Traditional rulers in Imo call on Gov. Ihedioha to immediately sack Eze Samuel Ohiri

Laud Ihedioha’s reversal of suspension of monarchs

Traditional rulers in Imo State have demanded the immediate sack of the embattled Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Samuel Ohiri.

They also expressed their gratitude to the governor for reversing the dethronement and suspension of some of their colleagues as well as fulfilling his promise of paying the allowances of those suspended or dethroned by Okorocha.


This was part of the communique reached by Imo traditional rulers which was read out by Eze Anayo Durueburuo  at the end of their meeting in Owerri. At a meeting attended by over  100 traditional rulers, they equally insisted that the State’s Council of Traditional Rulers led by the embattled Eze Samuel Ohiri should be dissolved by the governor forthwith as “Ohiri’s chairmanship remains an illegal contraption. ”


The monarchs implored the governor to comply with several court judgments including that of the Supreme Court and reinstate Eze (Dr )Cletus Ilomuanya as Chairman in line with rule of law mantra of the Rebuild Agenda of the Ihedioha’s administration. They insisted that Ilomuanya’s chairmanship is the gate way to restoring confidence and the dignity of the traditional institution which Ohiri and Okorocha desecrated.

While condemning in totality, the recent rascailty and inciting utterances of Okorocha, the monarchs called for lan intensified effort at probing the former governor .According to them, Okorocha must be made to face the consequences of his inhuman actions while in office as governor, stressing that the former governor destroyed virtually all institutions of governance in the State including the traditional institution.


The monarchs called on Imo people to lend their total support to Governor Ihedioha whom they described as “a Governor whose word is his bond. “They contended that Imo traditional rulers have resolved to stand by the governor because he has been proven that he means well for Imo and is very sincere in his dealings with the people unlike Okorocha who  regarded deceit as a virtue.
