Ezzagu Community in Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State has tackled the Special Assistant to Governor David Umahi, Chief Emmanuel Igwe, over his claim that stakeholders and Leaders of Thought from the community have endorsed some aspirants in the 2023 general election in the State.

In a statement issued by the National President of Ezzagu Zone General Assembly, Mr Tobias Offia, and National Secretary, Mr Michael Mbaba, the people of the community noted that they were never consulted or reached before taking the resolutions, alleging that the Governor’s aide “has no electoral value in the community.”

Titled “2023: Ezzagu Community Has Not Spoken”, the people said it was ridiculous and vote of incompetence that the Umahi's aide lacked the capacity to convene stakeholders meeting in Ezzagu community which made him and his cohorts to hide in one hotel at Abakalik to draft resolutions intended to represent the decision of the entire community.

“How can a political appointee lie to a government he is serving? Who are those he want to impress by claiming he had a meeting with stakeholders when he did not? It”s deceitful and misleading to the government he is serving because his presentation is fake.”

“We are aware that the plotters are merely seeking attention of the State Government, either to secure their jobs or justify any gratification for that purpose. However, the exercise is a total nullity and failure as the people of old Ezzagu zone were never consulted or reached before taking the resolutions.

“It is interesting to note that the said meeting was never held as the Special Assistant to the Ebonyi State Governor on Lands and Survey, Chief Emmanuel Igwe, only conscripted two other persons to endorse the communiqué.

“The resolutions are not only absurd but a mockery which should not be taken seriously, as it was the handiwork of a self-serving individual who wanted to be noticed.”

The Ezzagu community directed that all the endorsements should be cancelled and nullified until the people of the zone would review the political situation in the state before taking a definite stand.
