Ebonyi APC Boss Calls For Disqualification Of Candidates

Ahead of the Governorship and House of Assembly elections, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi State Chapter, Chief Stanley Okoro Emegha has called for the disqualification of some candidates over their alleged involvement in the murder of the councilor representing Echara ward 2, Okposi community in Ohaozara local government area of the State, Mr Ogbonnaya Ugwu, popularly known as Spaco.

Expressing displeasure over the ugly incident, Chief Emegha condemned the gruesome murder and called on the security agencies to speedily fish out the perpetrators to serve as a deterrence to others.

Chief Emegha opined, "the killings of our people because of political power is barbaric and uncalled for. Recall that I earlier raised the alarm that these people coming to contest Governorship position do not live in Ebonyi State. They are not on ground hence they are going to mobilize thugs to maim and kill people just to secure votes. 

"You all can attest that Governor David Umahi since he assumed office has been doing everything legally possible to ensure there is peace and unity in Ebonyi State. He has also done tremendously well in terms of the transformation of the State. So, why can't they give him support?  Why are they sending assassins to kill our brothers because of politics? 

"The councillor was brutally murdered. I don't know what they want to achieve? Even when he was shot, he still drove himself in search of where he could be given medical attention, they still trailed him till the time he became weak, hit his car somewhere, and couldn't drive again, before they burnt him inside his car".

"I wish to ask the members of the opposition parties such as LP, PDP, APGA, etc; are we not Ebonyians again? Why should someone because he wants to become a Governor send people to go and kill innocent ones? It's God who makes kings; people only come to celebrate with he that God has made a king. We are strongly suspecting the opposition. 

"Therefore, l want to let the IGP, DSS and INEC know that with the gravity of the crime some of these candidates have committed, they deserve to be disqualified because they can't finish killing the people they say they want to govern and the law will let them free. But one thing I'm sure is that what they are doing can't get them power, it will end up hunting them for life.

"On behalf of the APC in Ebonyi State, I call on the Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police and the Director of DSS to fish out the killers of the councillor for them to face the full wrath of the law".
