Mrs Uloma Nwogu has been sworn in as the new executive chairman of Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State to replace Hon. Michael Ibe Nwoke.

Governor Ikpeazu said in consonance with the Laws guiding the Abia State Local Government System, Mr Nwoke breached the provisions of Section 23, Sub -section 1(f) of the Abia State local Government Law No. 2 of 2006, which makes it imperative for a new Chairman to be sworn in to take over the reigns of power at Obingwa Local Government.

He congratulated the new Chairman and enjoined her to protect the interest of Obingwa and Abia State by mainstreaming the interest of women and youths.
