– As Eze Onyewuenyi bemoans detractors, places community on security alert over cases of rape, cultism others.
The newly appointed chairman Obibi Ezena community Owerri North local government area chieftaincy affairs and chairman Ezeship coronation committee, Chief Eze Geo Amadi has made it point blank that his committee would not leave any stone unturned as the plan for the coronation of the Ezena III, HRH Eze Peter Onyewuenyi on the 30th December 2017 and called on all those fighting each other against such a laudable community development initiative, to sheath their sword for the interest, peace and progress of the community.
Chief Amadi disclosed this to Community Watchdog Newspaper at the Eze Onyewuenyi’s palace Obibi Ezena autonomous community while reacting to some frivolous and unfounded news publication in an Imo State based newspaper putting the personality of the Obibi Ezena as a revered traditional ruler and philanthropist, HRH Eze Peter Onyewuenyi, which he described as a total fallacy and a gimmick to distract and divert the attention of the royal father who has a better plan to develop the community.
He accused the source of the publication, one Hon. Uche Barna as a former President General of Obibi Ezena Development Union (ODU), before the state government’s formation of Community Government Council (GCG) which there after subsumed all the existing town union system, laws and Chief Ben Nnaji became the CGC, PG otherwise known as secretary general, as the case was.
He maintained that, Hon. Uche Barna and cohorts have been a dog in the manger to the development of Obibi Ezena community and called on him, Hon. Barna, to embrace the new traditional ruler for the peace and progress of their community.
Responding, HRH Eze Peter Onyewuenyi said his challenges in the community are not such unfounded rumours and explained that publications against him but insecurity. He maintained that some stranger elements in his community are going about committing crimes and criminalities. He also pointed out that the case of incessant rape at the premises of John F. Kennedy Secondary School Obibi Ezena has placed the community in bad light, sleeplessness and called on the state government to come to their rescue.
Other challenges he mentioned include, poverty and hunger among mostly the children and elderly persons as well as bad roads and unemployment which he promised that in no distance time, an international waste managing company, will be sited at his community which he envisages would employ well over 4,000 youths from the area.
