Against the backdrop of crisis rocking the leadership of Okpoko community in Ogbaru local government area of Anambra State, the Member representing the area in the State House of Assembly, Hon. Benson Nwawulu, has cautioned politicians in the area to desist from instigating trouble among the people just to gain unmerited popularity.
Nwawulu spoke yesterday at the premises of the state House of Assembly complex, Awka, the state capital when he received hundreds of residents of the area led by a president general of the Okpoko town Union, Chief Francis Enemuo who came to show him solidarity.
Before heading to the state assembly complex, the group had gone to the Government House Awka, where they commended the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano for the “excellent performances” of his administration in the state at large and Okpoko community.
At the Government House, the Chief Enemuo led Okpoko residents had dismissed the allegation by another group of residents of the town led by another claimant to the president general of the Town Union position, one Hon. Hon Edwin Emesinwa to the effect that the special adviser to the Governor on Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Hon. Vera Okonkwo was instigating disharmony in their area by attempting to foisting a Town Union leadership on them.
Enemuo rather stated that he emerged as president general of the Town Union in an election conducted based on an order of a High Court of the state which ordered that the election should be held.
But earlier, some residents of the area led by Hon. Emesinwa had stormed the Government House accusing the governor’s special adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters, Hon. Vera Okonkwo of imposing a Town Union leadership on them, adding that the N20 million choose-your-community project of the state government allocated to the community was mismanaged.
Some of the placards they display read thus “vera is the cause of all the problems in Okpoko, there are pending cases of Okpoko in both Ogbaru High Court and Appeal Court; politicians who are behind the crises in Okpoko live at GRA from where they represent us; Gov Obiano Pls come to our rescue, we are tired of imposition of caretaker committees; Hon Emesinwa is our President General, politicians leave Emesinwa alone; we did not see any project worth #20million Gov Obiano choose your project in Okpoko”, among others.
