UGA Presidency: Otuocha Clan gets the nod

Umueri- 14th May 2010.

In Line with the Constitution of Umueri General Assembly, Otuocha Quarters of Umueri is to fill the post of UGA Presidency comes next dispensation. This was after a lot of arguments in favour of which clan should fill the exalted seats. This even led to a legal tussle between a faction of UGA believed to be led by a Politician and One time Constitute Assembly Member from Ivite Umueri.

It has also buried the earlier arrangement in which the Otuocha Slot was agreed to be filled automatically by an Ivite Umueri candidate from Otuocha. This was as agreed in peace negotiation initiated by Umueri Recreation Club. But the failure of the other faction of Umueri General Assembly to pull the case out from court as agreed in that peace parley has necessitated this whole turn around as the UGA now insists that the slot will be for Otuocha Community as a whole according to the incumbent President General, Chief Goddy Obidike when contacted on the issue.

However, the date for the new election has not been known at the time of the press but its believed that a General Meeting of Umueri General Assembly would be called soon to fix a date for the forthcoming Election.
