Indigenes Protest Alleged Imposition Of Monarch.

Indigenes of the Umuihueze autonomous community, Akwete Ndoki ancient Kingdom, in Ukwa-East LGA of Abia State have protested an alleged plot to impose Daniel Nwuzor as their new traditional ruler.

This is coming after Nwuzor was last week, announced as the newly elected traditional ruler of the community by the Abia State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Uzor Nwachukwu, after a plebiscite conducted in the community by his ministry.

The Commissioner who said that Nwuzor scored 9 votes to defeat Augustine Enyinnaya Ogbulu whom he said, got 1 vote in a peaceful plebiscite which followed due process, and also explained that, the state government was not interested in who becomes the traditional ruler but only interested in peace and stability in all parts of the state.

But many elders and youths of Umuihueze who staged the protest at Ukwa East LGA headquarters, Akwete against the emergence of Daniel Nwuzor as Eze-elect, called on the Abia State Governor, Alex Otti to call the Commissioner, Uzor Nwachukwu to order, to avoid breakdown of law and order, and also alleged that the Commissioner in collusion with a federal lawmaker from the area, compromised the true process and tradition that produces a traditional ruler for Umuihueze Akwete.

Speaking on behalf of the aggrieved villagers, Ogbonna Chijiuche, who said he is the Palace secretary of Umuihueze and Onyekwere Onyema explained that the Akwete ancient Kingdom which has existed for more than 400 years, has a well-established monarchical dynasty of succession and is not known for kingship tussle.
