Negative reactions have continued to trail the statement by Tagbo Osita Nnamani, factional chairman of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, Enugu chapter who accused the Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of “executive recklessness.”
Nnamani had faulted the recent indefinite suspension of IPMAN’s operations in the state by governor Ugwuanyi. According to Nnamani, ” Ugwuanyi has no such powers.”
However, while supporting the action of the governor in dousing tension in the state, another faction of the association, led by Chief Ikechukwu Nwankwo, Odogwu Amodu, commended the governor’s action and as well, exonerated him of any wrong doing. He opined the governor’s action was on track.
Nwankwo said “as the Chief Security Officer of the State, the primary duty of securing lives and maintaining peace in his state through whatever legal means he deems fit and necessary rests with him.
“He therefore commended the governor’s efforts at curtailing the unruly activities of some of elements of IPMAN that refused to abide by the rule of law.
In a telephone chat, Nwankwo said: “I am the duly elected chairman of IPMAN Enugu Depot Unit, and all was well till the recent emergence of the Tagbo Nnamani led faction.”
