  • Ebonyi governor
    swears in 13
    council chair
    Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi Tuesday
    swear in the newly elected 13 council Chairmen
    in the state.
    The Governor during the event at the Ecumenical
    Center called on the newly elected Council
    Chairmen in the state to deliver democracy
    dividends for the people which is the most
    reason why they were elected.
    He said sharing money meant for the
    development of the local governments will not be
    their legacies but the projects they were able to
    put in place in their various local governments.
    He maintained that only E-voting will end the
    bloodshed, rigging, and other criminalities in
    Nigeria electoral system and ensure rapid
    development in the country.
    Ebonyi State local government elections took
    place last Saturday and the people’s Democratic
    party PDP won in all the 13 local government
    areas and 171 ward counselors in the State.
    Umahi said “there is a context, context of
    bringing the money let us share and context of
    development. But the truth is that there no
    amount of money that is shared that will become
    your legacies. It is those projects, it is those
    lives you have impacted upon positively that will
    count for you today and tomorrow.
    “Do not fail to work for the people, when you
    work for the people you are working for God and
    there is no one that fights you when your heart is
    on God that will succeed.
    “It is important that whoever that wants to
    contest an election is allowed to contest the
    election. Nobody is going to beg anybody not to
    contest election again in Ebonyi state.
    “We are advocating for E-voting both in our party
    and to show an example to INEC. I believe that
    when E-voting comes to be, every leader will
    face the people and we will begin to realize that
    power belongs to God and God manifest himself
    through the people and that when the process of
    healing will begin in our country.
    “It is not a question of during election you share
    money and you are brought to power, you don’t
    come to your constituency until the day of
    another election
