A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance in Anambra State, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka has commended Governor Chukwuma Soludo and traditional rulers in the state over the quick resolution of their disagreement. 

Ezeonwuka, who spoke to journalists in Awka on Wednesday, also thanked Soludo for reinstating the traditional ruler of Neni community, Igwe Damian Ezeani, who was suspended over alleged non-compliance with the traditional rulers’ code of conduct.

Recall that Soludo and traditional rulers had a meeting on Tuesday where the governor announced the acceptance of the apology rendered by traditional rulers who flouted the rules and also lifted the suspension of Ezeani.

Soludo also restated his commitment to the welfare of traditional rulers and set up a committee for the proper constitution of the Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council in line with the provisions of the law.

Ezeonwuka, who is the founder of Ogilisi Igbo Foundation, an Igbo socio-cultural organisation, said the parties demonstrated uncommon maturity in handling the misunderstanding.


“I want to thank Mr Governor and our royal fathers for the way they managed the crisis. They have demonstrated understanding; shown that wisdom still prevails as their action has restored the dignity of the traditional stool and that of the collective Igbo nation,” he said.

Ezeonwuka said he was happy that the situation did not degenerate further as expected by many people, adding that Anambra was not ready for that type of confusion.

He, however, called on the committee members to do diligent work and address the areas exposed by events of the last three weeks to forestall future occurrences.
