The Abia State Traditional Rulers Council has disowned the traditional ruler of Eziama Aba, Eze Isaac Ikonne of Aba North for installing the Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), former Head of State, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari as Ogbuagu1 of Aba kingdom, saying he has no powers to do so.
Reacting to Ikonne’s action in a press briefing in Umuahia, the Chairman, Abia State Traditional Rulers Council, Eze Eberechi Dick, said that Aba is made up of two Lpcal Government Areas-Aba North and Aba South and over 400 communities as a zone while Osusu where Ikonne is resident has a traditional ruler and therefore Ikonne is incompetent to give somebody title on behalf of Aba.
According to him,the Abia State Council of Traditional Rulers are happy with Governor Theodore Orji and President Goodluck Jonathan for their people-oriented governments and condemned Ikonne over the unwarranted attack on the Abia State government and the federal Republic of Nigeria.
He hinted that the council is aware that Ikonne is influenced to do what he did and shall investigate it and take appropriate actions.
In his comment, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy,Dr. ACB Agbazuere advised Eze Ikonne to desist from his consistent and incoherent attacks on the State government as it is subversive.
Dr. Agbazuere said it was wrong for him to continue to attack the government he is part of and implored him to resign if he wants to join politics.
