New IPU exco promises committed services

By the time the delegates to Isimkpu Progressive Union, Arochukwu ended their colourful meeting at Isimkpu Hall by 06:05pm on Saturday, April 4, 2015, the participants were all beaming with smiles as the candidates they had in mind had been elected into offices to pilot the affairs of the union in the next three years. In a most transparent and rancor-free election conducted by Mazi Oti Otuije (as the returning officer alongside Mazi Lawson Chijioke, Bertha Kanu and Chidi Oti), the current president-general of Isimkpu Progressive Union, Uche Oti (of Abuja branch) was unanimously re-elected for a second term following his nomination for the position. The delegates had noted how well he had conducted himself and the affairs of the union in the last three years and deserved another term to continue his services to the village. He was therefore re-elected unopposed.

Also re-elected unopposed was the vice president-general, Agodi Kanu Oji (of home branch). Elected the secretary-general was Ogbonnaya Akoma (of Umuahia branch) who emerged unopposed while Joseph Ogbonnaya (of Enugu branch) was elected to assist him. Emeka Irole (of Enugu branch too) was re-elected the Financial Secretary while Mrs Nnennaya Okoronkwo, the out-going secretary-general, was elected Treasurer. Ogbonnaya Obasi (of Abuja branch) emerged the Welfare Officer 1, while Mrs. Callista Okoronkwo (of home branch) was elected Welfare Officer 11. Chidi Uche Okoro, (of Umuahia branch) was re-elected National Publicity Secretary. Also re-elected the National Legal Adviser was Okezie Uche Okoro, an Aba-based lawyer.

In his acceptance speech on behalf of the newly elected officers after the election and after the new EXCO was sworn in by the national legal adviser, Mazi Uche Oti said his re-election would spur him to do more for the village and promised that the new EXCO would like to excel in office, having noted the challenges that faced Isimkpu village in terms of infrastructural development, social services and others. Oti, therefore, called on the new Exco be prepared for more services to the village, which is on a hurry to meet up with others in development.
