TOAN gets new chairman in Anambra

The deputy chairman, Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria(TOAN), Comrade Michael Onyekwelu, has assumed the seat of acting chairman of the  association in Anambra State, following the resignation of the immediate past chairman, Barrister  Sylvester Obiorah.

The new chairman was unveiled during a meeting organized by the leadership of the association for the branch chairmen which held in Awka South LGA Secretariat.

The acting chairman, Comrade Onyekwelu revealed that his ascension to the seat of the chairman of the association in Anambra State was consequent upon the resignation of the former Chairman of the association, Barrister Sylvester Obiorah as contained in the constitution of the union.

He promised that his leadership would run a transparent administration where the members of the association would be able to hold their leaders accountable in all situations.

The chairman, who noted that the affairs of the association was not a one man affair, but a collective responsibility of all members of the association, also assured that his regime would carry every member  along in its scheme of things.

Comrade Onyekwelu said that his leadership is among other things planning to organize a security programme for members of the association which would involve the police officers and officers of FRSC.

He described the relationship between the association and Anambra State Government as very cordial, noting that anybody in the association that is working against the present government is equally working against the activities of the union because the union contributed significantly during the election campaign of Gov Soludo in 2021.

Onyekwelu passionately appealed to the aggrieved members of the association to sheath their swords  and key into moving the association forward, describing the emergence of the Anambra  Special Anti-Tout Squade (SASA), as a prayer answered, adding that those among them who were working against SASA in the State were those benefiting from one thing or the other to the detriment of the association.

In his comment, the State Secretary of TOAN, Pastor Elvis Okolie, said that the meeting was consequent upon the resignation of the immediate past chair of the association and emergence of the acting chairman.

He said that he was excited with the acting chairman’s burning desire and passion to uphold the constitution of the association as well as running a  transparent and accountable system in discharging his duties.

Pastor Okolie said as a matter of fact that the  association is not fighting the government of Prof Charles Soludo at war with anybody in the state.

The branch chairmen of the Association, Comrade Prince Collins Ozojioforof Awka South branch, Chief Osita Doga of Oyi branch and Chief Arinze of Idemili  urged the acting chairman and his executives to work towards reorganizing the affairs of the association for better performance.
