THE traditional ruler of Abacha, Idemili North LGA, Igwe Godwin Nwabunwanne Odiegwu has celebrated his maiden Ofala Festival with a call to the people of the state to give Gov. Charles Soludo maximum support to excel, noting that from the impressive achievements the governor has so far recorded from the little time he has stayed in office, that he is convinced that if given maximum support, he will achieve more than all his predecessors in office.
Canvassing for this support as part of his maiden Ofala address at Abacha Community Stadium, Igwe Odiegwu while expressing gratitude to God for making the occasion a reality, commended the Anambra State Government for their efforts and commitments to town developments in the state, even as he also acknowledged the co-operation of the town’s indigenes to ensure that a new era of peace and joy was kick-started in the town after a moment of retrogression.
Commenting on the Abacha kingship throne which he has assumed, he pledged to uphold the sanctity of the throne as well as carry all the town citizens along irrespective of status.
