The people of Mbulunjodo-Nike, in Enugu East local government area of Enugu State have indicated their wish that they would want their own community to produce the next council chairman for the local government.
The people also indicated that, in the spirit of brotherliness, equity, justice and fair play, it is only fair that an indigene of Mbulunjodo becomes the next council boss so that they would be seen as co-partners in council’s development project.
The community made public their stand when a delegation led by the Administrator of Njodo Development Council, Chief Clement Nnamchi, paid a courtesy visit on the Speaker of Enugu State House of Assembly, Hon. Edward Ubosi in his office.
One of the leaders of the community, Chief Clement Okwor, former Head of Service, Enugu State, urged Hon. Ubosi who also is a Nike man, to help them actualise their dream.
Okwor said that he was convinced that if the Speaker puts in good word for them during the forthcoming council election in fourth quarter of the year, they will get their heart’s desire.
“Help us to get it. If it is given to us, it will be a good development. We know you can get it for us,” Okwor tells Ubosi.
Another community leader, Mr. Sunday Nomeh, called on the speaker to use his position to unite the entire Nike Clan by calling them for a meeting on how Nike is to be governed especially as it concerns the chairmanship of Enugu East so that no community is marginalised.
Replying, Ubosi told them that it was God that gives power but said he would do everything humanly possible to see that their desire is achieved.
Ubosi told them that if it is the turn of Mbulunjodo Community to produce the next council boss, nobody would stop it.
His words: “I thank you for the visit. It is God that appoints kings – power comes from God, power belongs to God.
“When the time comes, I shall speak my mind. When the issue of who becomes council chairman comes up, I’ll do everything possible to see that Nike and Enugu East move on.
“When it is the turn of Njodo, nobody will stop it.”
The speaker pleaded with them to go about it in a peaceful manner.
