Ebonyians caution Umahi on dismissal of political appointees

        Governor David Umahi.

In Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State, key stakeholders  have expressed worry over Governor David Umahi's dismissal of his political appointees in few days after his defection from Peoples Democractic Party, PDP to All Progressives Congress, APC.

The stakeholders told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, that the decision of Governor Umahi to reposition the government is in the right direction but expressed worry over the sacking of his political appointees without delay.

The stakeholders shared their views on Sunday in separate interviews with the NAN while reacting on the governor’s action.

The governor had between November 20 and 21, dismissed his political appointees, boards, and commissions in the state, after his defection to ruling party at the centre, APC.

Mr. Alex Nnachi, a stakeholder, described Governor Umahi’s actions as contradictory, especially now that the people were already pleased with his defection.

“You do not force people to accept your decisions, instead you can woo them to your side,” Nnachi said.

Another stakeholder, Mr. Samuel Ogodo, told NAN that the development will automatically give birth to antagonism.

Ogodo explained:  “If the governor wanted his political ambition to move forward and promote inclusiveness, as well as enhance service delivery in the state, there should not be any substitute to development no matter the party affiliation.

“Generally, he has given reasons for his defection but those he sacked have automatically become his enemies,” Ogodo said. -NAN.
