Reacting to the press statement purportedly issued by 24 business organizations in Dimapur who objected to the election of the new DCCI president Kasheto Yepthomi as “unofficial”, the DCCI clarified that the meeting was held after wide publicity through the media, where all the 25 core executive members selected from among the business community and many from the business community attended.
According to DCCI executive member Azo, 25 executive members were to draft the DCCI constitution to make it fully functional with its new constitution. He said several meetings called in order to hold elections under the constitution. He however rued that “some vested interests began to interfere in the process” and that election began to “take political overtone with the involvement of the establishment”.
He said at the May 1 meeting, all the 25 executive members and many from the business community attended. It was the unanimous decision that interference from vested interests, including political and government “should not be allowed”. Having considered these developments, the house adopted the draft of the constitution and unanimously elected Kasheto Yepthomi as the new DCCI president.
Terming it as unfortunate that “vested interest persist with questionable action by resorting to press publications”, the DCCI member further clarified that it may invite business organizations to be affiliated with the DCCI only after they get registered.
Urging all right thinking citizens not to be swayed by such propaganda, the DCCI member assured it was keen to serve the people and to fight the many malaises plaguing business in Dimapur town.
