This is in accordance with the directives of the member representing Ikwuano State Constituency of Abia, State, Rt. Hon. Boniface Isienyi, in his quest to ensure that the bags of rice mapped out for the entire Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State were fairly distributed among various clans and villages.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with famousreporters.com, the President -General of Ikwuano Development Union-Federated, (IDU-F), Dr. Charles Uzondu applauded the outstanding wisdom of the House of Assembly Representative as demonstrated in his deduced formula for the sharing of the said palliative.

“We met here yesterday to prepare and agree on the strategy for the sharing and that’s why it’s peaceful and you can see, it’s not a party thing. So, we agreed that it passed through the PG’s of various clans and Women leaders.
We have faith in our women that when they are there, the right thing will be done.
Asked whose knowledge was deployed to ensure a tranquil atmosphere during the distribution of the bags of rice, Uzondu, said:
“Isienyi came up with this new suggestion thus bringing community stakeholders into it. So, it is his wisdom and the fact that he listens to positive suggestions from people of good conscience that led to this improved sharing formula.
And, so far, everybody seems very happy with what is going on.
“Meanwhile, we agreed that the sharing pattern will be per village, where each village gets nine (9) bags.
“The reason for this formula is that there traditional villages; so whenever there is a thing of this kind, we go back to the original formula which is the ideal way.
“However, we also took cognisance of what we described as Resident Communities, and these communities are Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, National Roots Crops Research Institute, ((NRCRI), ABSU Campus m, Government College, Umudike.
“Also, we ensured that the Police and Army in the Council were duly incorporated.
Meanwhile, he described Isienyi as a humble leader with listening ears, adding, “he is someone who is ever ready to take corrections and he relates well with everyone in the community.
However, he used the medium to charge the sons of Ikwuano both those resident in the country and in diaspora to as endeavour to always accord decorum to those in authority among them, stressing that according respect to the leaders of the community is part of the culture of the people of Ikwuano.
“I want to admonish Ndi Ikwuano to show respect to their leaders at all levels. They should also understand the difference between critiquing and criticising. We should show respect to our leaders both political leaders, traditional rulers, and the communities’ stakeholders. This is part of the culture of Ikwuano people.”
