Suspended Traditional Ruler Igwe MacAnthony Okonkwo Begs Gov Obiano For Forgiveness And Calls For The Return Of Peace In The State [Video]
One of the 13 suspended traditional rulers in Anambra state who was among the 12 that travelled to Abuja early this week to honour an invitation of billionaire Arthur Eze and with the dashed hope of having an audience with President Muhammadu Buhari, has tendered an unreserved apology to the Anambra State government, and Governor Willie Obiano for his actions.
Igwe MacAnthony Okonkwo, the traditional ruler of Alor community in Idemili South Council Area, in an interview with the Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS), said he regretted his actions and failure to inform the state Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, as the Chief Security Officer of the state before embarking on the trip with others to Abuja.

He further reaffirmed his total loyalty and unalloyed support to the Obiano administration observing that the Governor has achieved a lot in the area of securing the lives and property of Ndi Anambra, as well as development in other sectors.
The traditional ruler also appealed to the Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council under the Chairmanship of Igwe Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe to show mercy so as to maintain the peace, unity and cordial relationship that currently exist in the state. He begged that steps should be taken for an amicable resolution of the issue which led to the suspension of the Igweship certificates of the 12 traditional rulers for one year and pleaded that ever-growing rift between Governor Obiano and Chief Arthur Eze needed to be put to an end as they were both important sons of Anambra State who needed to play a vital role in its continued development.
