Nwifuru: No candidate imposition in upcoming Ebonyi LG poll

Ebonyi State Governor, Francis Nwifuru, has assured the public that there will be no imposition of candidates during the upcoming Local Government Election in the state. 

The Ebonyi State Independent Electoral Commission has set July 20 as the date for the elections across the 13 council areas. 

Governor Nwifuru emphasized his commitment to ensuring a fair electoral process by resisting any attempts to impose candidates before the polls. 

He made this pledge during a church service at the Government House Chapel, as conveyed in a statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary in Abakaliki on Sunday. 

Nwifuru affirmed that all aspirants in the local government areas will have an equal and fair opportunity to participate in the election.

Nwifuru said, “Stakeholders and people at the grassroots will participate in choosing credible candidates that will represent them. I am delighted with the way and manner the present council chairmen handled the issue of security and the way they have interacted with the people at the grassroots.

"Like I told them last night, those seeking re-election should strive to earn the trust and support of the stakeholders and the people. Our party is a large one; therefore, will do everything possible to resist the imposition of candidates.

"As a governor, I will not have much to say on who becomes the next local government chairman.’’
