Shell landlords set new constitution


Members of the Joint Shell Resident Area Landlord Association, comprising Mgbuesilari, Rumuibekwe, Rumukwurusi and other neigbouring communities in Obio/Akpor Local government will on Sunday January 23, 2005 at the Rumuibekwe Town Hall sign and adopt their constitution.

Members of the Joint Shell Resident Area Landlord Association, comprising Mgbuesilari, Rumuibekwe, Rumukwurusi and other neigbouring communities in Obio/Akpor Local government will on Sunday January 23, 2005 at the Rumuibekwe Town Hall sign and adopt their constitution.

Speaking at the second reading of the constitution last Sunday, the paramount ruler of Mgbuesilari, Eze Ejike Wali stated that the essence of allowing the constitution to pass series of readings was to ensure that there was to allow amendment before final adoption.

The Nye-we-ali of Mbuesilari who moderated proceedings of the day stressed that they need to make things clear because of the difficulties in identifying where the membership of residential area and industrial area can be known.

Eze Ejike charged members of the constitution drafting committee not to leave any stone unturn by remaining focused in concluding their assignment. He thanked indigenes of the various communities for attending. He maintained that by the next meeting of the body all the issues relating to the constitution will be concluded and that the procedure for those who will run the affairs of the association will also be made known.

Telegraph gathered that one of the articles in the constitution that attracted a heated debt has to do with the actual age or eligibility of those who will be elected to pilot the ship of the association.

Contributing to the debate, a councilor in the Obio/Akpor Legislative Assembly representing Ward 6 in the area, Hon. Cyprian Elewa suggested that the age of the contestants for the forth coming election should be raised from 30-35 for some of the key positions.

On his part the secretary of the association Dr. Stanley Amadi maintained that the normal age for those seeking election as principal officers had been 30 years, adding that, wisdom has nothing to do with age.

Votes were later cast with 30 years and above approved for those seeking election into any of the association's offices
