The memorandum of understanding between Amichi and Anambra Progressives Development Union which will see the former donate land while the later cites Industrial Park was signed yesterday at the palace of his royal majesty, Igwe Ofobuike Ezeoke of Amichi at Imeobi Ezeoke.
An internal memo of APDU exclusively obtained by AMICHI MAGAZINE shows that that the official groundbreaking ceremony for the massive project will be held tomorrow 16th January 2021 at the proposed project site in Amichi. The letter reads:

However, in a sharp twist to the development, a letter obtained by AMICHI MAGAZINE signed by UMEORIMILI UME-EZEOKE ROYAL FAMILY shows that all is not well within the Ume-Ezeoke royal circle.
In the letter, stern warning was issues to anyone who is doing any land business with Igwe Ofobuike is doing so at his own risk, reiterating that the traditional ruler is not the representative of UMU UMEORIMILI Ume-Ezeoke royal family.
Palpable tension has gripped concerned citizens of the community as uncertainty greets the outcome of the MOU following the letter.
Recall that APDU had before now constructed a number of projects across the state, especially in the health sector.
AMICHI MAGAZINE shall continue to monitor the development.
