Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is a man of peaceL
The Campaign Organization of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as part of its series of shenanigans and mischief briefed journalists today, mischievously alleging brutalization and harassment of his supporters In Enugu.
These allegations are strange. In the last 7 years, the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has maintained peace in the state. Enugu is likely the only state with no political violence since 2015. The governor is a peaceful man. If he could not resort to violence in his 2019 reelection campaigns, how possible is it that he could resort to violence now that he is not on the ballot paper for the 2023 governrorship election?
It is obvious that Senator Ekweremadu has lost out after the election of the 3-man ad hoc delegates that will conduct the state congresses for the 2023 Enugu state governrorship poll.
His plan to manipulate the process failed when the PDP National Electoral Panel described the INEC-monitored Enugu Ward Congresses as peaceful, transparent and credible, and vowed that nobody can change delegates who emerged from the exercise.
Having seen the handwriting on the wall, it is believed that the camp of Senator Ekweremadu is already jittery. Their press briefing today alleging attacks on his supporters is a signal that they may resort to violence having failed to manipulate the process in the last state ward congress election.
There has not been violence leading to the conduct of ward congresses in the state. The people should be vigilant as those who lost out and failed to manipulate the process may resort to violence and intimidation, and then accuse the government mischievously.
The campaign organization of Senator Ekweremadu, led by one Ogbo Asogwa, should rather prepare for the gubernatorial primaries of the PDP and stop creating fears and raising false and baseless alarm of attacks on his supporters.
