Community begs for peace, unity

*Says, we’re tired of crisis 

The people of Alor in Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State have said those fomenting trouble in the community should desist henceforth, as the people need peace and unity.

The community is where the former governor and immediate past Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige hails from.

Addressing reporters Friday at the Nigeria Union of Journalists secretariat in Awka, the leaders of the community, led by an 80-year-old traditional prime minister, Chief Ben Udeze, said the community had only one monarch and not two.

The elder statesman said peace had eluded the community for a long time, therefore, some of the disgruntled elements fanning the embers of discord should give peace a chance.

Udeze, said that the people of Alor were happy with their traditional ruler, Igwe Mac-Anthony Okonkwo, adding that they had confidence in his ability .

Speaking on behalf of the Concerned Citizens of Alor community, the spokesperson for the troubled community, Rev. Innocent Peace-Udochukwu, said it should be known that the court cases were still- ongoing including that of the Appeal Court, of which, no ruling had been made.

According to Peace-Udochukwu,”We’re using this medium to call on the court to fairly and expeditiously resolve this matter, and we urge all members of our community and indeed, friends of Ndi-Alor to reject the misinformation being spread and to support our monarch during this challenging time.

This conflict has deep roots, dating back to about nine years. It’s driven by a small group of individuals who seek to gain power and influence by sowing seeds of division and discrediting the monarch despite every effort being made to reach a peaceful resolution to the unwarranted crisis.

“Their selfish actions are disrespectful to the community and its rich history, and undermine the stability and prosperity of the community as a whole,” he said.
