Isoko youths petition CAC over IDU board’s composition


ISOKO Youths under the auspices of Isoko Progressive Youth Centre (IPYC) have written the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), alleging lopsidedness in the composition of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of Isoko Development Union (IDU).

They claimed that the present board made up of IDU President, Major General Paul Ufuoma Omu (rtd); Senator Stella Unuezi Omu and Chief Dennis Egwe Etaluku was skewed, maintaining that the trio were from same family in Igbide Community of Isoko South Local Council of Delta State.

The youths stressed that IDU’s constitution was manipulated to accommodate the “infraction.”

IPYC, therefore, asked the CAC to wade into the matter to avoid it from snowballing into crisis, noting that a stitch in time saves time.

A copy of the petition signed by the President General/Isoko National Youth Leader, Comrade Anthony Ogbalor as well as the National Secretary General, Comrade Clifford Ojah and made available to The Guardian, the youths formulated a number of issues which they seek immediate redress.

They added: ‘‘No formal meeting was held in Isoko nation by IDU where notice of reconstitution of the BoT and exclusion of the four founding Trustees, Emmanuel Egbabor, Foreman Brown Igho, Oghenero Oghogho and Chopinx Omoroh (who are still alive) was given and no information of such was made to the Isoko people concerned.

‘‘We believe that the papers filed with CAC in the process of this reconstitution of the BoT of IDU have false contents and endorsements as the concerned people at home are not aware of this bid.

‘‘We, therefore, urge the Registrar General of CAC to conduct a thorough investigation into the above issues raised and put in check the reconstitution of the BoT of IDU and ensure that appropriate publications are made for all to see in popular dailies to ensure transparency and equity.”
