Umahi, the incumbent governor of the state, is the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate in the March 2, 2019 poll and will contest against the APC governorship candidate, Sen. Sonni Ogbuoji, who is believed to be his major challenger. Reacting to the rumour that the major opposition party in the state had already written the election results, the state government said it would mobilise the masses to resist any form of rigging during the elections.

Emmanuel Onwe, stated this on Monday during a world press conference in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital. “We heard that people have already written election results. It’s impossible here. You may write results elsewhere, not in Ebonyi State,” he said. He added that he would renounce his Nigerian citizenship if the rumours about election results in the state turned out to be true, adding that it would mean that Nigeria was no longer fit for habitation by humans.

The commissioner, who claimed there was no governor in the country that had performed like Umahi, stated that the greatest honour done to him by his principal was his appointment as the state’s image maker.

We will die to prevent electoral fraud in Ebonyi State.” Loading… <div class="wpusb-title"> <span>Share Post</span> </div> </div> </div> Leave A Comment Below Related share on: FacebookTwitter Google +Pinterest Tumblr Linked InEmailSend to Email Address:Your NameYour Email AddressEmail check failed, please try againCancel previous articleLibya’s Presidential Council calls Haftar-led strikes in the south “terrorist act”next articleWestern Sahara: Algeria and South Africa Renew Their Support to Saharawi People Right to Self-Determination and FreedomRelated PostsLatest Africanss News/February 22, 2019 /No Comment Why do faculty members protesting in Sabha University?Latest Africanss News/February 22, 2019 /No Comment COMESA, EU sign €10m facility to support private sector – Daily News EgyptSenegal: Suspicions Cloud Senegal’s Upcoming ElectionAfrica: In West Africa, UN Security Council Visits Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea-BissauEntrevista con el Coordinador de la Ventanilla Única EmpresarialBurkina Faso: President Chooses New Prime MinisterCote d’Ivoire: ICC Appeals Chamber Places Conditions on Gbagbo’s ReleaseOhanaeze, MASSOB, IPOB, Reaffirm Support for Atiku, ObiOhanaeze, MASSOB, IPOB, Reaffirm Support for Atiku, ObiOhanaeze, MASSOB, IPOB, Reaffirm Support for Atiku, Obi Leave a Response Cancel reply CommentName Email Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
