The Peoples Democratic Party, Ebonyi chapter, on Thursday, January 7, accused the governor of the State, David Umahi of running the state government like his private business concern.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the PDP in Ebonyi State, Fred Udeogu, who said that the State University had collapsed due to the lack of funding by Governor Umahi.
He further accused the governor of falling out with everyone who was instrumental to his success.
Udeogu said that if not for the maturity of the people of Ebonyi, there would have been unimaginable hostility in the state, but the people are very docile.
Udeogu said; “The Government of Ebonyi State is run as a private business of one man and his immediate family. If you look at what is happening in the State today; you will see that nobody who contributed to David Umahi, becoming governor is still with him.
“If Ebonyi was to be another State, Umahi’s style of governance would have plunged it into an irredeemable crisis.
“I commend Ebonyians for their ability to condone Umahi’s high handedness and repressive governance
“I appreciate our people for condoning all the things happening in Ebonyi State. If not for the maturity of our people, there would have been unimaginable hostility in the State; but our people are very docile. If not so, the system is terrible; and the government is something else.”
“If you look at the entire State, you see that people who are coming from other states will think that work is ongoing; but I tell you, nothing is happening. The projects he is doing have nothing to do with the blueprint; designed by those who contributed to the creation of Ebonyi State,” he concluded.
