Govt didn’t suspend Eghoro community meetings, leaders insist

Indigenes of Eghoro community in Warri North Local Government  Area of Delta State, have kicked against the purported suspension of all meetings of the community by the Olaraja (Head) and council of elders by the state government, saying that such order could not have emanated from Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

Reacting to a report published in a local newspaper, the concerned indigenes of Eghoro, who spoke through Messrs John Awowoh, Adeyemi Adoeye and Odah Ajiyen, said that the fake order and publication by an aide of the state governor, was the handiwork of some former aggrieved community executives, whose tenure had expired and have been barred from contesting any position in the in-coming executive by His Majesty, Ikenwoli, the Olu of Warri, to create room for fresh hands to run the affairs of the community.

The concerned indigenes maintained that there was no crisis in Eghoro as claimed in the said publication, adding that all machinery has been put in place to inaugurate the new executive and appeal to the Olaraja and entire council of elders to disregard the order.
