Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, on Friday, revised the suspension of three traditional rulers who travelled to Abuja without the state government’s approval.

Tribune Online gathered that the three traditional rulers were among the 12 suspended in September 2020 for allegedly travelling out of their domain to Abuja, without seeking permission to do so. 

The three monarchs had joined billionaire oil mogul, Prince Arthur Eze, on a trip to Abuja to visit President Muhammadu Buhari.

In the statement, the Commissioner, wrote: “His Excellency, Governor Willie Obiano, in a new year act of magnanimity, has decided to lift the suspension of three traditional rulers.

“The affected Igwes are: Igwe NN. Kelly Nkeli – Igbariam, Igwe Dr. Emeka Ilouno – Ifitedunu, and Igwe Peter Uyanwa – Ukwulu.”
