Emerengwa accuses the LGA chairman, Hon. Samuel Wanosike of the destructing his constituency project in the area.
According to Mr Ovundah, it stated that Mr. Wanosike who has been in power tussle with Hon. Emerengwa has finally sent one Mr. Levi to destroy the constituency project sited at Omuagwa, the community home of the LGA Chairman.
He stated, “The Member Representing Ikwerre/Emohua at the Green Chambers, Rt. Hon. Barr. Boniface S.

He further described it as a barbaric act and condemned it.
“This act is barbaric, absurd and very condemnable.” he stated.
Mr. Wanosike has been in power tussle with Hon. Emerengwa, both of the PDP over who controls the party in the LGA. While it is rumoured that the House of Reps member has vowed to make sure Mr. Wanosike is not returned to office for the second time in an LGA election expected to take place next year, Mr. Wanosike is using all available means to see that he returns to office for a second term.
It is still not clear if Governor Nyesom Wike will support the second term bid of Mr. Wanosike as many claim that their relationship isn’t cordial like before, making it more difficult for any one to conclude the Mr. Wanosike will return.
