Uduaghan wades into Sapele LG boss, councillors’ feud

By Austin Ogwuda
ASABA—DELTA State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has waded into the feud between the Chairman of Sapele Local Government and a group of councillors.

The governor’s intervention, according to a reliable source, was to nip in the bud the supremacy war that would take place over the matter should it be tabled before the State House of Assembly which is expected to resume sitting tomorrow.

Vanguard gathered that top politicians, including serving political office holders and lawmakers who are in different camps, had vowed to slug it out and possibly influence the House when it reconvened Tuesday.

Already, the governor has set up a three-man reconciliatory committee to investigate the imbroglio and report back to him.

The committee, which is headed by the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has begun to take written and oral evidence from the councillors and the embattled chairman at the SSG’s office.

Councillors in Sapele Local Government council recently suspended the Chairman, Mr. Godwin Atose, for three months, while the leader of the House,  Mrs. Anirah, was also impeached.

The councillors, in a motion moved by Mr. Kingsley Sajere and seconded by Mr. Efe Mafuro, removed the former leader of the House and suspended the chairman of the council by over two-third majority.
