Igwe Agulu Describes Those That Attended Ubah's Campaign Flag-Off As Impostors

  [ Masterweb Reports ] - The Traditional ruler of Agulu, Igwe Innocent Obodoakor said the community has sanctioned those who impersonated him at a political rally to flag-off the campaign of Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah at Onitsha.  Igwe Obodoakor who was speaking to journalists in Awka said the impostors who were ordinary titled men, but pretended to be Igwes had been suspended pending the determination of the issue by the General Assembly of the town.

 

Igwe Obodoakor regretted that people should be desperate to go to the extent of impersonating a traditional ruler in their quest for easy money and pointed out that royal fathers by the virtue of their position do not play politics nor be involved in such political rally.

 

Igwe Obodoakor said contrary to claims by the impostors, Governor Obi more than any other Governor in  Anambra State had recorded unprecedented achievements that had remained a source of pride to the people of Agulu and Anambra State in general.

 

He explained that the Governor has uphold the policy of equity and fairness in distribution of democracy dividends across the State and Agulu community has received its own fair share of democracy dividends.

 

It will be recalled that Ichie Julius Ilo from Obe Village in Agulu had led two other Ichies to the flag-off of Ifeanyi Ubah political campaign, where he spoke as the Igwe of Agulu, when the Igwe, at that time, was not even in State.

 

Condemnation has continued to trail their action. Commenting on the matter, Chief Stephen Okeke, also from Agulu condemned the action of Iloh and his co-travellers and wondered how much a politician should give to a titled man to bring the name of a town into disrepute. He also  said that Ifeanyi Ubah’s campaign organization, but arranging such a façade, has proved that Ubah is not fit and proper for leadership in a civilized and decent society.
