Catholic Church, CAN broker peace among Gov. Umahi, Anyim & Egwu - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news! 

The Catholic Church and leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have brokered peace among the Governor of Ebonyi, Chief Dave Umahi, former Senate President, Chief Anyim Pius Anyim and former Governor and current Senate Samuel Egwu, reports 
ITREALMS.
Bishop Okoro

Confirming this to ITREALMS, Technical Adviser to Governor Umahi on Media, Lady Monica Chidinma Ada Eze also commended the efforts of the Catholic Church in resolving the fuss among her boss who doubles as Chairman, South/East Governors Forum.


A press statement made available to 
ITREALMS, Lady Monica expressed delight over the truce, describing it as the greatest gift the church has given to the people of Ebonyi State in the New Year.

Referencing the Biblical Psalms 133:1 "where the Psalmist exclaimed how good and pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity."

Lady Monica Chidinma Ada Eze who also doubles as the founder and President of David Umahi Nweze Akubaraoha Ebonyi Transformation Agenda (DUNAETA), a grassroots NGO based in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State, emphasised that no society can thrive and no meaningful development can take place in an atmosphere of chaos and prayed that the truce reached amongst the trio be nurtured and sustained for the greater good and continuous growth of Ebonyi State.

Monica commended the Catholic Bishop of Abakaliki diocese, Bishop Nnachi Okoro for wadding into the clash of political interest that had ensued between Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State and the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Pius Anyim and others, and brokering peace among them.

ITREALMS recalls that Umahi, Senator Anyim, Senator Sam Egwu, former Governor of the state and all the serving senators/members of the House of Representatives currently in the National Assembly have not been having good political relationship, since Umahi’s defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This development had created a sharp political division, alignment, realignment, and reemergence of political camps among stakeholders in the State thereby placing the State in the likelihood of crisis.

The Bishop, 
ITREALMS gathered, had in collaboration with the founding fathers of the state, engaged the trio key political actors among others from the state in a closed-door meeting that took place at the Bishop’s house.

ITREALMS equally gathered that the Bishop tasked Umahi, Anyim, Egwu to give peace a chance and put away their differences for the sake of peace in the State.

The Governor had some weeks ago apologized to his political opponents and charged them to stop attacking his opponents and leaders of the state.

Monica quoted her boss as saying, “I offer apologies to them. I am not going to sit on the judgment with anybody. This apology and forgiveness should be enough to settle all bad blood. And I have no regret for that. God directed me to do this. And I thank all our leaders who have intervened; I am the father of the state. And I should be ashamed of myself if the state of Ebonyi is allowed to go into bitterness and into disunity.”

Ada Ebonyi further quoted her boss as stating, "I thank the Catholic Bishop Nnachi Okoro, I thank CAN people led by the chairman Rev. Dr. Abraham Nwali. I thank the founding fathers, I thank the Ohanaeze leadership led by Chief Nnia Nwodo and all the leaders of the South-East, who made this reconciliation possible”.

"This feat simply demonstrates that Umahi is truly an Apostle of Christ". Monica said.
