TRADITIONAL ruler of Umuawulu, Igwe Joel Egwuonwu has called on his subjects to embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ.

  Igwe Egwuonwu, who spoke to the press in his palace at Umuawulu frowned at idolatry which exist among some youths in his community and urged the adherents to turn a new leaf for their salvation to be actualised.

The royal father announced that since his ascendance to the throne in 2014, he has made it mandatory that every two years, powerful men of God are invited to the community for a special crusade to cleanse the land.

To this end, he noted that arrangements are in top gear to host Revd Dr. Uma Ukpai based in Akwa Ibom State to visit the community in June for a powerful crusade that will cut across religions denominations.

Igwe Ekwuonwu expects all well- meaning Christians to be part of spiritual exercise aimed at breaking evil of  yokes.

He used the forum to speak on some development projects in Umuawulu such as the ongoing street lights being put in place by the Governor Willie Obiano administration and the erecting of the permanent NYSC orientation camp at the Holy Cross High School, Umuawulu/Mbaukwu.

The monarch asked for more concerted government’s presence at the Holy Cross High School in the areas of fencing the school to forestall the illegal sale of the school land, and the provision of other facilities that will make the school function optimally.

He decried the condition of the school which was once the pride of the state and the old eastern region.

On government’s presences in Umuawulu, he noted that the community is in dire need of its attention and announced that the federal government has established its presence in the community especially in tackling the road passing in front of his palace with a provision for street lights among other projects.

Igwe Egwuonwu used the forum to announce that the former Girls Secondary School in Umuawulu has now been renamed, Union Secondary School, Umuawulu.

On his part, an indigene of Umuawulu, Chike Oranye, called for the rehabilitation of the HABA Bridge in Umuawulu before the rainy season comes into full force.
