This is contained in a statement signed by Ugonna Martins, Esq and made available to TheNigeriaLawyer (TNL)

“Gratitude is the least of all virtues, but when disregarded becomes the worst of vices. Even Our Lord Jesus Christ emphasized on the need for a grateful heart in when he healed the ten leapers. (Lk 17: 7)

“Sequel to the above, people of Ihekwuenu Autonomous Community wish to express their heartfelt gratitude first, to God for his grace and protection and second to the amiable Governor of Enugu State Rt Hon. Ifeanyi Lawrence Ugwuanyi for the peaceful resolution on the issue regarding President-General in our autonomous community as well as many other good works he has been doing for us. We profoundly thank the people’s Governor for putting to rest this tussle, which had affected the spirit of camaraderie in our community.” it reads

The community also thanked the Commissioner of Rural development for standing on the path of justice. They commended his diligence, arbitral skills, and his ability to sieve truth from lies

They said “In a special way, we want to extend our appreciation to the Hon. Commissioner for Rural Development, Hon. Prince Emeka Mama for his unshakeable determination to stand in the path of Justice despite all odds. The attitude of the Commissioner, his actions and verdict over the dispute proved that Enugu State is indeed in the hands of God, which is the slogan of our impeccable Governor who is not just a peace maker but an achitect of peace in Enugu State and Nigeria at large.

“Notwithstanding the external self-centered tin gods who steered and stired few self-infatuated individuals in our community, the Commissioner diligently severed the truth from the baggage of lies heaped on his table. His arbitral skills during the time of this crisis and his sincere interest in foisting a legal and upright foundation in our community is highly commendable. Therefore, the good people of Ihekwuenu community will forever remain grateful to him for this peaceful resolution.”

The President General of Ihekwenu Town Union himself, Prof. G. C. E. Mbah, was appreciated for his efforts in making sure that peace reigns. The members of the community and field soldiers were also appreciated for their sacrifices

“As the beneficiaries of this peaceful resolution, it will amount to great injustice if we fail to appreciate the struggle and efforts put in place by the President General himself and all other good people of Ihekwuenu Community. We are not ignorant of the sacrifices and the communal spirit put in place for the actualization of peace in our community, Ezechitoke gbaa unu ume. With a grateful heart we appreciate also the field soldiers, who were on ground to see to the actualization and restoration of peace in our community, you people are wonderful!”

The community congratulated the new leadership and described the Executive members as “people with impeccable standard of integrity” who have good intention of leading the community forward. They urged the new leaders to be magnanimous and carry everyone along.

The statement reads in part

“We therefore say a very huge congratulations to the newly elected executive of Ihekwuenu Town Union, ably led by the people’s choice and son of the soil, Prof. G.C.E. Mbah, the PG of all the PGs. No doubt, the set of people that formed the town union executive committee are people with impeccable standard of integrity and good intentions to lead our community forward.

“We are greatly happy for their noble achievement in and for the entire Ihekwenu community. From the beginning of the crisis, the PG we know and our elders assured us that darkness can never overshadow light, they stood by their words and saw to its fulfilment. As the Lord who is the maker of King has entrusted you people with these positions, we humbly urge the executive members to kindly carry everybody along. In this resolution, there is no sectional victor and no sectional vanquished. Rather, Ihekwuenu as a whole is victorious. There is nothing wrong in fighting for a course but there is everything wrong in not knowing the limit. Therefore, we should work together; we forget the past because the future of Ihekwuenu is very Bright.

“East, West, North and South, there is no place like home. We therefore call on every well meaning sons and daughters of Ihekwuenu Autonomous Community to kindly join hands together with our Town Union Executives to make our Community a better and befiting place for us all..

“Congratulations Prof G.C.E. Mbah and all the town Union executive members, together we shall make Ihekwuenu Great.
