The Ebonyi state governor David Umahi, has denied his involvement in the disruption of the march by the supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, Saturday.
A statement by the Special Assistant on Media and Strategy, Chooks Okoh, reads; “The attention of the Executive Governor of Ebonyi state has been drawn to some online publications and rumours making the rounds that he ordered the disruption of a gathering in support of one of the presidential candidates in the 2023 elections. This is not true.
“The Executive governor of Ebonyi state is certainly not aware of any disruption of any gathering as he didn’t order any.
“He is a democrat who believes firmly in the rule of law. He wishes every contending politician the very best and will insist on a level playing ground for all. If it is true that the police dispersed people, the answer will surely rest with the police.”
