A nongovernmental organization, the Salt Family Foundation, has warned the Association of Ebonyi indigenes socio-cultural in the Diaspora (AEISCID) to stop raising unnecessary tension in the State.
AEISCID, in a press statement issued by its President, Mr Pascal Oluchukwu had called for the resignation of the Ebonyi State Governor, R.t Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru for lack of competence.
AIESCID also alleged that former Governor David Umahi is controlling the current Governor, saying that Umahi was spotted while inspecting ongoing projects in the State after his handing over to a new government.
Reacting to the press statement, the chief supreme leader of the Salt Family Foundation, Mr Anasi Alvis described it as pathetic that a group whose interest is to protect the people is misleading them.
“It is pathetic to however say that a group that presents itself as a nonpolitical organization working for the interest of Ebonyians in the diaspora is dabbling into the shady politics of disorganizing a new government that has come to give a breeze of fresh air to the good people of Ebonyi”. he said.
Alvis further noted that the appointment of special assistants by the governor on security is a welcome development as the people of the State have bestowed their trust in Governor Nwifuru to deliver his mandate and would not be stampede into appointing Commissioners against the law.
“As a lawmaker, the Governor fully understands the principle of separation of power as enshrined in the Nigerian constitution and will at the fullness of time and in full constitution of the legislative arm of government, send names of his Commissioner nominees and other appointees to the House of Assembly for screening and possible confirmation
“Therefore, Mr. Pascal Oluchukwu and his association of rabble-rousers and interlopers should desist from creating unnecessary tension in the State by dishing out malicious information against a government that is duly in charge of its affairs and is prepared to deliver good governance to the Ebonyi people“. He added.
He called on the Ebonyi people to continue showing love and support for Governor Nwifuru to succeed, while reassuring them of their support for his government.
“We urge the good people of Ebonyi State to continue to show love and support for the new government and to be patient as good things take time to manifest, and a new government would require time to unveil its plans and policies for them.
“Salt Family Foundation as a nongovernmental organization is committed to ensuring the welfare of the good people of Ebonyi State and therefore supports the good intentions of the current State Governor, R.t Hon Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru to provide a better life for all Ebonyians”. it stated.
