“Let me give him Odoh, APGA governorship candidate the last warning, being a gubernatorial candidate is not a license to commit a crime or destabilize the state, if he continues he will meet the laws of the land.
As for the so-called Anychuks he is just running against the time, he is my cousin his place to my place is just about 5 kilometers. The governorship of Ebonyi state is by rotation, I am finishing in two months the next is zoned to the North and it is going to Izzi.
“I want the world to ask them to concentrate on their rallies, and let everyone contesting know that the election is not 419, if any of us succeed in 419 you can not succeed in the election doing 419.
“Let me also warn the so-called Human Rights, one of them spoke to me and accepted that he has an interest in one of the Presidential candidates and they are watching. Human Rights should warn the person, they have taken a stand with PDP in the state, let us warn them that the matter they are raising is already in court.
“No one should be stopped from having a rally, from the security report I learned the opposition has recruited and branded them ESN and IPOB in all the local government to attack APC supporters and as of today no APC person has been arrested for tearing posters, and billboards, they have torn a lot of our posters and billboards some of them are already in court, they will go to the stadium, they deface the stadium, they destroy our posters and our infrastructures we have kept quite as the father of the state”.
