Stakeholders Blast Chinedu Ononiba for Stopping  the Good Works of his Predecessor

… Task him to initiate his own projects….

Stakeholders from across Njikoka LGA have criticised and condemned the attempt by the Soludo newly appointed TC Chairman of Njikoka LGA Hon Barr Chinedu Ononiba to reverse the gains made for the council by the former TC Chairman Amb Clem Aguiyi.

 Stakeholders who reacted on the development described Ononiba’s action as provocative, premeditated, and unwarranted. 

The reactions of stakeholders  followed  our exclusive  report on the action of the current TC Chairman,  Hon Barrister Chinedu Ononiba who issued a stop work order on the ongoing reconstruction and remodeling of Oye Agu Abagana Market and Nkwo Enugwu Ukwu Market. The two projects were 4 the outgone TC Chairman  Amb. Clem Aguiyi .

Following the backlash, Hon.Ononiba has offered a feeble and unintelligible response where he claimed that his action was necessitated by avalanches of petitions  from some stakeholders.

A source familiar with the issue who does not want to be named because he was not authorised to speak on the issue referred to the statement from Ononiba media team as very unintelligent as the actions, were clearly  targeted against the former TC Chairman  who has endeared himself to the people with his legacy projects and populist programs.

‘Who are these stakeholders he is referring to, and what are the grounds of their petitions? What entitlement do they want?’

‘Ononiba was sworn at about 7pm on Thursday July 4th , and by 6am on the 5th of July he led a team of his thugs to paste ‘Stop Work Order’ on projects  done  by his predecessor and only awaiting the commissioning by the State Governor. 

 ‘At what time did Ononiba receive and consider the so-called petitions to warrant his hasty action. The so-called petitions were the figments of his imagination. The most plausible explanation to his ill advised action is that he wrote  the circular even before being sworn in. 

Amb Aguiyi, a seasoned and experienced technocrat, had initiated the remodeling and reconstruction of Oyeagu and Nkwo Enugwu Ukwu markets and skillfully managed the process without any hitch . The projects attracted investors from diverse backgrounds. 

The people trusted him and cooperated with him. People were happy because Njikoka was ready for business and seeing transformative  leadership. 

 Private citizens caught the bug and, through the influence of Amb Aguiyi, began to execute projects. Njikoka was becoming a destination of choice for business and leisure as businesses were coming back. 

‘Ononiba’ , the source said,’ knows what he is doing’

‘He is obviously  acting a script and being goaded by some forces who want to force the former TC Chairman out of the party due to his rising profile and popularity among the people.’

According to the source. ‘Ononiba has started on a wrong footing. He ought to have keyed into the giant strides of his predecessor or even better it by building his own momentum, but it seems he is clueless

 According  to Ikem Okeke , a native of Abagana, ‘it is difficult for anyone to attack the good works done in Njikoka in the past 20 months without colliding with the people’ . 

‘If this issue is not well managed, it will negatively impact the growth and development of Njikoka as  investors will shun the local government due to government  interference  and lack of ease of doing business. 

APGA, under the current regime has become a party of dog eat dog. 

With this crisis which are bound to cause divisions, their loss may become the gain of the opposition. 

The party needs unity more than  division in the days and months ahead’. 

The source urged all those stoking the current fire and bitterness to set their private agenda aside and embrace peace and development in the interest of Mr Governor and the party. 

Efforts to reach Amb Aguiyi for his comments have been abortive, and his media team has not issued a press release.
