The gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) and Speaker of Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Francis Ogbonnaya Nwifuru, says he is sure of victory in the forthcoming coming election. He added that he would be sworn in as the next governor of Ebonyi State come June 12, 2023.
Nwifuru, in an interactive session with newsmen on Wednesday in Abakaliki, said: “dismiss insinuations making the rounds that there was parallel congresses conducted in Ebonyi State.”
According to him, Ebonyi State was one of the states that had a successful gubernatorial primary election. He disclosed that it was only Julius Ali Ucha that petitioned the congress, which he said had been treated.
“There was nothing like parallel Congresses in Ebonyi APC. There was no petition from Ebonyi State. Only Julius Ucha submitted petition and it was treated.
“Ebonyi is one of the five states without petition. I am the candidate for APC in the state. And by the grace of God, I will be sworn in on May 29th, 2023. It is better you tell everybody the truth about the party you belong to. I am in APC,” he stressed.
