The Speaker of the Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Mr. Francis Ogbonnaya Nwifuru has reiterated that he is the only gubernatorial candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ebonyi State despite recent claims by other aspirants.

Nwifuru, however, debunked in totality the rumour making the rounds in the state that there was an APC parallel primary election in the state.

He made the condemnation while speaking with members of the correspondent chapel of the Nigeria Union of journalists, NUJ, Ebonyi State chapter during a courtesy visit, that took place at his lodge located along Ezza Road, Abakaliki.

Nwifuru vowed that he would be sworn in as the next governor of Ebonyi State come May 29th, 2023.

The Speaker claimed that Ebonyi State was one of the states that had a successful gubernatorial primary election in the country.

He disclosed that it was only Julius Ali Ucha who petitioned the congress, which he said had been treated.

“There was nothing like parallel congresses in Ebonyi APC. There was no petition from Ebonyi State. Only Julius Ucha submitted petition and it was treated.

“Ebonyi is one of the five states without petition. I am the candidate for APC in the state.

The Eastern Updates had earlier reported that David Umahi who is the Governor of Ebonyi State has reiterated that the state will vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and not the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi in the 2023 presidential election.

While Bola Tinubu, a former Lagos governor, is the presidential candidate of the APC, Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra, is that of the LP.

Recently, Obi has been gaining momentum in the south-east after defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
