We are particularly delighted to most heartily salute Nde Mbaise for their courage and resilient spirit in rejecting to bestow an honorary chieftaincy title on Gov. Okorocha’s son-in-law, Uche Nwosu at this year’s Iri ji Mbaise cultural festival.
Sincerely speaking, by all standard, Governor Okorocha and his In-law, Uche Nwosu ,do not deserve such honorary chieftaincy title. In Igbo ethnology, chieftaincy titles are only conferred on people of high reputation and dignity with selfless disposition, not people of questionable integrity who have committed several atrocities against the people and gods of the land.
To be candid, honoring Governor Okorocha’s son-in-law with such a highly respected chieftaincy title is an indirect way of coronating impunity and desecrating the sacredness of the age long Iri Ji cultural festival of Nde Mbaise. This is a Governor who has shown total disrespect to the traditional institution and cultural heritage of the people.
Also, it was the same Governor Okorocha who caused the crisis that disrupted the 2014 Iri Ji Mbaise festival at Chioma Ajunwa stadium Ahiazu Mbaise. Is it not ironical that today the same Governor Okorocha is surreptitiously seeking for a conferment of honorary chieftaincy title on his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu in this year’s Iri Ji Mbaise ?
However, we sincerely commend Nde Mbaise both home and abroad, Ezurezu Mbaise and some eminent Traditional Rulers of Mbaise for not allowing themselves to be hoodwinked and lured by Governor Okorocha and his deceitful antics into profaning this year’s Iri ji festival.
