Ebonyi State Governor-Elect and Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, has pledged to work with leaders of the Labour Party and Action Alliance over their support.

The All Progressives Congress, APC winner of March 18 governorship election appreciated the party leadership for their adoption as consensus candidate before the election.

According to him: “Your move to adopt me as your Gubernatorial Candidate proved that you have a wider picture of politics. It made me stand strong and weakened my opponents psychologically. Even if you did not vote for me, that singular act of adopting me is enough.

“You made an adoption and God answered your prayers. It is a must that I will accommodate you people in my Government because you worked for it.

“I am not going to be a Governor of one or two persons. I’ll be Governor for all because the people’s taxes that I’ll manage is for everyone. I know that managing failure is easier than managing success, but I’ll make you proud.” – Nwifuru said.

He further praised the former Labour Party gubernatorial Candidate, Arc. Edward Nkwegu for his consistency in growth and mentorship.

Earlier in their speeches, the State Chairman of the Party, Godwin Jioke, Gubernatorial Candidate, Sir Edward Nkwegu and House of Representatives Candidate, Pharm. Tony Ekoh noted that they were fulfilled with the outcome of the Gubernatorial elections, hence their visit to congratulate him.
