Listen to article

The nomination of Chief Jacob Nwakpa as monarch-elect of Nkomoro autonomous community in Ezza North Local Government Area has been authenticated by the Ebonyi State House of Assembly Committee on Public Petition, Justice and Judiciary, led by Hon Chikaodili Nomeh. 

The committee, in a statement signed by the assembly’s public relations officer Sylvester Egede and made available to the press on Saturday, appealed to the community to continue supporting Governor Francis Nwifuru for the benefits of democracy in the area.

According the statement: “The committee found out that there were meetings and announcements made on EBBC radio and other media in respect of the selection and nomination of the traditional ruler of the community.

“The committee equally found out that the Nkomoro people in their general meeting held on 6th April, 2024 had constituted a five-man screening committee headed by Barr. Samuel Nwokwu for the screening of candidates from Oriuzor clan which the zoning arrangement favoured.

“Based on these facts and other submissions before the committee, the committee resolved that Chief Barr. Jacob Igboke Nwakpa should be crowned traditional ruler of Nkomoro automonous community in line with the report of Nkomoro zoning and screening committee.

“The committee also stated that the petition provided by few individuals challenging the Eze-elect including the nefarious claim that he was not qualified for the position was false.

“The committee observed that the petition from a few individuals challenging the emergence of Chief Barr. Jacob Igboke Nwakpa as Eze elect lacked merit and as allegations including non-qualification of Chief Jacob Nwakpa were found to be false and the petition failed before the committee.

“The committee unanimously encouraged all the parties to support the State Governor, Rt Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, for more democracy dividends and development in the community.”
