Chief Maurice Moses says he’s not prepared to step down following community move to oust him
Dec 05, 2019
The chief of the Pehdzeh Ki First Nation in Wrigley, N.W.T., says he won’t be stepping down as members of his community call for his resignation.
This is the latest development after 34 people attended a community meeting Wednesday, which resulted in a call for the resignation of the chief, his council and senior administration. They’re claiming the First Nation’s leadership has lost the moral authority to govern the community.
The group present at the meeting voted to draft a band council resolution calling for the ouster, have Lloyd Moses named interim chief, and hold new elections within six weeks.
“They said I’ve been mismanaging things, I’ve never mismanaged anything,” Maurice Moses told CBC late Thursday afternoon.
