The Traditional Rulers Council in Abia state have asked the traditional ruler of Eziama Aba, Eze Isaac Ikonne of Aba North to vacate his seat as chairman for installing the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari as Ogbuagu 1 of Aba kingdom.
The Chairman of Abia State Traditional Rulers’ Council, Eze Eberechi Dick, in a press briefing reacted to Ikonne’s action saying:
“that Aba is made up of two Local Government Areas- Aba North and Aba South and over 400 communities as a zone, while Osusu where Ikonne is resident has a traditional ruler and therefore, Ikonne is incompetent to give somebody title on behalf of Aba”.
According to him, the Abia State Council of Traditional Rulers is happy with Governor Theodore Orji and President Goodluck Jonathan for their people-oriented governments.
He condemned Ikonne over the unwarranted attack on the Abia State government and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
