Governor of Ebonyi State Engr. David Umahi has reacted to the trending news from the Ebonyi South APC senatorial aspirant princess Ann Agom- Eze over the fresh primary election slated for Sunday, July 31st, 2022.
Ann had appealed the federal high court judgment which gave an order for a fresh primary to accommodate new aspirants.
But in a statement signed by Chooks Oko SA (Media & Strategy) to the Governor Umahi with the heading ” Mrs Ann Agom Eze is at it again”, Governor Umahi is said to be ready for the Ebonyi South Senatorial APC rerun elections set for Sunday, 31st July, 2022
The statement quoted Umahi as an aspirant who hopes to receive the nod of his APC to stand in the 2023 elections as their candidate in that senatorial zone.
The Statement read in parts, “The attention of Ebonyi state Governor has once again been drawn to the bizarre antics of Mrs. Ann Agom Eze in her quest to keep deceiving the public and gain unmerited sympathy in a bogus attempt to fly the APC flag as the candidate for Ebonyi South Senatorial zone.
“While the society was still grappling with her perjury tantrums to a revered court of law, she is again employing primitive tactics and resorting to crude self-help in a bid to clinch a mandate she has no claim to, anyhow.
“In a most provocative and highly contemptuous letter addressed to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court Abuja, Mrs. Agom Eze went hallucinating about an imaginary court procedure and how it will end raising disparaging insinuations against the governor in the process.
“The Governor would have ignored the letter and its puerile contents but for the fact that silence is thought to mean consent in our society.
“The general public is enjoined to disregard these deliberate concoctions and misleading rants from a woman who had sought to represent a people got rejected but is now bent on showing them the rough edges they would have gotten from her.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Governor Umahi is ready for the Ebonyi South Senatorial APC rerun elections set for Sunday, 31st July 2022 where he hopes to receive the nod of his party to stand in the 2023 elections as their candidate in that senatorial zone.
“The general public, and the judiciary, in particular, are enjoined to disregard and ignore the veiled blackmail and an attempt to be a senatorial candidate by hook or crook instead of through known standards”.
