APC Tackles PDP, Says “Idu Igariwe Is Not The Governor Of Ebonyi State And Can Never Be”



By Daniel Dafe

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi State has said that “Idu Igariwe is not the Governor of Ebonyi State and can never be,” adding that David Umahi remains the elected Governor of the state and that it is broad day light insanity of the arrogation of the title “His Excellency” by Igariwe to his name, claiming to be Governor.

Recall that a Federal High Court recently sacked Umahi as Governor for defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC, a judgment which Umahi has since appealed.

The party in a statement signed by Ogbuatu Chidi Simbad, State Publicity Secretary, said: “Ordinarily, we would have elected to remain calm but we see the need to make some clarifications as thus:
That Idu Igariwe is not the governor of Ebonyi State and can never be as no one has ever become Governor of a State through appointment since the return of democracy in Nigeria and as such should desist forthwith arrogating himself as the governor of Ebonyi State.”

Adding: “That if Idu Igariwe has the interest to contest which is not possible hence it is not the turn of Ebonyi South to produce the next governor of Ebonyi State, he should first of all resign his elective position as Member representing Afikpo North/Afikpo South Federal Constituency at the green chamber.

“That he(Idu) should know that the office of the Governor is not for loafers and dementias but for men of great character, honor and will power to take their immediate society to the next level.”

APC continued: “We are very much aware of the frustration that he(Idu) lost the grip of his constituents as a result of his brutish lifestyle and as such his desire to remain in power after 2023 election became truncated.

“We are using this opportunity to remind Mr idu Idariwe and those misleading him that Ebonyi State still has an active Governor, His Excellency, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi Fnse, fnate, whose tenure will end come 2023.”

“Henceforth, he should desist from arrogating himself with the name His Excellency and granting of press release as the governor of Ebonyi State

“That we only have one Governor and he is His Excellency, Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi FNSE FNATE who is the progressive leader of APC Ebonyi State, Governor of Ebonyi State, Chairman South East Governor’s forum and Co- Chairman South South Governor’s forum.

“That the good people of Ebonyi State are fully determined to defend the mandate which they gave to His Excellency, Engr Chief David Nweze Umahi within the breath and length of the law if he continues to parade himself in this unlawful manner,” APC added.
