:28:58 PM IST

Naga Hoho (NH) through its general secretary, Mutsikhoyo Yhobuh and information and publicity secretary C. Daipao Tuesday clarified that joint declaration signed by NH president Chuba Ozukum along with the United Naga Council (UNC) on August 23 at Senapati, was a “unilateral decision” of Ozukum, without discussing with the executive council nor the Federal Assembly of Naga Hoho.

NH said Nagas were well aware, that Chuba Ozukum has been requested to demit his office gracefully following the resolution passed on October 31, 2017 taking into cognizance the letter served by the Ao Senden of its dissociation from the Hoho and directing the president to resign from the post.  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 had served a reminder to Ozukum to demit his office, NH stated.

Notwithstanding such requests, the hoho said 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 was against the spirit of the Yezabo of the Naga Hoho. While appreciating the progress in the Naga peace process, NH said it was eagerly waiting for its honorable and final settlement. “The inordinate delay caused by the Government of India is rueful and we urge for an expeditious settlement,” it added.

NH affirmed to continue “to uphold the solidarity and unity of the Nagas and defend the rights of the Nagas in politics for securing lasting peace in our land as enshrined in our Yezabo.” It however said that intimidation or ostracization of certain section of people as contained in the declaration were contrarian views of the Naga Hoho to achieve peace.
