Reacting to the news item pertaining to appointment of interim kedahge, the NNC/FGN has issued a clarification since Thupuswuyi S. Keyho had dragged in the name of kedahge ‘brig’ (Retd.) S. Singnya. 

A press release by NNC/FGN cabinet secretary, Ghuvishe V. Zhimomi stated that, henceforth any self respecting political group should refrain from trying to drag in the name of any NNC/FGN functionary just to gain mileage. 

While the NNC/FGN has no objection or any problem whatsoever in the particular NNC group to appoint/elect anybody as their interim kedahge or even kedahge as it does not interfere in the functioning of other political groups, the NNC/FGN stated “at the same time we do not expect any splinter group to interfere in our affairs nor drag in the name of any of our functionaries much less the Kedahge’s with the intention to mislead the people just to gain publicity to suit their vested interests.”

NNC/FGN also stated that it has no constitutional crisis whatsoever as the activities and functioning of the government were guided by the constitutional provisions of the yehzabo of Nagaland. The release informed that kedahge of NNC/FGN is duly elected according to the constitutional provisions adhering to all norms and conventional practices based on Article 20 of the yehzabo of Nagaland which states “The kedahge shall be elected by an Electoral College consisting of the elected members of the Tatar Hoho”. On the issue of ongoing talks with GoI, the NNC/FGN stated that as a part of the NNPGs with the approval and consent of the council of kilonsers duly endorsed by the tatar hoho has signed the preamble with GoI. It also stated that NNC/FGN was continuing the dialogue with the GoI to arrive at an honourable and mutually acceptable settlement.
