Group endorses APC candidate, Nwifuru for Enugu guber election
By KENNETH ONYEKWERE, ABAKALIKI
A group based in Ebonyi state known as Turn-By-Turn Initiative has endorsed the State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Hon. Francis Nwifuru in the March 11th guber election.
In a statement issued in Abakaliki, the National Convener of the Group, Comrade Ben Nworie said the endorsement was due to his credibility to sustain and advance the good legacies of the present administration.
Nworie, who was also a former Board member of Ebonyi Broadcasting Corporation said that out of the main contenders, Nwifuru is most suitable to succeed Governor David Umahi.
“As a concerned citizen of Ebonyi State, we have come together to champion the course of justice, equity and fairness. We have come together to convene a democratic discourse and set agenda that will continue to preserve and protect the lofty ideals of Ebonyi founding fathers. We are doing so bearing in mind that we must not compromise the future of the next generation.

“As believers in Turn-By-Turn Initiative, we have stated categorically within the bounds of democratic territory that power should shift to Ebonyi North Zone. By doing so, we have just observed the sequence it started in 1999. We, therefore, warn that if this sequence is truncated, it may jeopardize the unity and equity in our political system in Ebonyi State.
“We clearly know that even in the previous elections, all the zones had always participated in the exercise of fundamental human rights but we will continue to speak clearly on what should guide the majority of people in the state.
“We have also clearly examined and scrutinized the contestants, their strengths and weaknesses, their antecedents and competence and other factors, and therefore adopted the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, as the most competent to succeed Governor David Umahi in 2023, the National Convener said.
He, therefore, called on all Ebonyians to go and collect their PVCs so as to vote overwhelmingly for the APC governorship candidate in the State.
