The Odohzia Ebonyi Campaign council has said its attention has been drawn to a video making the rounds in Social media platforms where the Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Umahi raised a false alarm that the APGA Governorship candidate in Ebonyi 2023 election plans to attack him and the APC team during its proposed rally today in Ezza North Local Government Area of the State.
In a statement made available to 9News Nigeria by the Director, Media and Publicity
Odohzia Ebonyi Campaign council, Mr Charles Otu said Umahi who had made the hasty and fallacious claims yesterday during an APC rally at Ugbodo, the council headquarters of Ebonyi Local Government Area among other vituperative utterances customary of his person and style and undignifying of the high office he occupies challenged our peaceful and peace-loving Governorship candidate, Odoh to dare him.
According to him, “this is coming even as we are still in shock and mourning two officers in our campaign team who we lost during an assassination attempt on our Governorship candidate from gunmen suspected to be members of Ebubeagu militia at Okpoto in Ishielu Local Government Area of the State.”
” Knowing the Governor’s modus of always raising false alarms and exposing his plans whenever he’s ‘high’ in public, anyone who carefully heard or watched Umahi speak during the said rally must be suspect that he must have a game up his sleeves in his proposed rally in Ezza North LGA today, where incidentally our guber candidate hails from. Besides, we have also gotten hints on good authorities that the APC campaign train is allegedly planning to set themselves against themselves like they did during it’s rally in Isu, Onicha Local Government Area and then heap the blames on the peace-loving Odohzia Ebonyi Campaign council which has been going about it’s campaigns with utmost modesty and decorum.”
” It is therefore our wisdom to draw the attention of security agencies, the media, Nigerians and the rest of the world to the evil plots allegedly being hatched by the APC-led government in Ebonyi State to probably cause monumental violence and wreck havoc in the home Local Government Area of our Governorship candidate. We are still saddened and yet in a mourning mood over the loss of our gallant officers and those still receiving treatments in the hospital.”
“Again, we reiterate that APGA, Ebonyi State Chapter and indeed, the Odohzhia Campaign council has no plans whatsoever either now or in the future to attack any candidate who is going about his peaceful electioneering campaigns!”.
