Impeachment: Leader Jude Ukori Expresses Concern Over Warri North Councillors And Asekutu’s Imbroglio


A prominent PDP leader and the immediate past chairman of the Egbema/Gbaramatu Communities Development Foundation (EGCDF), Amb. (Comr.) Jude Ebitimi Ukori (JP), has expressed his concern over the recent decision by the Warri North local government legislators to bar their chairman, Hon. Smart Asekutu, from accessing the accounts.

Tension and mistrust have arisen between councillors and the executive arm as a result of this, and leaders are now calling for a peaceful resolution to be reached. Amb. Ukori, who revealed this information to Newsmen over the phone, stated,”I want to express my concern about the purported resolve to stop the local government chairman from accessing the council’s account.

I understand that the situation has caused tension and distrust among the legislators and the executive, and I urge you to think carefully before taking any further action.”Amb. Ukori called on Hon. Asekutu to take the initiative in resolving the issue by convening a private meeting with his councillors.”I also want to urge the local government chairman, Hon. Smart Asekutu, to take the initiative and call his councillors to a private meeting so that they can resolve these issues together.

Additionally, I encourage all parties to work together in good faith to ensure a peaceful resolution.Also, Amb. Ukori called on the people of Warri North not to give the motion of the councillors any ethnic coloration, and they should desist from dragging the name of Hon. Godwin Ebosa.I also want to use this medium to call on my brothers not to drag Hon. Godwin Ebosa into this issue, as I believe the councillors are working within the ambits of the law.

Hon. Ebosa is a prominent leader of Warri North’s local government, and it would be wrong to connect him to the actions of the councillors. The Ijaws and Itsekiris have worked hard to maintain harmonious relations, and it would be a shame to see any kind of ethnic coloration in this process.

He concluded by saying, “I trust that the Warri North Local Government Legislative Arm will carefully consider the appeal of well-meaning leaders of our LGA and opt for a peaceful solution.”He urged all parties to work together in good faith to ensure a peaceful resolution and to consider the appeal of well-meaning leaders of the local government.
