Ndiowu Drags Chief Obiano Into Lingering Town Union Crisis

1 min


Ndiowu Drags Chief ObianoThe people of Ndiowu comprising of nine villages in Orumba North council area of Anambra state have accused the member representing them in the House of Assembly, Hon Emeka Aforka of compromising the town union elections for three consecutive times in the area while imposing a caretaker committee on them.

They asked the government of Chief Willie Obiano to disband the five-year-old caretaker committee with immediate effect as well as recognise and install their elected Town Union Executive conducted under peaceful atmosphere Thursday last week to become those to rule over them.

The protesting Ndiowu community numbering about 2000 and carrying placard with different inscriptions, marched from Government House to House of Assembly Awka, saying the absence of a traditional ruler and a substantive Town Union Executive have given room to opportunists to capitalize on that vacuum and cage the community from moving forward.

Addressing the people, one of the Eze’s cabinet members Mazi Uche Iloh, decried lack of security, constant intimidation, high handedness and misappropriation of the 20-million-naira Community-choose-your project given to the community by the state government.Ndiowu Drags Chief Obiano Into Lingering Town Union Crisis

Mazi Iloh maintained that if after 14 days and nothing happened, Ndiowu would resort to using the youths to get their demand.

Responding, the Speaker Anambra state House of Assembly, Rt Hon Uche Okafor thanked them for being civil in bringing their grievance to the state Assembly which, he said, is the eye and mouth of everybody in Anambra state and assured them that the House would channel their complaint to Governor Obiano for appropriate action even as he urged them to remain peaceful at all times.
