The council chairs of the state’s thirteen LGAs would not serve a second term, according to Stanley Okoro Emegha, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress, the party in power in Ebonyi State.

Emegha cautioned council chairmen to focus on securing the APC’s victory in the upcoming Ebonyi South senatorial byelection, which is set for February 3, 2024, rather than considering seeking second terms in office.

APC Chairman Emegha stated this to party members at a meeting with senatorial zone stakeholders in Ebonyi South.

He assigned all of the Ebonyi government’s political appointees and party leaders, who are from the state’s southern senatorial zone, the duty of making sure the party wins their respective wards.

Emegha issued a warning, stating that any party leader or political appointee who loses their ward to the opposition in the next byelection for the Ebonyi South Senate seat may forfeit their job or appointment within the state.

“There are certain decisions that the Party has taken and we can’t stamp on it unless it is made known to the leaders. Those things are that anybody who is a serving council chairman should not come near or think of a second term in office.

“Whether APC will win the forthcoming Ebonyi south senatorial bye-election, is a sure deal. But we must see the efforts of the serving council chairmen before any of them talk about that.

“We must see the efforts of the councillors before any of them thinks of running again. And all the political appointees of the state government, we are watching them. Any political appointment that fails to win his/her ward very convincingly at least 80 percent, should expect that that position may be taken away from him or her.

“You should know that the governor, Francis Nwifuru has the right to dissolve his cabinet within two months, six months even in one or two days. And as such, every stakeholder (s) should be very serious about delivering their political wards to the senatorial candidate of the APC, Prof. Anthony Okorie Ani, come 3rd February 2024,” he stressed.
