It is worth a mention that several months ago, A leadership crisis surrounded the Umuomaku Community. The situation further left the people without an elected President General of the town union and no Traditional Ruler for the people.

Here where the people would elect new leaders. The government is ready. Governor Soludo promised to give Ndi Anambra a livable and prosperous homeland.
