"The good works of the state governor, His Excellency, Rt Hon Bldr Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru which is anchored on the "people's charter of needs" should be replicated at the grassroot and at Ezza North in particular to ensure even development in the state.

 "We have had leadership failure in the council steered by old politicians and we can't risk having old person again as our council boss. We need a youth with vision to lead the council for the good of the people.
