According to the DAILY POST, three traditional leaders in Anambra State who had granted senator Ifeanyi Ubah, who represents the Anambra South senatorial zone, chieftaincy titles, have since revoked them. This comes after persistent political conflict between state governor Prof. Chukwuma Soludo and Senator Ubah, who is vying for governor. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
Senator Ubah, a prominent figure in Anambra politics, joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) last year and is considered a key player in the party’s strategy to challenge Governor Soludo. During the festive season, Ubah received several titles from different traditional rulers, including Ikemba Ojoto, Odenjiinji Neni, and Dike Eji Eje Ogu, symbolizing strength and warrior status. Governor Soludo, seemingly uneasy about Ubah’s rising influence, took action by suspending the involved traditional rulers, citing a breach of due process. However, the monarchs have now issued apologies to the governor and rescinded the titles, acknowledging a violation of the State Traditional Rulers’ code.
In a press release, the governor’s Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Aburime, stated that the withdrawal of the titles was in direct contravention of the State Traditional Rulers’ code, outlining rules for granting and revoking chieftaincy titles. Consequently, the titles bestowed upon Senator Ubah have been officially canceled by the three traditional rulers, confirming their nullity in letters of apology to the State Government.
