The chairman of the South-east Governors’ Forum and governor of Ebonyi State Chief David Umahi on Thursday denied rejecting his appointment as the South east campaign coordinator of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Alahaji Atiku Abubakar.
Umahi made this known while briefing Journalists in Abakaliki shortly after an enlarged security meeting attended by all security chiefs, council chairmen and coordinators of the 64 development centres at the exco-chambers, government house.
The governor represented by the commissioner of information and state orientation, Senator Emmanuel Onwe said he didn’t reject the appointment as was alleged by mischief makers.
He also denied speculations that he had concluded plans to distribute bags of Abakaliki Rice branded with campaign pictures of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari, ahead of Christmas and New year celebrations.
Senator Onwe, noted that the trending reports that Umahi was working for another presidential candidate other than the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi, was false, wicked and malicious.
Onwe said his principal considers his appointment as the South East Coordinator of Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization as great honour and would discharge the duties with immense commitment and dedication.
“The governor never rejected his appointment as the Coordinator of Atiku/Obi Campaign Organization for South-East.
“The Social Media report to that effect is false and should be disregarded. I was at the exco meeting of yesterday, at no time was such thing discussed. The governor considers the appointment as great honour and would discharge his duties in that regard with great commitment and dedication.
“They also said that the governor has concluded plans to distribute bags of rice with the Pictures of the Presidential Candidate of the APC, that is also not true.
“The governor does not know any other Presidential Candidate except that of his party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Mr. Peter Obi,” he stated.
