Town Union election tears Nguru Nsukka community apart


Another round of crisis has hit Nguru community, in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State

This time, indigents of the community are locking horns over the election of members of Town Union Executive after the emergence of a traditional ruler in the person of His Royal Highness, Igwe Linus Obayi.

It was gathered  the crisis in the community predates the emergence of the monarch.

It was gathered that the indigenes have remained sharply divided, a situation that was occasioned by the plan by a Charismatic Catholic Priest from the community, Rev. Fr. Paul Obayi to establish a private university in the area. The bone of contention has been on the modalities of the priest’s acquisition of land for the said purpose.

The development has created room for a clear division which has continued till date, and has now worsened with attempts to elect Town Unio Exco.

In a petition written to the Chairman of Nsukka Local Government Area by a group, Nguru Nsukka Development Union, which is opposed to the monarch, they accused him of trying to impose Town Union leaders on the community.

The petition, dated August 25, 2019, was signed by Mr. Ugwu Ignatius and Onah Sylvester, the chairman and the secretary, respectively. No less than 36 other members of the community were listed as interested parties in the petition.
