Ondo first lady accused of imposing Igbo woman as council boss

0 comment 1 minutes read

Ondo State first lady, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, was said to have handpicked a non-indigene, Eucharia Nwamara as caretaker chairperson for the newly established Odigbo Local Council Development Area, LCDA.

An erstwhile member of the House of Representatives in the state described the development as a huge blow on the indigenes of the new council.

He said that it is not proper for the LCDA traditional ruler to receive directives from someone who is a non-indigene, further saying the youth would revolt if they refuse to take any step.

“How can we start an LCDA with a total stranger as the first caretaker chairman? It is a passionate plea. She can rescind this decision. We can not take it. Let our people be the chairman. How can an Ibo woman communicate with us?” Mr Olafumiloye said.

In a conversation with the press, Nwamara stated that she has lived in Odigbo for more than three decades and has contributed his own quota to the development of the community.

However, the spokesperson of the governor’s wife, Tobiloba Fadeyi, denied the insinuation against Mrs Akeredolu, noting that she is in Germany with her recuperating husband.

Reacting to the issue, the organising secretary of the ruling APC in the state, Tunji Moyero, expressed his disappointment with the development.
