ABAKALIKI—THE governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, In Ebonyi State, Engr. Dave Umahi, weekend enjoined Governor Martin Elechi to stop pointing accusing fingers at prominent sons of the state, including the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim and Chief Fidelis Nwankwo over the impeachment notice served him by the state House of Assembly last friday.

At a press conference in Abakaliki, the PDP governorship candidate who described Governor Elechi’s comments on the impeachment notice as false and deceitful, stated that it was the right of the House to serve an impeachment notice on any chief executive whenever it deemed necessary.

According to him, the governor had no reason to blame his political woes on the SGF, but should  rather explain the issues of alleged misappropriation and constitutional breaches highlighted in the impeachment notice and stop whipping up unnecessary sentiments.

Governor  Elechi had in a live TV broadcast on Ebonyi Broadcasting Corporation, EBBC, alleged that the SGF was behind the move for his impeachment.

But Umahi alleged that Elechi had done everything within his powers to make the President sack the SGF, so that he would continue to run the affairs of the state as it pleased him.
