They described the Governor’s constitution of an interim management committees as unlawful and illegal.

The ALGON chairman, Emeka Osuorji told DAILY POST that they would continue to apply legal means until justice was done, recalling that the immediate past government of Emeka Ihedioha also turned deaf ear to their agitation.

“We thought that the Governor, as a product of law and justice and of course, as a Governor of our great party, APC, will do things differently.
