Below is the statement:
ALOR PEOPLE’S CONVENTION SECRETARIAT, OBI ALOR.
August 23rd, 2020
TO: THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF ANAMBRA STATE.
RE: A SPECIAL APPEAL TO SET A PANEL OF ENQUIRY TO PROBE THE ILLICIT ACTIVITIES OF UZOMA FRANKLIN-LAZ IGBONWA AND HIS SOCIAL CLUB; ALOR PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY. APA
On behalf of the community, we the Executive members of Alor People’s Convention caretaker Committee duly appointed and recognized by your administration do humbly and honourably seek to inform you of the immeasurable illegal activities of one Uzoma Franklin- laz Igbonwa led group whom has sworn never to allow peace to reign in Alor.
UZOMA FRANKLIN-LAZ IGBONWA prior to registering his club with the corporate affairs commission CAC conducted a Kangroo election which never had any delegate either from state or local government, various branches of Alor Development Unions ADU Scattered in several cities of Nigeria and in diasporas or various village assembly representatives as the laws and constitution required.
The said election was conducted a day after the 2019 Presidential election and just two days after they secured their contradictory judgement at Awka high court declaring the duly constituted Alor Peoples Convention caretaker committee illegal after another court of competent jurisdiction, the Nnewi high court gave a judgement in favour of the caretaker.
Also the kangaroo election was held without the kangaroo judgement in their possession because from our investigations they only got the court judgement the following Tuesday days after the sham they called election has been conducted.
All these they did in order to twist illegality to become legitimacy. Ever since then the above mentioned individual have failed to maintain the status quo even though the defendants has appealed the matter at the Appeal court of Anambra State, Thus venturing into a chest thumping mission just to continue setting the community into jeopardy.
The most disturbing aspect of the whole thing is that this man uzoma igbonwa is an ex convict who jumped parole from the US after serving 8years out of the 12years sentence he got for drug related offences.
Due to the negative implications of being an ex convict with regards to holding public office as enshrined in our Constitution this man has been hiding behind his political godfather Dr. Chris Ngige to hold public offices including but not limited to the current Anambra State coordinator for 774 local government FG Jobs.
This same individual pocketed UBEC grant to Alor for the renovation of primary schools in the town running into several millions of Naira, when the previous administration of the caretaker committee wanted to probe him he rushed to Otuocha high court to obtain an injunction restraining them from probing him further.
Your Excellency Sir, despite all these lawlessness, arm twisting, intimidations, unmitigated manipulations and provocations by this tout in gentleman clothing, the committee appointed by your administration is working vigorously to ensure that the term of reference which is to restore peace in Alor is actualised irrespective of the obstacles placed by this opposing individual and his cohorts.
All the goverment directives to all Communities ranging from the mandated 1500 naira burial levy to the tax / revenue collection has been made impossible to carry out by Igbonwa led camp through their counter announcements sponsored by them in Alor as they are claiming to be the authentic government of the town.
It has been recorded on several occasions where masked thugs working for his camp has threatened to eliminate the Chief security officer of the community whom also is a staff of Anambra vigilante services.
It is with this notice that we plead with the Executive governor of Anambra state , Chief Willie Obiano , Akpukuodike global not to yield to the selfish interest of these faceless group led by Uzoma Franklin-laz Igbonwa and recently joined by the incumbent minister of labour and employment Dr. Chris Ngige who have been giving the illegal APA covering fire all these while. We urge the governor in his own wisdom as a father and the Chief Security Officer of the State to put an end to the disastrous and calamitous activities of these lawless renegades called Alor people’s assembly who have been making Alor town almost ungovernable and impossible to enjoy peaceful coexistence.
We also call upon all security agencies including the EFCC in Nigeria to kindly place their radar on this individual who is also a member of All progressive congress party in other not to pollute the anti- corruption mantra of the President of the federal republic of Nigeria as most of his criminal and lawless activities including but not limited to his jail term in America are in the public domain.
God bless Ndi Anambra and Nigerians in general.
Hon. Chris Okudo
Alor People’s Convention caretaker Committee,
On behalf of Alor community.
