Governor Peter Obi: to get chieftaincy title

œObi had explained that it was only after his tenure that a chieftaincy title conferred on him would make a meaning because titles acquired while in office may be product of sycophancy,” Idigo said.

He said the grand finale would be on March 17, when Gov. Obi would officially hand-over to the new governor, Mr Willie Obiano.

œThere will be an inauguration parade and swearing-in ceremony of the new governor and to round-off the events, there will be an inaugural ball at the Governor™s Lodge, Amawbia near Awka,” he said.
