Chairman of Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, Chief Onajite Brown, has warned that tenure elongation does not encourage progress as it leads to litigations and succession tussles.
Speaking at the inauguration of a new executive council of Owhrode community in Udu for a three-year term, the council boss said Udu will not tolerate attempts at tenure elongation, which was usually for pecuniary reason.
Brown, represented by the council’s Vice Chairman, Mr. Justice Iyasere, said: “The constitution of any body is sacrosanct and so must be adhered to,” calling on all stakeholders in Owhrode to put their differences aside for the good of the community.
The inaugurated new executive include Edafe Oghenekaro, President General; Owhrodenyorere James, Vice President; Ichipi John, Secretary; Gbojo Simon, Assistant Secretary; Oyibo Jewhe Blessing, Treasurer; Dadi Joseph, Financial Secretary; Jaho Jerkins, Public Relations Officer; Fobrukwueta Godwin, Auditor I; Auditor II; Odjoh Nathaniel, Spokesman; Oghorhon Eze Kotete, Assistant Spokesman and Odaji Francis, Welfare Officer.
