Jan 2, 2021 (Nyamilepedia) — A senior SPLM-IO member of the National Liberation Council (NLC) has called out the people advocating for the creation of the Apadang Administrative Area in Upper Nile State saying that it is unreasonable.
Some people from the Padang community have been calling for their own administrative area in the Upper Nile state should General Johnson Olony be nominated as the governor of the State.
In a Statement, Dut Majokdit rubbished their demand saying that it is a violation of the Revitalized Peace Agreement.
“Those who are advocating for unreasonable creation of Apadang Administrative Area in Upper Nile State should immediately forget about that move, it’s a subtle violations of the Revitalized Peace Agreement. There is no ground to Reject Olony it’s the lack of political will to frustrate the whole thing by what so call SPLM-IG” he said.
General Olony was nominated by the SPLM-IO for the position of Upper Nile State governor but he is yet to be appointed by the president as there have been back and forth between the president and the first Vice President Dr Riek Machar.
He added that he doesn’t understand why there is a delay in the appointment of Colony as the governor.
“I don’t know what is delaying the appointment of General Johnson Olony since the SPLM-IG or the ITGONU took the state Deputy Governor from SSOA in exchange for two State Ministerial Portfolios,” the senior opposition official added.
Dut Majokdit called for the immediate appointment of General Johnson Olony Thabo, hinting that a delay in the appointment is wasting time for the participation of the upcoming Conference in Juba.
