DIMAPUR, April 27 (NNN): The Naga National Council (NNC) President Adinno Phizo arrived in Nagaland today accompanying her late younger brother`s coffin from London.
81 years old Adinno Phizo returns to Nagaland after more than 50 years of staying abroad.
It has been speculated here that the eldest daughter of legendary A.Z Phizo will not go back to London. Sources said she will not entertain on people seeking to interview her during the mourning period. By early next month, Adinno Phizo will start meeting her party leaders and will chalk out strategies to revamp the NNC position.
Adinno Phizo has been operating NNC from London after her father A.Z Phizo`s death in 1990.
When Adinno Phizo took over the NNC leadership, there were rebels in the party itself who were steadfastly against her being awarded the top post. The infighting within the NNC in the early 1990s had led to the spit of the party into NNC/FGN (Adinno), NNC (Hozheto), Federal Government of Nagaland (FGN) led by Singnyu and NNC (Nagi).
