The Paramount Ruler of Egberu-Ndoki Community, in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, Eze (Evang.) Obum Akawor, JP :FCAI Onye-Nwe-Ali has revealed his position on the Kingship of the village.
Eze Obum Akawor declared that he did not relinquish the throne and has no plans or intentions to do so in the foreseeable future.
The Egberu-Ndoki Paramount Ruler revealed this in a statement issued to Hitvibz on Monday.
Eze Obum Akawor cautioned that no one should misinterpret his silence on the kingship’s developments as agreement to the community’s seeming lack of procedure.
The full statement reads……
“No one should please, misconstrue my silence over the developments surrounding the Ezeship (Kingship ) of Egberu – Ndoki Community, Oyigbo LGA, Rivers State, as aquisance to the seemingly unprocedural order currently pervading in the community.
For the records, please, I DID NOT RELINQUISH MY KINGSHIP, AND HAVE NO PLAN OR INTENTION TO DO SO EVEN IN THE NEAREST FUTURE until God decides to call me home.
The Umu-Akawor Royal Family met late last year, 2021, in Port Harcourt, at the official residence of Venerable Christian Nkem Akawor, and decided that the Kingship should be taken away from me claiming that l had remained ineffective since my installation in 2016, and that Egberu-Ndoki Community had requested for another Eze(King) from the Royal Family.
I took time to defend my stewardship before, and even after my Coronation on 10th October, 2020.
At the end of my defence, some members of the family who were nominated to attend the meeting insisted that I should not be given another chance even after an open apology to the family.
They emphasized that Egberu-Ndoki Community requested that they should present another Eze(King).
I explained to them that the family was toeing the path of unconstitutionality going by the process the family went through from my selection in 2016 to installation, and Coronation on 10th October, 2020.
My appeal fell on deaf ears as the family had even gone ahead to bring out another King.
Any other reason being bandied about to justify this illegality by the Royal Family is nothing, but falsehood, and cheap blackmail aimed at damaging my reputation.
I have no intention to fight with anybody, including my family members over this Kingship because of my firm belief in the popular Ndoki maxim that, “Anaghi adọ Eze adọ”, meaning that, “no one fights for Ezeship (Kingship)”.
I rest my case!”
