Protest Erupts Over Selection of Pastor Ebere Chukwu Eni as New Eze Aro

Aro Blog News Editor

In the wake of the recent selection of Pastor Ebere Chukwu Eni as the incoming Eze Aro of Arochukwu Kingdom, a group identifying themselves as "Mazi Kanu Okoro of the Okennachi Ruling House" has announced their intent to stage a protest against this decision. The announcement comes in response to the selection committee's declaration of Pastor Ebere Chukwu Eni as the new Eze Aro.

According to the protestors, their main grievance lies in the deviation from longstanding Arochukwu customs and traditions. They contend that the tradition stipulates that a son cannot be considered for the Kingship while his father is still alive, which they argue has not been upheld in this selection process.

The group also raises concerns regarding Pastor Ebere Chukwu Eni's perceived outsider status. They assert that it is non-traditional to open the selection of the Aro Throne to someone who will be serving the Kingdom from outside Arochukwu, contrary to the customary emphasis on community involvement.

Moreover, allegations of monetary influence in the selection process have further fueled the protest. The protestors argue that these allegations suggest that the election may have been manipulated to favor Pastor Ebere Chukwu Joshua Kanu Oji, undermining the integrity of the process.

The situation is gaining significant attention in Arochukwu, and this protest underscores the divisions and disagreements surrounding the selection of the new Eze Aro. Aro Okeigbo Blog obtained a copy of a letter from the Mazi Kanu Okoro Oke Nnachi Ruling House expressing their protest. The letter, which is addressed to the President General of the Okennachi Kindred Union, was shared with Aro Okeigbo Blog, and its contents are as follows:
