A group, Ebonyi Concerned Citizens for Good Governance Tuesday condemned the attacks on Governor Umahi by opposition People’s Democratic Party(PDP) in the state following the kidnap of former aide to the Governor, Amos Ogbonnaya.

Barrister Ogbonnaya about a week ago was kidnapped and tortured by suspected political thugs and has since been released by his abductors.

But PDP and chieftains of the party have been accusing the state government of masterminding Ogbonnaya’s kidnap.

Ebonyi Concerned Citizens for Good Governance, in a communique issued at the end of their meeting signed by Prince Ifegwu Augustine and five others at the end of their quarterly meeting said “we are specifically sad with the attempt by the faceless political elements to capitalize on the alleged development to cast aspersion on the good image of our performing Governor who has sworn to take Ebonyi State to high equator of global development index.

“That Ebonyi Concerned Citizens for Good Governance has observed with great dismay the recent series of unpalatable and undemocratic activities of some unpatriotic Ebonyians that have continued to paint the good image of the State black.

“That the Group particularly expresses displeasure with the controversial account of alleged kidnap of one Mr. Amos Ogbonnaya and its attendant hue and cry. We are specifically sad with the attempt by faceless political elements to capitalize on the alleged development to cast aspersion on the good image of our performing Governor who has sworn to take Ebonyi State to high equator of global development index.

“That Ebonyi Concerned Citizens for Good Governance is of the view that the essence of opposition is to guide government through constructive criticisms and not emphasis on hate speeches, falsehood and assassination of characters of our leaders.

“The group uses this opportunity to admonish political detractors to refrain from their mischief against the people-oriented governance of our dear Governor, Engineer David Nweze Umahi,

“We therefore enjoin Ebonyians to disregard the falsehood of the above mischief makers as they represent the figment of their filthy imagination”.
