Eye witness reports
The Ebonyi State Ward Congress Electoral Committee for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has described the Saturday exercise in the state as peaceful and good step at ensuring transparency ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The Secretary of the 5-man panel for the congress, Alphonsus Alubo, SAN, who spoke with Journalist on Sunday in Abakaliki, said the conduct was credible and acceptable.
“The 13 team leaders of the 13 local government areas of the state have done a good job. The results have been put together, the next is to take it Abuja. So, from what we have witnessed, the whole processes was okay,” Alubo stated.
It recalls that the PDP Delegate congress was held in all the 171 wards of the 13 local government areas of Ebonyi on Saturday.
Also speaking, Mr Silas Onu, PDP Chairman in Ebonyi hailed the conduct of the congress and added that it was a good outing for the party ahead of the 2023.
Onu charged politicians to steer clear of hiring thugs in order to win in a election, stating that act of thuggery is archaic to the development of democracy and political system.
He noted that his party was ready to win in the forthcoming election and would not be distracted by any hoodlums in the state and federal levels.
“I am glad over the conduct, it was peaceful.Though, some elements tried to create state of crisis during the exercise, but all those things were put in control.
“So, the exercise was peaceful, no rancour and quarrel. Every crisis was staged. Our party is on the move.
“We will not be distracted by hoodlums and selfish politicians. Ebonyi PDP is bigger than individual ambition. Our party will continue to be stronger and would definitely win come 2023.
“The party is bigger than me, because it not really about me but for the interest of Ebonyi people and nation at large; we will continue to promote and protect it.
“Violence does not bring good results but to destroy. If you employ violence, the outcome will be cancelation,” the Chairman stated.
