Court Judgements: We Don't Have Two Governments In Ebonyi - Elders Council Warns

Following the recent varying court Judgements on the defection of Governor David Umahi and his Deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe, from the opposition party, PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, the Ebonyi State Elders Council on Friday, warned against any act that can trigger violence in the state, noting that there's no two government in Ebonyi State.

Chairman of the Elders council, Engr Ben Okah, in a press briefing noted that Ebonyi State has enjoyed relative peace in the state and cannot watch any group cause a breach of peace in the state.

Engr Ben Okah said;
"On the mandate of Ebonyi State Council of Elders,we have called this Press Conference to express our solidarity with the Governor and people of Ebonyi State in general and wish to state as follows:

"That we are very happy with the performance of the Governor Engr Dave Nweze Umahi in Ebonyi State vis avis solid infrastructural development,solid long term development plans for Ebonyi State and solid stride in building human infrastructure.

"We are happy with the peace and tranquility existing in Ebonyi because of the security apparatuses set up in the state particularly the Ebubeagu outfit which has limited the rate of crime drastically.

"We are happy with the even spread of infrastructure and appointments in all the local governments of Ebonyi State

"We have confidence that the Governor with all his achievements in the state and with limited resources can do well as the President of Nigeria.

"We are however very disturbed by the antics of some elements based in Abuja and those who belong to the PDP political party. These people are hell bent on distracting the smooth running of Ebonyi State Govenment and hence attempting to ruin the peace and tranquility existing here.
6.One of the reasons for the giant developmental strides of Governor Dave Umahi is because of the peaceful atmosphere that pervades all nooks and crannies of the state.

"We cannot therefore stand akimbo while these destructive elements whose track records are well known ruin Ebonyi State.

"We condemn vehemently the action of these people who have taken their fights to an Abuja court to canvass for the removal of Govermor Dave Umahi and his deputy from office for the reason of crossing from a moribund and a crisis ridden PDP to APC which has a great Leader President Muhammadu Buhari.A move which is to emancipate the lgbo race.

"These people who are guided by inordinate ambitions are employing every form of blackmail and fake information to cause mayhem in Ebonyi State

"We note also their ignoble intention to distort a long agreed gubernatorial zoning arrangement in Ebonyi and state that this will not be accepted at all.

"While they have their right to use legal means to pursue their ambitions they are warned not to visit the state with the mayhem of the past which memories are still with us.

"We appeal to every Ebonyian to remain calm and go about their businesses,ignore fake social media stories and pray for Peace.

"We also appeal to Governor Dave Umahi not to be distracted but to remain focused in executing his people oriented projects and programmes in Ebonyi State, Engr Okah concluded".
