The traditional ruler of Amaetiti Igwe Romanus Nkala Nwafor has called for calm during the Nov. 6 governorship elections in the state.
The natural ruler made the call during the 2021 New Yam festival celebration with the cabinet members and subjects at his royal palace.
“It is pertinent for the forthcoming elections to be peaceful and devoid of violence so as to produce us credible results.
“If we have violence free-elections, it will motivate the electorate to troop out and vote in a candidate of their choice without fear or intimidation.
“I urge the candidates, political parties and electorate to ensure a calm and peaceful election on Nov. 6,’’ he said.
Igwe Nkala said that the festival would ensure the promotion and sustenance of Igbo culture throughout many generations to come.
“It is paramount for the custodians of Igbo culture to teach and showcase our culture to the next generation, so as to ensure its sustenance,’’ the traditional ruler said.
He admonished the youths to shun violence, idleness, drug abuse and engage in lucrative agricultural activities.
Igwe Nkala lamented over the deplorable state of Amaetiti road and called on the state government to come to their rescue.
“The deplorable state of our road has brought many setbacks to our people.
“Our people are mainly farmers. So they need good roads to access their farms and also take the farm produce to the market to sell.
“Many of the people we invited for this occasion could not join us, they had to turn back because of the bad road.
“We have written letters to the state government asking for the contractors to be recalled back to site, but nothing has been done up to now,” he lamented.
Onowu Amaetiti, Chief Joseph Okafor said that God had blessed Amaetiti with a good and humble traditional ruler, who cared so much for his people.
In addressing newsmen, President- General, Amaetiti Progressive Union, Mr Basil Okonkwo said that the Iwaji festival was significant in Igbo culture and celebrated as custom demanded.
Mr Okonkwo pledged the support of Ndi Amaetiti to All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo and prayed for his victory on Nov. 6.
He admonished Ndi Amaetiti and Anambra to come out en masse and exercise their franchise during the governorship elections.
The PG expressed gratitude to God and the people of Amaetiti for the success of the event, praying for continued peace and unity in the land. (MOI)
