Council chairmen who work hard for bye-election victory will get second term – Ebonyi APC chair, Emegha

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ebonyi State Chapter, Stanley Okoro Emegha, said on Monday that local government chairmen that perform well in the forthcoming Ebonyi South Senatorial Zone bye-election will be given second term tickets.

Emegha disclosed this in a statement signed and made available to pressmen in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State.

He stressed that council area chairmen must perform convincingly towards the victory of the party’s senatorial candidate, Anthony Okorie Ani.

Emegha was responding to a statement credited to him, in which he allegedly stated that no council chairmen will return for a second term in office.

The statement reads in part: “I stated categorically clear that any chairman who did not win convincingly the Ebonyi South Senatorial District bye-election with about 85 to 95% of the ballot cast will not be given ticket to participate in the forthcoming local government area poll.

He also extended the directive to other government functionaries, stressing strict compliance with the rules of the game to ensure the success of the party in securing the mandate of the people.

“The same charge was extended to other government functionaries so that the party could secure the people’s mandate and cruise to victory at the end of the day.

“Actually, they were all persuaded to do the needful but with a clause to comply strictly with the rules guiding the game.”

He, however, implored the citizens and members of the party to disregard any information circulating within the state, saying that chairmen of the council areas won’t be given second-term tickets.
“I want the people of Ebonyi State as a matter of good conscience and public good to totally disregard it,” he added.
