Banish the suspended Monarchs – Ngige tells Anambra Govt.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has called on the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, to banish the 12 monarchs that went to Abuja without government’s authorization.

He said the oil magnate, Prince Arthur Eze that led them to the trip should also be punished accordingly, for sabotage.

Obiano had suspended the 12 monarchs from office for one year because of the trip which government saw as an affront and breach of rules and protocols of traditional operations in the state.

When somebody is suspended from performing the functions of his office, it’s natural that he be barred from being in that vicinity. Allowing him to stay around is risky because he is a threat to peace. In order to avert such threat, he should be sent out to another place to prevent possible conduct likely to cause breach of law and order in the vicinity.

So, I advise the Anambra State government to relocate these 12 traditional rulers from their communities to avoid a situation likely to cause breach of public peace. The businessman (Arthur Eze) who took them to the Abuja trip should be punished for sabotage.

Alor community in Idemili Local Government Area of the state (where Ngige hails from) had protested against the suspended monarch, MacAnthony Okonkwo for being part of the Abuja trip.
