GOVERNOR of Ebonyi State,
David Umahi, has condemned the
vandalization, destruction, and
defacing of Abakaliki by factions of
All Progressives Congress (APC) in
the state as they rally support for
President Muhammadu Buhari.
Umahi stated this while reacting
to reports that the APC supporters
in their ongoing rallies were burning
tires on the roads and pasting posters
on the beatified walls and flyovers in
the state capital.
He said it broke his heart to see
the roads and facilities put in place
by his government being destroyed
by people who did not do anythingwhile in office.
Governor Umahi warned APC
and their supporters against taking
actions that might lead to the
breakdown of law and order in
the state through their rallies and
counter rallies.
He stated that his government was
not against their rallies whether in
support or against his administration,
but it would not tolerate actions that
could degenerate to violence and
bloodshed in the state.
The governor through his Chief
Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor
noted that in as much as the state
government is not oblivious of thefact that opposition is a veritable
ingredient of democracy, all
political actors in the state should
imbibe the rule of the game by
conducting themselves in an
manner that will not pose security
threats to the state.
He said: “The governor
condemns seriously the activities
of the two factions of APC and
advice them to put their house
in order as the state government
will not fold its hands to allow
few political hawks drag the
state back and destroy what his
administration has suffered to put
in place”.
