Agulu community in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State has called on Governor Willie Obiano to intervene in the lingering crisis rocking the town.
It was learnt that the town union election held December 30, 2020 with Chief Oliver Afamefuna emerging as the winner, gave rise to the crisis.
Addressing journalists in Agulu on Monday, Afamefuna described the crisis as sponsored.
He fingered certain government aides from the community who sponsored failed candidates in the election as instigators of the crisis.
He called on the Governor to call a certain commissioner in his cabinet to order “and further direct him to dissolve the unpopular caretaker committee and recognise the duly elected executive of the town union in the overall interest of peace and tranquility in the town.”
Afamefuna added: “The former governor, Mr. Peter Obi, is a gentle man. He has waded into the matter in his own, to no avail.
“He won’t want to confront the incumbent governor, Willie Obiano, on such issues.”
Agulu is the country home of Ex-Governor Peter Obi and late NAFDAC boss, Dora Akunyili.
