Umahi blasts APC over destruction of government facilities [PHOTOS]


The 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 anything while 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 the fact 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”.

Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
