Ebonyi Votes Are For APC Not Labour Or Any Other Party — Umahi

Gov. David Umahi yesterday said that Ebonyi people would en masse vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and not Labour or any other party.

He noted that he has decided on his consensus candidates for the forthcoming local government area elections in the state and urged that his wish be respected.

“The stakeholders should meet and decide where the councillorship positions should be zoned.

“We want to elect people who are popular and are capable of winning elections for us,” he said.

Umahi berated LGA leaders for the dismal number of registered voters in their areas with some recording as low as 2,000 voters in the ongoing registration exercise.

“I will sack commissioners and other appointees from local government areas which record fewer than 30,000 before the end of the continuous voters exercise.

“I hereby direct the deputy governor, among other stakeholders, to meet immediately and appoint five people in each registration centre who shall serve as polling administrators” he said.

The governor congratulated the new commissioners on their appointments and urged them to contribute positively as the administration anchors in 2023.

Mr Cletus Ofoke, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, said that the new commissioners were appointed to fill the vacuum created by the previous appointees who resigned to seek elective offices.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the new commissioners to include Chief Celestine Nwali for Capital City Development; Chief Romanus Nwasum for Infrastructural Development and Chief Chris Uchaji, Solid Minerals Development.
