“We condemn the killing of innocent citizens and Traditional Rulers in the state, all in the name of the quest for power.
“Ebonyi State requires peace and tranquillity. Let the citizens be allowed the freedom to elect leaders of their choice. That is the essence of a democratic election.
“Those who kill or mobilise thugs and arm them to kill our people are worse than evil desperados. They are the purveyors of falsehood and corruption.
“They had all the opportunities to offer good governance, but instead they preferred their private pockets. Now that the day of reckoning has come, and realizing that they have lost legitimacy and electoral value, they are running from pillar to post to terrorize the citizenry in order to steal their electoral mandate by force. This is the most shameful act ever committed against a free people.
The statement appealed to Ebonyians to come out en-masse and vote for candidates of their choice adding Governor Umahi and his foot soldiers cannot stop the popular will of the people.
