Hon. Samuel Nwanosike

(By Silas Ofori)-The recent barrage of endorsements of the council chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Council, Hon.Samuel Nwanosike, for a second term by his loyalists in the area have been dismissed as unnecessary desperation and ‘beer parlour’ endorsements.

This observation was made by Frank Awusoanya and other chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party in the local government in a chat with newsmen.The party chieftains wondered why the council chairman, who had, in the past held several positions will now been relying on endorsements from his loyalists to secure a second term without consulting the leaders of the party in the area.

The party chiefs in Ikwerre are insisting that the current development was against protocol and party constitution, adding that those behind it are undermining the party leadership and promoting impunity in the system.

It would be recalled that, a fracas recently broke out at a meeting of the party chieftains in the house of former Governor Celestine Omehia, and the former governor was reportedly assaulted by sone persons who were unhappy with his stand.
