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”.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.
