The Ebonyi State Governor and the legit Senatorial flag-bearer of The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Ebonyi South, Governor David Umahi, have made is a legal offence in all the nooks and crannies of the state on the use of school premises and marketplaces for political rallies in the 13 local government areas of the state.

The Ebonyi first citizen, gave this directive on Monday while addressing stakeholders and non-governmental organisations during the 2023 budget estimate and citizen’s inputs that took place at the ecumenical centre, Abakaliki, the state capital, he alleged that schools and markets were used for heavy open defecation during rallies by politicians, hence the ban.

IsL source reports that the governor has directed all political parties to write an application to the Commissioner of Education, applying to be allowed to use school premises and marketplaces for campaigns.

Umahi is taking the footsteps of his former party man, Governor Nyesom Wike of River State who weeks ago issued a compulsory nonrefundable fore payment of N5,000,000 from any political party who wishes to carry out political campaigns or rallies in the state
