My Government, contrary to insinuations, won’t be hijacked, says Ebonyi Gov, Nwifuru

Ebonyi News

Ebonyi State Governor, Rt Hon Francis Nwifuru has allayed fears in some quarters that his government will not be hijacked by both internal and external political actors.

Recall that a group— the Association of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural In Diaspora, AEISCID had in a release signed by its president, Paschal Oluchukwu accused the Ebonyi Governor of lethargy to run his government evidenced by the delay in cabinet composition.
The group also alleged that ex-governor David Umahi still supervise projects even outside power, reason for their concerns.

But Governor Nwifuru Tuesday assured that his government will not be run by hackers, neither will any homegrown forces derail his delivery of The People’s Charter of Needs.

Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Monday Uzor PhD, the Governor described the organisation as “amorphous” making ” cheap and amorphous statements”, even as it “struggled to descend on the arena of infamy”.

Part of the statement reads:

“Without condescending to the level of the said group, it is pertinent to note that the issues raised in the so-called press release and whatever they sought to achieve came dead on arrival as the Governor will not be distracted by their naked dance.

“Governor Francis Nwifuru is not only in charge of his government but has the support and love of the entire people of the state who have absolute confidence in his ability to deliver on his campaign promises to Ebonyi people.

“It is on record that the appointment of ‘kitchen cabinet’ as contained in their diatribe remains the prerogative of the State Chief Executive and has nothing to do with performance, especially for a governor who just took over a few days back.

“The Governor is taking his time to assemble professionals in various areas to help him drive down his policies and programmes and therefore will not be stampeded by any faceless group into rushing into appointments just to favour a certain group whose struck in trade is to fight every administration in Ebonyi State.

“The appointment of Principal Officers as alleged by this group does not in any way signify strength nor weakness of the present administration under Governor Nwifuru.

“As a lawmaker, the Governor fully understands the principle of separation of power as enshrined in the Nigerian constitution and will at the fullness of time and in the full constitution of the legislative arm of government, send names of his Commissioner nominees and other appointees to the House of Assembly for screening and possible confirmation.

“The Governor however enjoins the good people of Ebonyi State to continue to support his administration as he has put every effort to bring experienced and worthy hands to bear in the governance of the State without succumbing to the whims and caprices of the opposition elements masquerading in the name of the so-called group.

“Governor Nwifuru had made it clear that no amorphous group or elements can cause disaffection between him and his predecessor, the immediate past Governor and therefore calls on those fanning such embers to desist from such”
