Ebonyi APC Urges Public To Disregard Alleged Statement Credited to Gov Umahi Over Anambra Guber Poll

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Ebonyi State, have reacted to an alleged statement credited to Ebonyi State Governor, Engr David Nweze Umahi by one Mr Chijinkem Ugwuanyi on Facebook, over the November 6th Gubernatorial election in Anambra State, stating that such statement never emanated from the leader of the party in the state.

In a statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Ogbuatu Chidi Simbad and sent to Ebonyi Times Newspaper, called on the public to disregard such false alarm as it is a product of fake news peddlers. His statement reads in full;

"The attention of the All Progressives Congress, APC Ebonyi State has been drawn to a statement shared on Facebook by one Chijinkem Ugwuanyi and credited the same to the Chairman, Southeast Governors' Forum, leader of great party, APC and Executive Governor of Ebonyi State, His Excellency Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi FNSE FNATE, reacting to the outcome of the Anambra governorship election that was held on 6th November, 2021.

"We wish to state categorically, that the statement did not come from the leader of our party and Executive Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi. It is important to note that every member and leader of APC wishes the party well at all times, especially the Governor of Ebonyi State whose prominence and uncommon commitment in the party affairs are nationally recognized, but then, His Excellency, Chief David Umahi has not issued any statement in respect of the outcome of the yet to be concluded governorship election in Anambra State. The governor will give a statement when there is need and necessity to do so.

"We also wish to remind the general public that His Excellency, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi has not forgotten that he is the leader of Southeast zone by the virtue of his position as the Chairman, Southeast Governors'Forum. To that effect, the governor is always mindful of his choice of words and actions in any issue relating to the zone, so as not to be bias, no matter who is involved despite the fact that he is in APC.

"We therefore, call on our members and the public to disregard the statement as it is the handwork of mischief makers as the said Ugwuanyi is not known to Ebonyi APC or any organ of the Party".
