Imo State: Ohaji/Egbema/Agwa Youth Council Sets For Another Election

An umbrella body, known as Ohaji/Egbema/Agwa Youth Council in Imo State, is set to hold her council election on the 12th of January, 2013. The body is an association of youths from the three (3) zones of Ohaji/Egbema in Ohaji/Egbema LGA and Agwa in Oguta LGA, all in Imo State, that donated their lands to the establishment of former Adapalm Nig. Ltd. Ohaji, now Imo Palm Plantation, managed by Roche Group.
In a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, Comrade Blaise Tochukwu Nwannenaya Elumezie, The National President of Umeiheoma Youth Council (UYC), Umukpo Agwa, Oguta LGA and one of the five (5) delegates from their unit in Agwa Zone of the Council, commended the outgoing Youth President of the Council, Comrade Uche Ogbonna and Mr. Bruno Ogbonna, Zonal Leader and the Electoral Committee Chairman for their doggedness in bringing the business of the council, closer to the youths, particularly to those in Agwa.
Elumezie disclosed that the council has over the time been monopolized by a single person in their unit, adding that the lapses in representation and losses encountered by his unit (UYC), was why he was elected as the National President, with Mr. Hermas Onumara, National Secretary and Mr. Prosper Okwudiri Obiero as the Public Relations Officer (PRO), amongst other 3 members in the National Executive Council (NEC), to address some of the lapses.
Elumezie further commended the Board of Trustees (BOT), Chairman of Ohazji/Egbema/Agwa Youth Council and the first President of the Council, Hon. Vitalis Jakponna, for his mentorship in the business of the council, which he said has sustained the body till date.
He lauded the Zonal Leader in Agwa and the ELECO Chairman of the Youth Council for sticking to harmonization and ensuring peace and stability in carrying out his assignment, for the best interest of the council.
Comrade Tochukwu used the medium to appeal to all Youth Presidents, Leaders, Zonal Leaders and BOT members from various units and zones of the council to ensure peace and unity, before and after the council election and called on his fellow delegates, to vote for him as the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the youth council, in the coming election. ###
