Ebonyi people resident in Kuwait have distanced themselves from the press statement credited to one Mr Pascal Oluchukwu the acclaimed President of Ebonyians in the diaspora.
It recalls that Mr. Oluchukwu had issued a press statement calling for Governor Nwifuru to resign on account of incompetence and alleged that the Governor is being controlled by the former Governor David Umahi.
In a statement signed by the chairman of the group, Mr. Luke Anike said the Ebonyians in Kuwait are not part of the cluster where Mr. Pascal Oluchukwu belongs and urged him to exclude them in his adventure.
“The attention of Ebonyi people living in Kuwait has been drawn to a Press Release allegedly credited to the self-acclaimed President of a faceless group called “A diaspora group, Association of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural in the Diaspora (AEISCID), administered by one Ambassador Pascal Oluchuwku,” wherein he raised bogus claims about Ebonyi State government that is barely one month in Office.
“Ebonyians in Kuwait wish to use this medium to distance themselves from the activities of Ambassador Pascal Oluckuwu and the so-called PRESS Release, and that of the faceless group that is seeking nothing but mere attention from Governor Francis Nwifuru.
“We would have been surprised if at the end of Governor Francis Nwifuru’s administration Ambassador Pascal Oluchukwu did not allege anything as it has been his stock in trade.
“It is important to state that Governor Francis Nwifuru is not only in charge of his government but has the support and love of the entire people of the state who have absolute confidence in his ability to deliver on his campaign promises to Ebonyi people.
“Ebonyians in Kuwait hereby call on Ambassador Pascal Oluckuwu to within 72 hours back up his bogus claims with pictures or videos or we will press charges against him as a signatory to Press Release.
“Finally, we also call on Governor Francis Nwifuru to remain focused and take his time to assemble professionals in various fields to help him drive down his policies and programs and shun being stampeded by Ambassador Pascal Oluchuwku or any faceless group which is capable of making the Governor rush into hasty appointments just to favor him and his family he called “Association of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural in the Diaspora (AEISCID),” it stated.
