“Thanked the Executive Governor of Enugu State Rt Hon. Dr Ifeanyi Lawrence Ugwuanyi and member representing Nsukka/Igboeze South federal constituency, Rt Hon. Dr Pat Asadu for the good work of road construction and asphalting in Nguru.

“Declared that peace in Nguru Nsukka is paramount and must be maintained by all and sundry.”

They also “condemned the attitude of the group that describes herself as Nguru Concerned Citizens that, on Monday, 3/1/22, blocked the major roads in Nguru Nsukka in the name of protest, thereby holding the lives and economic conditions of all Nguru Nsukka people and the neighbouring community to ransom and described the attitude of the group as barbaric and uncivilized.

“Urged the aggrieved members of Nguru Concerned Citizens to embrace dialogue, and stop giving false information to some people of our community.

“Maintained that HRH Igwe Linus Obayi, though the traditional ruler, do not have absolute power over Nguru Nsukka land since the _Akpuru aruas (Onyishis)_ and Land Committee had been handling Nguru land matters even before the coronation of the Igwe.

“Commended the Igwe for his humility, intelligence and wisdom and good leadership style in the community.

“Resolved that Nguru Town Union is very paramount and must be supported by all stakeholders, and that delegates to the Town Union remain at the discretion of villages maintaining the cultural and constitutional provisions of delegation/nomination; the Onyishi of each village has power to endorse all delegates and in the absence of Onyishi endorsement, the delegates are invalid.

“Our traditional ruler the Igwe, the Akpuru arua and other custodians must be given utmost respect at all times.

“Advised the members of Nguru Concerned Citizens to leave HRH Igwe Obayi alone since the Igwe is innocent of all the allegations levelled against him.
