Leadership crisis tearing Amorka community In Anambra State

Ihiala local government area of Anambra State

A leadership crisis is brewing  in Amorka community, Ihiala local government area of Anambra State, following the alleged impeachment of the President General of the town’s union. A group had claimed to have impeached the President General (PG) of the Amorka Improvement Union (AIU), Simeon Alozieuwa, over allegations of gross incompetence, high handedness and abuse of office. The impeachment notice was contained in a letter signed by Polycarp Umunna, who described himself as the acting President General, and Romanus Ugherumba, Secretary General, and addressed to Governor Willie Obiano. The duo said the action followed a visit of the union’s executive  to the governor where the crisis in the town union was discussed. They said a general meeting of the union held in February, ratified the decision of the executive council to impeach Alozieuwa and replace him with Lawrence Nwakaeti at another meeting in March. “We are of a firm view, therefore, that any action seeking to bring back Simeon Alozieuwa as PG of Amorka will be tantamount to an imposition. We, therefore, urge the Anambra State government to resist that temptation as may be urged by enemies of this town. Loading..

However, when contacted, Simeon Alozieuwa described the alleged impeachment as “tissue of lies and inconsequential’’ insisting that he is still the president general of the town. “A gang cannot wake up and say that they have impeached me. The information they dished out being their reasons for the purported impeachment was cooked-up by them,’’ he said.
