The Chairman, Ukwuani Local Government, Hon (Barr) Ajede Solomon Possible has appealed to traditional rulers, chiefs and other community structures across the local government to police and curb crimes and other security issues in their domains even as he opined that his administration is poised to serve the people by delivering on all his campaign promises.
Barr Ajede made known his administration’s drive to the Ukwuani people during his yet to be concluded familiarization/thank you tour round the communities in the area barely 3 weeks of his inauguration. He heartily thanked the Ukwuani people for coming out in their numbers to vote for him and all PDP candidates in the just concluded March 6, 2021 LGA election in the state.
He reiterated that he is committed to deliver on all his campaign promises beyond words and that he will employ all security and intelligent measures to ensure that the lives and property of the people are safe while adding that, in no time the issue of Fulani Herdsmen and criminals terrorizing Ukwuani people will be strategically addressed.
As part of his plans for the local government, the chairman noted that, security, environmental sanitation, improved primary healthcare services, Education, empowerment programme, sports and infrastructural development will be top priority in the next 3 years.
According to him, the local government can not solely address the security challenges in the LGA; “we are appealing to criminals in all our communities to repent and shun evil. Our chiefs should help in policing our communities and fish out criminals in their territories because very shortly the government will decend on them”.
“Clean environment is key to living a good life and this administration is out to pursue environmental sanitation vigorously and give Ukwuani LGA an enviable facelift in the state”.
Barr Ajede however lamented the disunity that is gradually tearing Obiaruku community apart; he therefore called on the Okpala-ukus and chiefs to pursue peace so Obiaruku can have one voice. He assured the people that he will study the documents on his table on the land demarcation and do the needful.
Meanwhile, HRM Evang (Comr.) R.C Osanwuta (JP) the Ezhie of Ezhionum Kingdom while playing host to the chairman appreciated him for what he described as ‘prompt thank you move’.
The Eze Udo pledged the support and cooperation of his kingdom to the administration of the council chairman even as he advised him not to allow himself to be rubbished by mediocres. “You must be focused and always seek God in prayers in your decision making and taking; and I pray that God will grant you the wisdom and grace to pilot the affairs of the LGA”, he added.
Also, the Igwete of Amai Kingdom, HRM Eze Paul Solomon Ifeneziuche lauded Barr Ajede for the unexpected thank you visits to the various communities in the LGA. He assured the chairman that Amai Kingdom is committed to peace and that the kingdom will give his administration all the needed support and at all times. He appealed to the chairman to help in making sure that the land demarcation between Amai and Umuebu is completed amicably.
On his part, the Ebu of Umuebu, HRM (Amb.) Donald Ekeruche congratulated Hon (Barr) C.S.P Ajede on his victory at the polls even as he encouraged him to continue on the right path while assuring him of the his kingdom’s support at all times.
