Governor Okorocha made the statement over complaints by stakeholders in the state during a familiarisation visit.

According to Dailysun, the stakeholders complained that they were being schemed out from the employment and empowerment programmes of the Federal Government and inability to pay the rent of the party’s secretariat.

Represented by the Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly,  Ugonna Ozurigbo, the governor noted that it was shocking and unbearable that Ebonyi State has a full fledge minister and the party could not pay N5 million rent.

The governor also admonished party members not to blame the president for sidelining the party as he noted that the appointment of Dr. Onu into the Federal Executive Council was to attract government’s presence to  the state.

“The main aim of governance is to help people around you.”  I am the deputy speaker of Imo State House of Assembly is to help people around me.

In the 36 states of the federation, we have 13 major ministers and Ebonyi is one. It is bad that Ebonyi APC has such high profile minister and you are still complaining of marginalisation from the Federal Government.

“Our visit will definitely address these issues. We are here to know your problems and complaints. Ebonyi should join hands and build APC to avoid being a minority in the South East. APC is waxing stronger and stronger,” Okorocha said.
