At a church service at St Mary’s Pro-cathedral, the auxiliary bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev. Ernest Obodo, asked the traditional ruler to see his ascension to the throne as a call to service, urging him to discharge his new responsibility without fear or favour and to see all indigenes of Udi as his subjects.

“You are, therefore, lucky to have been chosen as a man to sit on the exalted traditional throne of the Udi,” Obodo said, adding, “Your educational qualification, operational exploits, and social connection have placed the people of Udi in your care.”

Responding, Igwe Anene appealed to the indigenes of the town to join hands with him to restore the lost glory of Udi ancient kingdom.

He also appealed to politicians from the town to be united, irrespective of political party affiliation, to attract government attention and infrastructural projects to the town. NAN.
