-Says: Clan Magnalized, Urges Sons And Daughters To Brace Up For Governor,Senator In Coming Years

The apex umbrella body of Isu people which dominate all clans in Orlu Zone has frowned at lopsided apointment of of Senator Hope Uzodinma,the governor of Imo State which gave Isu Local government and Nwangele three Commissioner nominee slots each while leaving other local government areas out of the appoinment.

The group in a release captioned, ” Position on the Recent Appointments Into Imo State Government”, signed by Dr Batos Nwadike, Bishop Blaise Iwuogo Phd and Engr Emmanuel Ihenacho as National President,Spirtual Director, International Director,respectively argued that it is not against the governor to appoint whoever he wishes to appoint but such action has again exposed the  the place of Isu Nation in the heart of the  present administration.

The body maintained that as key actors in politics of Imo state that have contributed in making so many leaders,they will rally support for their sons and Daughters to contest for governor and senate in the coming election.

The release reads,”The Highest Council of Isu Nation some hours ago concluded its routine conclave meeting, which held on 20th April, 2024, at the Ozuruigbo leadership Centre Umueze Umuorlu Isu in Nwangele LGA with the President General Dr. Batos Nwadike (Oyi of Igboland) bodily present and presided over the meeting. The meeting was well attended and in full capacity.

“The INC Highest Council have observed the recent Imo State government appointments and reappointment into the Imo state government. We are aware that a local government like Nwangele has three commissioners. Fine. We also observed that Isu Local Government has three commissioners. Fine. We are also aware that Njaba, Nkwerre, and half of Orlu (Isu nation area), which is even bigger than some local governments in Imo State, have no commissioners at all. All these we have observed.

“The INC Highest Council on behalf of the people of Isu Clan restates our position about the politics of Orlu zone and Imo State, which we have in decades been a major stakeholder and contributory pipe.

 “We have helped in sundry ways of voting for our brothers, helping to set agenda, and brought huge sums of money and materials to realize the dreams of our neighbours and failed allies. Despite all our patriotic contributions, our lot has been to be excluded and degraded and profiled as those who can not fit into legacy offices of high, profile national offices. Therefore, our agitation is that we are not interested in the number of commissioners and special advisers and what not what. He who wishes to be can go ahead but not in the overall interest of Isu Nation. 

“We shall, therefore, in the coming years, take our destiny into our hands as all neighbourly friendship has failed us. 

“Our position remains clear, we urge all our sons and daughters to begin to strategise to occupy the high offices of Governor, Senator, and Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2027. Enough of hewing wood and fetching water!”.
