Ebonyi State government yesterday raised the alarm that some ‘failed’ politicians in the state have resorted to using fetish and voodoo powers to attack the state governor, Chief David Umahi, his deputy, Mr. Kelechi Igwe and other state executive council members with the aim of bringing down the government.
The state commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Senator Emmanuel Onwe disclosed this while briefing journalists on the outcome of this week’s state executive council meeting held at the Government House, Abakaliki.
Senator Onwe alleged that politicians in the past administration who are hell bent on bringing the government down have been consulting rural shrines and holding several community meetings.
According to him; “There are people who want to distract the government. For example, those people go to rural shrines and organise community meetings to attack members of the exco or create scenario that will distract members of exco. They are warned to desist from such acts as this government will resist it”.
The Information commissioner maintained that the state government would not allow the bad influence of the previous administration to distract it saying that such influence would be vehemently resisted.
He said empires rise and fall but one of the greatest and most consistent part of history is that empires fall because of conspiracies.
Senator Onwe added that the same way, government and administration fall is not usually deliberate but because of internal contradiction and personal ambitions and he cited the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan as a victim of such anomaly.
He said during the immediate past administration of Governor Martin Elechi, the state had more than five de facto governors and each at every point in time were seen asserting his own authority, a situation that killed government’s good objectives and intentions.
He said Umahi has warned his appointees during the state executive council meeting that there would not be more than one governor.
as was the case in the past .administration and also warned that the Government would not tolerate any internal contradictions and clash of interests.
“But it would appear that bad elements; the hand over of the previous administration are attempting to infiltrate the government but such attempt will be totally, absolutely and vehemently resisted. Onwe emphasized. Ends
