NNC leaders have rejected the NNC and FGN joint meeting resolution which withdrew support to the leadership of ‘gen.’ (Retd) Thinoselie M Keyho as president of NNC from February 13, 2019. 

In a joint press release, NNC vice president Thüpuswüyi S Keyho, NNC Angami Regional Council president Khriekhotuo and NNC Chakhesang Regional Council president Nüveta Rhakho said the “so called removal resolution” can never be honoured nor recognised, as it was “simply a matter of shame on those people who masterminded it”.
The three reiterated that NNC was the only political institution of the Nagas and for the Nagas and not the property of “a few national workers or vested individuals whosoever they may be.” 
They reminded that NNC had its own convention of functioning with the Central Executive Council (CEC) as the main body which controlled the political and working policy of the NNC. 
Therefore, they said the power to “ elect or remove any executive official rests with the  Central Executive Council.” 
The signatories also reminded that NNC president ‘gen.’ (Retd) Thinoselie M Keyho was elected on the May 11, 2016 in the NNC general session through the CEC at Yorüba Village where his tenure would depend on the completion of his tenure or impeachment.
They also pointed out that there was no provision whatsoever in the “Yehzabo of Nagaland or conventional practice of our nation” for a joint meeting of “so called NNC and FGN workers” to dictate the NNC, remove or elect NNC president or any other executive official from powers or office. “A true National Worker cannot be above the Yehzabo or the conventional practice of our people, they said.
They also pointed out that withdrawal of support to the NNC president by those elements was “a welcome move”, as even if they did not, they would be expelled from NNC if they “accept a surrendered solution within the Indian constitution.”
They affirmed that NNC can never compromise the “popular plebiscite of May 16, 1951 and sovereignty of our nation for a surrendered solution under Indian constitution at any time.”
