I Can’t Be Forced To Appoint Unprofessionals – Gov Nwifuru

Listen to article

Ebonyi State Governor, Francis Nwifuru has asserted that he can’t be forced by any faceless group to rush into the appointment of unprofessionals in his administration.

Nwifuru said he was in charge of his administration and that he was taking his time to assemble professionals who would be appointed into various political positions in the state.

The Governor was reacting to a statement credited to a group, Association of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural in the Diaspora, led by its President, Pascal Oluchukwu.

The President of the group, Oluchukwu, had challenged the Governor to take full charge of his government or resign from office.

However, in a statement signed and forwarded to The Eastern Updates by Monday Uzor, the Chief Press Secretary to Nwifuru, he said: ‘The Governor is taking his time to assemble professionals in various areas to help him drive down his policies and programmes and therefore will not be stampeded by any faceless group into rushing into appointments just to favour a certain group whose stock-in-trade is to fight every administration in Ebonyi State.

‘The appointment of principal officers, as alleged by this group, does not in any way signify the strength or weakness of the present administration under Governor Nwifuru.

‘The Governor, however, enjoins the good people of Ebonyi State to continue to support his administration as he has put every effort to bring experienced and worthy hands to bear in the governance of the state without succumbing to the whims and caprices of the opposition elements masquerading in the name of the so-called group.

‘Nwifuru has made it clear that no amorphous group or element can cause disaffection between him and his predecessor, David Umahi, and therefore calls on those fanning such ember to desist from doing so,’ he stated.
