Anambra Government Dissolves Oko Community Leadership

Anambra Government Dissolves Oko Community Leadership

The government of Anambra State under Governor Charles Soludo has dissolved the leadership of the Oko People’s Union, led by its president general Amaechi Okoli.

The community is in Orumba-North Local Government Area of the state.

DAILY POST reports that the sack is due to a rift between the leadership of the town’s union and the monarch of the community, Igwe Laz Ekwueme.

Anambra State Commissioner for Local Government, Chieftaincy and Community Affairs, Tonycollins Nwabunwanne who signed the letter sacking the executive members of the Oko Peoples Union, OPU, explained that the action was taken to preempt a crisis in the community.

It was also gathered that there had been infighting between the monarch and union leadership, but the appointment of Ezeonwuka brought the matter to the fore.

According to reports, Igwe Ekwueme petitioned the Ministry of Education where he conveyed his non-approval of Ezeonwuka’s appointment, leading to the dissolution of the town’s union leadership, which facilitated the appointment.

When Igwe Ekwueme was contacted about the dissolution, he told journalists that the matter is being looked into, adding that he would not want to speak further on the issue.
