The Governor of Ebonyi State, R.t Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru has warned a group known as the Association of Ebonyi indigenes socio-cultural in the Diaspora (AEISCID), to desist rushing him into making appointments of commissioners against the laid down procedures by Nigeria’s constitution.

The  Association of Ebonyi indigenes socio – cultural in the Diaspora (AEISCID) had challenged Governor Francis Nwifuru to take full charge of his government or resign from office.

President of the group, Mr Pascal Oluchukwu made the call in a press conference held in Abuja on Tuesday, alleging incompetence from the governor and insisted that the former Ebonyi Governor , Engr David Nweze Umahi is still in charge of the government, and called on the inspector general of police, Usman Baba Alkali to withdraw the police attachment to governor Nwifuru.

In a statement by his chief press secretary, Dr. Monday Uzor, Governor Nwifuru who reaffirmed that he is in charge of his administration said he would carefully select professionals to fill in political positions to enable him to deliver good governance to Ebonyi people as promised in his manifesto.

While maintaining that he would not be pushed into having issues with his predecessor, the Governor called on Ebonyi people to support him as he would ensure that capable and experienced hands are allowed to serve them.
