An Owerri Socio political group, Olu Owerri has tongue lashed Chief Of Staff, Government House, Owerri, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu for taking up Owerri indigeneship.
The group said Nwosu’s action is a clear desperation for power and an embarrassment to his Eziama Obiare community.
In a statment signed by the group Chairman,Chief Martin Opara and Secretary,Barr. Sylvester Nwogu, said the Chief of Staff “resorted to the desecration of secret norms and traditional values of Owerri people by strange and embarrassing purchase of indigeneship from a community carved out by his father in law and handed over to a resident non indigene of the community as an Eze”
Part of the statement reads ‘We wish to reiterate that nothing can change the fact the Chief UCHE NWOSU who parades as the Ugwumba 1 of Eziama Obire is not from Owerri Zone and cannot buy INDIGINESHIP with money recovered from the sale of Owerri lands.
“We hereby warn the “traditional ruler” in question to stop forth with, the disparaging of the image of the respected people of Owerri and urge the Chief of Staff not to play God in the coming 2019 election”
