MEET FRANK OSHANUGOR
By Anieze Ukadike
Concerned Citizens of Nsukka in Enugu state have raised alarm over what they called ‘clandestine design and orchestrated plans’ by some politicians in the area jostling to wrestle power from the incumbent Chairman of the Local government, Dr. Barr. Walter Ozioko, to destroy the political structure of Governor Peter Mba and his predecessor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
The group said, in a statement signed by Chibuike Ogbonna, that in order to achieve their nefarious aim, it was reliably learnt that the politicians have been trumpeting that the incumbent governor, Peter Mbah and his predecessor are solidly backing their moves to take over from the incumbent Chairman of Nsukka Local Government.
They pointed accusing fingers at a serving female Supervisor for Finance in the Local government, Juliana Ugwu whom they alleged is masquerading to be in support of the present chairman completing his second tenure while she goes around holding secret meetings where she continues to assure her audience that both the present governor and his
predecessor are solidly backing her candidature. They alleged that she further bragged that as an insider who works with the chairman, she knows how to deal with him.
According to the group, so far, she has succeeded in holding nocturnal meetings with some political heavy weights in the area but during the recent meeting held in a popular hotel off the University campus, she was told, point black, that the achievements of the incumbent Chairman are so encouraging and he deserves a second tenure.
They reportedly enumerated the achievements to include: asphalting of cold room road, Lejja park, Lejja/Ameze road, TTC/Odoru road, Onudialoke road, construction of ICT/Skill
acquisition center, construction of primary school at Amagu Umuachom, construction of four dams along
Uwani Ugwu/Obimo Ikwoka area to mitigate flooding and construction of health center at Obimo.
According to the group, other achievements are: the provision of transformer at Obimo community, construction
of Legislative building at Nsukka LG area premises, construction of borehole at Idi Opi etc.
The concerned citizens of Nsukka, therefore, appealed to Governor Peter Mbah to check the excesses of these black legs in Nsukka Local Government Council
before they use his name and that of his predecessor to run down the enviable political structure they have graciously put in place in the area.
