Ahead of the Local Government Council election in Ebonyi State, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Francis Nwifuru, has declared that Ebonyi is completely an All Progressives Congress (APC)-controlled state.
Nwifuru, Ebonyi- State APC gubernatorial candidate for the 2023 general elections made the declaration in an interview with newsmen in Abakaliki, before his visit to political wards in the state for the party’s primary elections.
The Speaker assured members of the APC in the state of total victory at various levels of government, in the forthcoming general elections.
He, therefore, called for active participation of APC stakeholders in wards and Local Government Areas, to sustain the existing peace and unity among members of the party in the state.
According to him, “you know Ebonyi State is totally APC. That’s why I urge our stakeholders to be actively involved in our activities at the ward and local government levels, to ensure peace at the ward level.”
