Ikpeazu reads riot act to LG boss, deputy
The chairman had allegedly sidelined his deputy in the administration of the council after their election on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket.
One of the reasons for the cold war, as alleged by the deputy, is her refusal to yield to the chairman’s advances, which the chairman denied.
Ikpeazu had cautioned the council chief over the “shameful development.”
Chief of Staff (CoS) to the Governor, Professor Anthony Agbazuere, in a Special Government Announcement dated July 4, 2021, noted with disappointment the shameful recrimination between the chairman and his deputy.
He reminded them that they were elected to serve the people of Aba South and not to fan the embers of discord.
“The governor consequently cautions these officers, in their own interest, to end the cold war and begin to work together for the good of the people, except they are imploring the councillors to review their commitment to service,” the CoS stated.
The Guardian gathered that the councillors were already making moves to remove the duo from office through impeachment.
But the chairman and his deputy have promised to maintain a cordial relationship in order to better serve the people.
A joint statement issued by the duo on Monday, July 5, read in part: “Our commitment to serving the good people of Aba South remains uppermost in all our considerations, and the official relationship between us has been cordial and will continue to be healthy to enable us to discharge our official responsibilities in the overall interest of the people of Aba South in particular and the state in general.”
They reassured the electorate and the governor of their determination to work harmoniously to guarantee democracy dividends while restating their loyalty to the PDP and the Ikpeazu government.
