Ebonyi Govt To CSOs, CUPP: You’re APGA Members
Ebonyi State government has berated Civil Society Organizations and Coalition of United Political Parties in the state that accused it of human rights abuses.
The CSOs and CUPP led by their leaders, Oko Sampson Nweke, Chinedum Enekwachi and Monday Eze had alleged that many human right abuses in the state especially in this electioneering period and accused the state government of being behind them.
But Special Assistant to Governor Dave Umahi on Media and Strategy, Chooks Oko described the CSOs and CUPP leaders as partisans and being APGA members.
Oko said “it is clear from the wordings of the so-called press statement that these are members of APGA masquerading as a human rights group.
“All the allegations are laughable as it is clear that attention diversion is the sole intent.
“The state is still in deep shock over the death of Ezeogo Igboke Ewa and the governor had directed the security agencies to leave no stone unturned in fishing out his killers. In that guise, we plead that the police should be allowed to do their job.
“It is unfortunate that any Ebonyian could throw aspersions on Governor Umahi’s direction without remembering all the countless selfless sacrifices he has made, and still making for the betterment of all.
“The referred cases has no direct bearing on the governor as he is very committed to upholding the rule of law and safe guarding the lives and property of all Ebonyians”. ENDS
