I Will Not Be Distracted – Oroazi CDC Chairman

…Vows Not To Drop Mandate Despite Progress

The Community Development Committee (CDC) Chairman of Oroazi Community in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers, Mr. Fyneface Amadi Akaninwo has vowed not to drop his mandate despite pressures on him to do so directly or indirectly.

He told newsmen that he remained the duly appointed CDC Chairman by the late Eze (Dr.) Admund Akaninwo (JP) with his council of chiefs, and will remain in office and function in that capacity until the chiefs and the elders of the community duly appoint or elect another person.

He accused Eze Nyesom Johnson Okpoko Akaninwo, the head of Oroazi Community  Rumuakaninwo for singlehandedly dissolving the existing committee in the community without the consultation of the elders and the council of chiefs.

Mr. Amadi alleged that his position was highly threatened by the manipulations of the head of Oroazi Community, who has infiltrated the community with unnecessary rancor and injustice.

Mr. Amadi described the allegation leveled against him as fallacy and urged the general public to disregard it, saying that his purported sack was just cheap blackmail and total falsehood.

He promised that whenever the community in agreement asks him to vacate his office, he will gladly do so and expressed gratitude to them for giving him the opportunity to serve them.

It would be recalled that Mr. Fyneface Amadi was accused of misappropriation of funds and prolonged stay in office by his opponents.

The current President of Oroazi Youth Movement, Comrade Samuel Ogonda Victor said his involvement in the matter was not because he has benefitted from the CDC Chairman or working in collaboration with him, rather as a youth leader he ought to have been neutral but he hates false allegation being leveled against  innocent persons.

The youth leader said the allegations are not true because the so-called money accrued from the illegal stores is  shared among all the various families that make up Rumuekeninwo Community.

He opined  that the elders and the council of chiefs should do the right thing so as to assert their powers over who reigns as the CDC Chairman for the interest of peace and unity.

And as for the tenure-ship of the youth leader, Victor said he still has approximately 10 months to be in office and not 3 months claimed by his detractors.

He vowed to continue commitment to the full implementation of his agenda for the development of Oroazi and commended the youths for their peaceful disposition and urged them to improve the tempo to attract more developmental projects from government.
