Traditional rulers of the three towns that make up Njikoka 1 constituency have thrown their weight behind the member representing the area in the area, Mr. Timothy Ifediora, for a second term in office.

The three communities which include, Nawfia, Enugwu Ukwu and Enugwu Agidi, unanimously supported the lawmaker in line with the existing rotation policy agreed upon in the area.

Declaring his support for the lawmaker on Monday in his palace, the traditional ruler of Nawfia, Igwe Chijioke Nwankwo, said he is joining his royal colleagues to support the lawmaker's return to the state assembly saying that he did not sign when others did because he had pending court issue with the President General of his community.

The traditional rulers of Enugwu-Ukwu, and Enugwu Agidi had earlier signed the agreement along with their Presidents'General and one stakeholder as required,

While explaining that there is an existing arrangement that the position should be rotating among the three towns for eight years each, he noted that since Ifediora had done only one term, the three communities had agreed that he should be allowed to go for a second tenure.

Nwankwo added, “I want to make it clear that I am in agreement with the other two traditional rulers in our constituency. Honourable Timothy Ifediora has my full support. I have already made it known to them because this is a standing agreement among the three towns of Nawfia, Enugwu Ukwu and Engwu Agiidi.

“The agreement provides that the position should be rotating among the three constituencies. The agreement also provides that each town should occupy the position for two terms. Honourable Ifediora is my son and he has my full support to complete our turn. For now, he is the only person who has declared interest in the race and until others do same, he is the only person we are supporting.”

According to him, the rotation process was agreed upon to reduce the cost of electioneering in the constituency, adding that the support for the lawmaker was regardless of party affiliation.
