“After several years of inertia, Achina town is about to emerge again as a formidable town to be reckoned with:

In the scheme of things in Anambra state, as we march forward to assume our rightful position among the 177 ( as of the time of this publication 181) communities in Anambra state.

True talk

However, the journey that brought us this far, has not been an easy one; especially, after decades of wrangling over Chieftaincy stool, which tore Achina town to shreds and left it prostate:

Leaving it with years of bitterness and bickering; years of litigations in the law court and the attendant animosity.

Today, the people of Achina have risen to celebrate the installation of Igwe without rancor but with love and fanfare.

We give the glory to God, for His Great Mercy.

And We thank Him for being gracious to us by giving us the privilege of being witnesses to this great moment in the history of Achina town once polarized over this stool.

The traditional process

My selection after years of careful search for the Igwe that will restore peace, love and unity, started in earnest with my being subjected to a screening committee:

Specifically set up to screen the candidates for the stool, headed, by our distinguished Ichie, Benedict Okpala.

The committee did a thorough job that gave me the confidence to believe in Achina town.

I was made to pass through the rigors of excruciating questions; I warned myself that Achina are not here for a tea party but for a serious business.

I therefore resolved to serve Achina town with total commitment.

What further strengthened my faith and confidence in this great town, Achina was the process of selection.

On 23rd December, 2009, the people marched out in their thousands to select, who they want to lead them.

The popular option A4 was adopted.

The men and women of this town that were of voting age, trooped out enmass, and queued behind us in the open field at the town hall.

The result is what we are today celebrating.

“Land of The Great”

I am humble by the way our people, queued behind me.

Achina town is populated with great men and women; people who are accomplished in their chosen fields of endeavors.

In your wisdom, you gave me the mantle to lead you as the traditional ruler of this great town, Achina; a town that has produced great men and women. I am humbled.

What else can I ask for, than to jointly seek with you, the grace of God; His knowledge and wisdom as we collectively direct the affairs of this town, which has been abandoned for years in the lurch like an orphan.

I cannot do it alone. I cannot embark on this life journey without your support.

Continue to stand behind me as you did on 23rd December 2009. The light lit on that day shall collectively be guarded so that it does not go off.

Royal Duty

After the celebration, are the enormous challenges that go with the office. I call on all well meaning sons and daughters of Achina to rally round me, to give value to this office.

Whatever contribution you can make, so that through this office, we can restore confidence, greater love and progress in this God`s own town Achina, please do not hesitate to do that.

Achina town need peace more than anything. With peace, we can achieve everything.

With peace the great potentials of this town Achina locked up all these years, I assure you, shall be unlocked.

Achina town will move forward as it had never done before.

All the years of locust shall be recovered within time if we all agree to come together and work as one.

The Royal Promise

My promise to God and the people of Achina as I stand before you today is that I shall lead and serve you with the fear of God.

Justice shall be my watchword, in my dealings with all manner of men. From you, I ask for your loyalty.

With love, we can achieve every other thing.

Let us appreciate the fact that I had never been an Igwe before now, I admit that we are undergoing a learning process.

Royal Hope

Whoever that has any good idea that will make this effort worth its while, please, let him come forward with it, for only the best is good for the people of Achina.

We do not need to be Millionaires before we can effectively contribute to the growth of Achina town.

Everybody has something to contribute. Contribute your quota. Do not remain aloof and judgmental.

Do not be more of an arm chair critic. Come out and positively make your own contribution.

Be one of the actors and not spectators and it shall be well with Achina.”
