CLO begs Gov Soludo to reinstate suspended Anambra ruler

Governor Charles Soludo and Igwe Damian Ezeani

The Civil Liberties Organization has urged Governor Charles Soludo to pardon and reinstate Igwe Damian Ezeani, the ruler of Neni in Aniocha LGA.

The ruler was suspended from his throne following his award of chieftaincy titles to citizens outside his domain without clearance from the ministry of local government and chieftaincy affairs, as stipulated in Anambra’s Traditional Rulers’ Code of Conduct.

The CLO chairman in Anambra, Vincent Ezekwueme, made the plea in Enugu on the unfortunate development currently heating up Anambra.

Mr Ezekwueme said, “Mercy is more fruitful and rewarding than strict justice” and “similarly to err is human, but to forgive is divine.”

According to him, Mr Soludo should kindly reinstate the traditional ruler to not give credence to speculation that his suspension has a political undertone and restore respect, dignity, and honour accorded traditional rulers/institutions.

He said, “We appeal to all Anambra political gladiators, supporters and Anambra people to work assiduously towards the restoration of absolute peace, security, unity, tolerance and harmonious coexistence.

“We wish to reiterate our earlier appeal to our political leaders to call their overzealous supporters to order to douse political tension in the state and restore normalcy, peace and tranquillity.

“It is very unfortunate and despicable. This unbridled character assassination, name calling, casting unsubstantiated aspersions on perceived and imaginary opponents, should be halted through collective and collaborative efforts.”
