The governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, shut the Salt Lake, which belongs to the senator representing Ebonyi Central Senatorial Zone, Sen. Obinna Ogba, a devoted member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, before of their state congress on Friday.
According to sources, the hotel is the temporary office of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ebonyi State, where all members of the party will congregate to distribute state congress electoral materials at the Peoples Club Event Centre in Abakaliki.
Umahi stated that the reason for blocking off Senator Obinna Ogba’s hotel was a purported attempt by aggressive APC members to convene an alternative state congress at the venue.
The governor stated this while speaking to state stakeholders during an enlarged APC gathering held at the Christian Ecumenical Centre in Abakaliki.
“One, Kenneth Nwakparata wants to hold a parallel congress; he sent a letter on social media saying he wants to hold a parallel congress,” he explained.
That letter is a forgery, and I have made him wanted. Bring him to the police if you see him, and you will receive 500,000, and the congress will be held in the Obinna Ogba Hotel.
“Well, they went to inquire, and they stated they didn’t book the room but merely wrote to me.”
I’m canceling all meetings scheduled for tomorrow.
There will be no meeting there, and the CP must seize control of the area, as well as beef up security everywhere.
But if you want to try, you go there and see what happens. I am the state’s leading security official, and it is my responsibility to ensure law and order.
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, Make them try this one and see what happens.
It is not feasible for everyone to be happy; but, if you require accomodation, we will provide it.
It must not be your will to stand, but the will of the majority of Ebonyi state’s people, because Ebonyi state is APC, and APC is Ebonyi State.
“Let me compliment the various senatorial zones on the peaceful manner in which they resolved the seats allotted to them.
“Because the party’s constitution allows for zoning, there is nothing anyone can do about it,” he explained.
However, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Elder Fred Udeogu, advised the governor to avoid from making a stupid statement that could endanger the lives of the people and the entire state.
“I state unequivocally that the information you people have is as useless as it is unbelievable,” he says.
In my opinion, the proprietor of this motel is a genuine PDP member. It is difficult for APC soldiers to come here and use this space for anything.
“The amount of non-communication between PDP and APC is diametrically opposed.” It has been a long time since the governor has been looking for a way to seal a hotel owned by a prominent senator.
This is a pointless and pointless topic.
“Umahi lacks focus, and counselors say he will seal this hotel, so let him come and seal it.”
We’re just waiting. We applied to the police approximately a month ago, and they have the PDP timeline for the ward, local government, and state conventions. “We’re avoiding the federal facility,” he explained.
